Delmon Young‘s seven-day suspension ends Friday, but manager Jim Leyland doesn’t plan to immediately put Young back in the Tigers’ lineup.
Leyland told Jason Beck of MLB.com that Young “will not play Friday because he needs to get back into a routine a little bit, get out on the field, taking fly balls, BP on the field, all that kind of stuff.”
Young will be reinstated to the active roster, so he may wind up getting into the game off the bench, and if nothing else he’ll resume getting paid after losing about $250,000 in salary during the suspension.
Young is currently barred from being in the Tigers’ clubhouse or dugout following his late Thursday night/early Friday morning arrest on assault and hate crime charges in New York.
