While in town to play the Yankees in April he was arrested and charged with yelling anti-Semitic epithets at a group of tourists and shoving one person to the ground.
Young’s lawyer is now seeking a plea agreement “that’s acceptable to both parties” and would avoid a trial. For now he’s scheduled back in New York court on November 7, which is after the playoffs are over.
Young, who was suspended for a week following the incident, has struggled this season with a .266 batting average, .297 on-base percentage, and .404 slugging percentage in 96 games, posting a terrible 69/14 K/BB ratio at age 26.
