Delmon Young Placed On Restricted List In Wake Of Arrest

Jason Beck of MLB.com tweeted Saturday morning that Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young had been placed on the restricted list.

Young was arraigned on hate crime harassment charges Friday after being arrested early Friday morning for shouting anti-Semitic epithets outside a hotel in New York. Young faces up to a year in jail if convicted.

In a statement, Young said,

"I sincerely regret what happened last night." He apologized to the Tigers owners and organization, his teammates, family and Detroit fans.

"I take this matter very seriously and assure everyone that I will do everything I can to improve myself as a person and player."

Young was off to a rough start this season. He was hitting .242 with 16 hits and 15 strikeouts in 66 at-bats.

Worth, who was recalled from Toledo, has appeared in three major league games this season. He has five at-bats with one hit and one strike out.

The restricted list is akin to the disabled list, but a player need not be injured to go on it.
