Phillies Consider Adding Delmon Young, Delmon Young’s Baggage

Just a few more weeks until pitchers and catchers report, but Ruben Amaro Jr. is still apparently willing to make deals. Reports say the Phillies are considering signing outfield Delmon Young, a free agent who played last year for the Detroit Tigers. The good news? He’s productive, hitting .267 and 74 RBI last season. The down side? “Young has had a history of off the field problems. Young was arrested outside a New York hotel in April of 2012, intoxicated and accused of shouting anti-Semitic slurs.” Oy.
