Young was released by the Mariners on Sunday, Rainiers broadcaster Mike Curto reports. Young signed a minor-league deal with Seattle in March but struggled at Triple-A Tacoma with a .236/.296/.362 slash line in 33 games. The veteran outfielder will look to latch on elsewhere but likely faces a tough path to the majors.
Young announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners. Young spent spring training in camp with Baltimore but was released from his minor-league contract last week. The 33-year-old will serve as organizational depth for the Mariners at Triple-A Tacoma after posting a .233/.293/.361 slash line across 242 plate appearances with the Angels over the past two seasons.
Young was released by the Orioles on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Young had a strong spring, hitting .323/.462/.452, but the Orioles couldn't find room for the 33-year-old veteran on their rebuilding roster. He could still return to the organization in a minor-league capacity if he's unable to find a big-league opportunity elsewhere.
Young signed a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training with the Orioles on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. The 33-year-old has received at least some big-league playing time for 10 straight seasons, though he didn't accomplish much last year in 41 games for the Angels, hitting just .202/.248/.303. He still has a bit of speed, which could be useful to deep-league owners should he find his way to regular playing time, but he doesn't offer much else, and the rebuilding Orioles will likely prefer to give at-bats to younger options.
Young is out of the lineup versus the Astros on Thursday. Young will retreat to the bench as Justin Upton (finger) comes off the DL prior to Thursday's series opener. With Upton back in action, look for Young to return to a reserve role following 15 straight starts.
