Eric Young Jr was a Yankee for a moment, and now he’s not. He’s elected free agency.
YESNetwork.com has the story…
“The Yankees have announced that speedy outfielder Eric Young Jr. elected to pursue free agency over accepting an outright assignment from the team, per Yankees PR.
The 31-year-old veteran got just one plate appearance for the Yankees this season, but made six appearances as a pinch-runner and defensive substitution.
He scored two runs, swiped one base and patrolled center field in his short stint with New York, after joining the team on August 31 from Milwaukee.”
And even with only those contributions, Young was a New York Yankee doing whatever they needed. Now however, he’ll look for a more permanent gig… who can blame him?
