Braves Rumors: Atlanta Not Targeting Delmon Young

The Atlanta Braves are not expected to pursue free agent outfielder Delmon Young to fill their vacancy in left field, reports Dave O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

O’Brien indicates there are multiple reasons why the Braves and other teams haven’t targeted Young yet this offseason. While the slugger was a former first-overall pick and has shown flashes of talent throughout his career, Young carries with him character issues stemming from several events.

The 27-year-old spent the 2012 season with the Detroit Tigers, hitting .267/.296/.411 with 27 doubles and 18 home runs over 574 at-bats while spending most of his games as the team’s designated hitter. He owns a career line of .284/.317/.425.
