Delmon Young won’t be back Friday
But it’s just a matter of giving him some more time to work back into the swing of things.
“He needs to get back in the routine a little, you know, out on the field, taking fly balls, BP on the field, all that kind of stuff. So it’s very unlikely he’d play Friday. Now, would I put him in the game, if I needed to? Sure. But he won’t start Friday’s game. That’s the only reason, only because he needs to get back, get some BP, run around the outfield a little bit,” Leyland said.
“I think he’ll be in there very shortly. But, like I said, I want him to get back acclimated. It’s not like he’s been off that long. I think you’ll see him in the lineup real soon, but he will not be in the lineup to start Friday.”
