Delmon Young reinstated; Eldred DFA'ed

As expected, the Tigers reinstated outfielder Delmon Young on Friday, after the expiration of his seven-day suspension from Major League Baseball for his intoxicated incident in New York a week ago.

To make room for Young on the active roster, the Tigers designated the contract of designated hitter Brad Eldred for assignment. Eldred goes on waivers, but since he hit just .188 with the Tigers after tearing it up at Triple-A Toledo, in all likelihood, he'll go back to the Mud Hens.

Young is eligible to play immediately, but manager Jim Leyland said earlier in the week that he'd likely ease him back into playing time after a week of inactivity.
