Dmitri Young Works Out For Pittsburgh Pirates

Former MLB first baseman Dmitri Young worked out for the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday in his quest to return to professional baseball, according to MLB.com. Young, 38, hasn’t played in the majors since 2008 with Washington.

"He met all the criteria we wanted to see," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "He ran the bases, took balls at first base, threw from the outfield and hit from both sides of the plate. We were able to get a read on him."

Young has dramatically slimmed down from his old playing weight of 295 pounds. He has also reportedly worked out for the Phillies, according to MLB.com.

"We've had some conversations about him internally," Hurdle said, "but I've yet to talk to [general manager] Neal Huntington. I'm glad he came in. It was a worthwhile experience, and where it takes us, we'll see."

Young spent 12 years in the major leagues, hitting .292 with 171 home runs and 683 RBIs with Detroit, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Washington. In his last season with the Nationals, Young hit .280 with four home runs and 10 RBIs in 50 games.
