DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young has been reinstated and is eligible to play Friday night against the Chicago White Sox.

Young was suspended for seven days without pay by Major League Baseball after he was arrested last week and charged with yelling anti-Semitic epithets during a late-night tussle at a New York hotel.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland has said he didn’t plan to put Young in the lineup Friday, giving him the day to run around and get loose, but he could be used as a pinch-hitter in the series-opening game against Chicago.

Detroit cleared a roster spot by designating the contract of Brad Eldred for assignment after he hit .188 in five games.
