When Dmitri Young donned a Detroit Tigers uniform from 2002 and into 2006, one could easily describe him as “husky.” Young was last listed at 6-foot-2 and 295 pounds — that’s pushing Prince Fielder status.

Nowadays, Young has been seen hanging at Washington Nationals games — his last major league team — and is completely unrecognizable from his old image in the MLB.

Nationals radio broadcaster Dave Jageler posted a photo on Twitter Friday evening of Young doing an interview on the field with play-by-play man Charlie Slowes.

After all of the problems “Da Meat Hook” had in his last season with the Tigers, he is looking pretty good in his post-baseball endeavors.
