NEW YORK -- Chris Young, who had been designated for assignment by the Mets six days ago, officially was released Friday.

The Mets are responsible for Young's entire $7.25 million salary, less a prorated portion of the $500,000 major league minimum should he happen to sign elsewhere.

Young hit .205 with eight homers and 28 RBIs in 254 at-bats.

Matt den Dekker and Eric Campbell have platooned in left field since Young's ouster.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
