Chris Young officially released by Mets
New York Mets
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.
