The Detroit Tigers reinstated outfielder Delmon Young from the restricted list on Friday, the first day he was eligible to return from a seven-day suspension issued by Major League Baseball.

The punishment stems from his arrest last week in New York City.

Young has batted .242 in 18 games this season with a home run and five runs batted in.

The Tigers made room for Young by designating the contract of designated hitter Brad Eldred for assignment. Eldred went 3-for-16 in five games with the Tigers.
