Pirates | Young Gets Heave-Ho

The long-awaited release of Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Kevin Young has finally happened, according to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Robert Dvorchak. Young was given his unconditional release Saturday night, following a stretch where his numbers fell dramatically over the past two seasons. "It's time for a change. I know that," Young said. "The only thing I regret is that I wanted to see the organization get over the hump. To leave it when it's at the same point it was 10 years ago is the most disturbing part."
