Prosecutors are not offering a plea deal to Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young, who's accused of making anti-Semitic remarks during a fight outside a New York hotel.
Young was briefly in a Manhattan court Tuesday for an update on his misdemeanor hate-crime harassment case. A prosecutor says he isn't making any plea offer, at least for now.
Police say Young yelled anti-Jewish epithets at a group of tourists, got into a tussle and tackled one to the ground last month. The Tigers were in New York to play the Yankees.
Defense lawyer Daniel Ollen has said Young reacted to something said to him. Young has said he regrets what happened.
He declined to comment Tuesday. He's free on $5,000 bond and due back in court Aug. 2.

A situation arose Sunday that is going to make it difficult for Detroit to send Quintin Berry back to the minors when Austin Jackson comes off the disabled list at week's end. Jackson is eligible to return June 1, when Detroit returns home to host the New York Yankees in a weekend set. Detroit won't have to rush him due to Berry's fine job as a fill-in (through Sunday...
If the Detroit Tigers are to live up to expectations and capture the American League Central, they’ll need to get solid starting pitching from more than Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer. The hard-throwing duo leads the club in wins — as they did last season — but they can‘t carry the entire load. Doug Fister, Rick Porcello and Drew Smyly need to consistently put their names...
DETROIT Former Detroit Tigers All-Star outfielder Magglio Ordoez will announce his retirement in a special pregame ceremony on Sunday at Comerica Park.
Ordoez played the final seven seasons of his 15-year major league career with the Detroit Tigers and will forever be remembered for his walk-off, three-run home run off in Game 4 of the 2006 American League Championship Series....
The Detroit Tigers have placed starting pitcher Doug Fister on the disabled list today with a side strain. Fister aggravated the same injury that caused him to miss a month of the season in April and May.
This is concerning news for Fister owners and Tigers fans, as Fister may be sidelined for some time to allow his oblique to heal. Fister was primed for a solid season as the number...
Former Tigers and White Sox outfielder Magglio Ordonez will be retiring on Sunday, during "Magglio Ordonez Day" at Comerica Park when the Tigers host the Yankees.
Ordonez has dealt with injuries over the last two seasons, playing in fewer than 100 games in each after injuring his ankle. He re-fractured the ankle in the playoffs this past year, and made the decision to...
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland and third-base coach Gene Lamont were ejected in the third inning of Monday's game against the Boston Red Sox.
Leyland was upset over a call that allowed Boston's Mike Aviles to stay at the plate in the second. Aviles appeared to strike out for the final out, but it was ruled a foul tip that bounced before it was gloved by catcher Gerald...
Detroit manager Jim Leyland wasn't a happy man after the Tigers fell to the Red Sox on Monday. And for good reason. One blown call in the second inning seemed to change the entire complexion of the game, turning the tide in Boston's favor for the rest of the tilt. Mike Aviles appeared to swing and miss at a pitch with a runner on second and two outs. Tigers catcher Gerald...

Justin Verlander has looked like the best pitcher in baseball for a few years now. This season, the flame-throwing right-hander appears to be confusing hitters even more than usual. The confusion began on Opening Day when verlander threw eight scoreless innings in a 3-2 win against the Red Sox. The reigning AL MVP and Cy Young award winner has continued his dominance since, but Verlander...

Jim Leyland was thrown out of his third game of the month, and retreated to the clubhouse Monday afternoon to watch replays that confirmed what his eyes had told him minutes earlier. The tipped foul by Red Sox shortstop Mike Aviles had been caught cleanly by Tigers catcher Gerald Laird, and should have been the third out.
Memorial Day- The weather couldn’t have been more perfect yesterday on Memorial Day for a day baseball game. The sox took advantage of a missed umpire call yesterday and had a 2 out rally to put them on top early in the game and never looked back. Mike Aviles was given a second opportunity after the home plate umpire ruled strike 3 a foul ball and that catcher Gerald Laird didn’t...
