Joel Sherman has another arbitration avoidance reporting. This time, it’s for Eric Young, Jr. and the New York Mets.
The two sides came to an agreement that will pay EY $1.85 million for 2014. With the Rockies in 2013, Young earned $492,000. After four and a half years with the Colorado Rockies, Young was traded to the Mets in June for Collin McHugh.
Young set a career high in stolen bases in 2013 between the Rockies and Mets with 46, as he batted with a .249/.310/.336 slash line and 181 total bases. He will be in the mix for an outfield position, having played all three positions in his career.
