Arbitration: Eric Young, Jr. and Mets work out a deal

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.
