Analysis: The 30-year-old hit .205 for the Mets before his release this month. He's shown power at times in his career, hitting 32 home runs in 2007 with Arizona, but he's always struggled to get on base. The minor league season is winding down, but manager Joe Girardi says it's not his call whether Young will join the Yankees in September.
