Dmitri Young Wants To Return In 2012

First baseman Dmitri Young, who last played in the big leagues with the Nationals in 2008, wants to return to the Majors in 2012 and plans to play in the Venezuelan Winter League beginning in October, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com (Twitter links).

Young, 38 next month, officially retired in March 2010. The No. 4 overall pick in 1991 by the Cardinals, Young was limited to 50 games in his final season in the bigs due to a variety of injuries. His last productive season was in 2007, when he hit .320/.378/.491 for Washington. For his career, Young has posted a .292/.351/.475 line in 5,252 plate appearances.

The 13-year veteran broke in with the Redbirds in 1996 and later played for the Reds and Tigers, as well as the Nats. Young tells Ladson he currently weighs 245 pounds and is in the best shape of his life (Twitter link). His brother, Delmon Young, is an outfielder with the Tigers.
