Mets deny reports that Chris Young will be released

The New York Mets are not planning to release outfielder Chris Young reports Mike Puma of the New York Post.

Young, 30, is playing on a one-year deal worth $7.25 million this season but is hitting just .201/.284/.313 in 58 games.

Previously it had been reported that Young would be cut to make room for a returning Juan Lagares.

Even if Young stays on the roster for the time being its clear his days with the Mets are numbered unless he starts to produce in a hurry. It has been a sharp decline for Young who was an All-Star in 2010.
