Tigers Have Released Dmitri Young

Wha???

I have no clue where this came from, but the Tigers released Dmitri Young following today's extra inning loss to the Mariners.

Here is the story, courtesy of the AP:

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said the move was "strictly performance-related."
This comes as a shock. Who bats third? If it's performance-related, what about some other guys on this roster? This will be discussed further at a later time, right now it's just not clear in my head what happened.
