Young, 30, received an opportunity with the Braves but struggled offensively. Over 35 games with Atlanta, he posted a .169/.229/.273 batting line and drove in five runs. He also stole seven bases.
While he did not have a notable amount of success with the Braves, he was a bit more productive after being sent to Triple-A. Over 67 Triple-A contests, he batted .248/.349/.312 in addition to one home run and 27 RBIs. Young is a career .248 hitter and spent time within the Mets' organization throughout 2013 and 2014.
Young can play all three outfield positions and as a result gives the Mets additional bench help moving forward. He is likely a candidate to be promoted once rosters expand in September.
