Young won't rejoin Twins before Friday
Young left the team last Friday before the start of a four-game series at the New York Yankees to attend to his ill mother in California and was placed on the family medical emergency list.
Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Monday that Young will miss a three-game series at the Chicago White Sox that starts Tuesday. If Young is unable to return by Friday, Gardenhire said he likely would be put on the restricted list.
Young is hitting .277 with one home run and 14 RBIs.
