|Red hot Chris Young out of the lineup |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/15/14) With the return of Carlos Beltran to the starting lineup, Yankees outfielder Chris Young was forced to take a seat Monday at Tampa Bay. Young, who was signed to a minor-league deal after the Mets released him in August, had started seven straight games for the Yankees and is one of their hottest hitters, batting .385 (10 for 26) with three home runs during that stretch.

|Mets release Chris Young |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/16/14) The Mets have released outfielder Chris Young Friday.
Young was recently designated for assignment by the club, but they chose to cut bait. The outfielder hit just .205/.283/.346 over 254 at-bats. He's now free to sign with any team.
|By signing him to a one-year, $7.25 million deal this offseason, the Mets are attempting to do what the Athletics couldn't: revive Chris Young. Oakland thought it had him all figured out when it acquired him from the Diamondbacks last offseason, hoping to take advantage of his favorable split against lefties in previous years by making him a platoon player. But the reduced at-bats only seemed to exacerbate his shortcomings, his batting average plummeting to a career-low .200 as he struggled to make consistent contact. The Mets intend to make Young their everyday right fielder, or perhaps center fielder, which should help him bounce back. But to what, exactly? He's had only one season in the last five in which he's hit better than .240. He still has enough power and speed to approach 20 homers and 20 steals, but that would make him a poor man's Will Venable in a best-case scenario. If Venable is barely getting drafted in standard mixed leagues, you can certainly leave Young for NL-only formats.
