Royals' Chris Young throws four innings in minor-league game
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Royals pitcher Chris Young threw four innings and 64 pitches in a minor-league game Wednesday as he continued to be stretched out for a long-relief role with the team, MLB.com reports.
"It was fine because I did get my work in," Young said. "That was the objective. It's always a little different throwing to minor-leaguers because you never know what to expect. Sometimes, I've done those minor-league games and gotten hammered. Sometimes, I've pitched great. Today was a little of both. I wasn't as sharp as I wanted to be, but there's still time to get better."
Young is unsure of when his next appearance will come.
"I think we're pretty much on schedule," Young said. "I think now I've gotten to the point where if they needed me to go longer [than 60-70 pitches], I could."
Royals' Chris Young bolsters bullpen competition this spring
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Royals pitcher Chris Young is going to make it a difficult decision for manager Ned Yost at the end of spring training.
"I think the signing fills a pretty big hole," Yost said. "We didn't really have a bona fide guy who can pick up innings. We'll continue to build the best bullpen possible.
"[Young] can be a long guy, and he can also pick up innings from six through eight if you need a day where you need to rest other guys. He can be a pretty dynamic piece to the bullpen."
Young posted a 12-9 record with a 3.65 ERA and 108 strikeouts in 165 innnings in 2014.
Royals sign Chris Young, place Kris Medlen on 60-day DL
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/7/15) The Royals announced that they've signed RHP Chris Young to a major-league contract.
Young signed a one-year, $675,000 contract with up to $5.325 million in incentive bonuses, according to the Kansas City Star's Andy McCullough.
Young won Comeback Player of the Year with the Mariners last season, going 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA.
To make room for Young on the roster, the Royals placed Kris Medlen on the 60-day disabled list. Medlen is still returning from Tommy John surgery.
Report: Free agent SP Chris Young to choose team by end of week
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Free agent pitcher Chris Young is planning to review his contract offers and make a decision on which team to sign with by the end of the week, according to ESPN.
Young won the AL Comebacker Player of the Year award in 2014 after going 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA in 30 outings (29 starts) for the Mariners.
Chris Young out of rotation for now
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/22/14) Mariners starting pitcher Chris Young will not make his scheduled start Thursday at Toronto, according to MLB.com, though manager Lloyd McClendon didn't rule out him starting in the playoffs should the Mariners advance.
"I think he's probably out of gas from the starting standpoint," McClendon said. "Having said that, 8-10 days from now, who knows."
Though Young has been a key part of the Mariners' success this season, he has struggled in his last five starts, compiling an 8.35 ERA. His 165 innings this year are 50 more than he had last year and his most since he had 173 for the Padres in 2007. He will work out of the bullpen for now.
|2014 summary: Chris Young at Safeco Field was a match made in park-factor heaven. An extreme fly-ball pitcher, his louder fly balls translated to outs there when they might have been home runs elsewhere. As a result, he had a 2.40 ERA there compared to 5.03 on the road, helping him deliver 12 victories for the Mariners.|
Playing time status: Home runs haven't been the biggest problem for Young over his career. He missed most of three straight seasons, 2009-2011, with shoulder problems, and then spent all of 2013 in the minors, missing significant time with a neck strain. But he managed to stay healthy last year, throwing his most innings since 2007.
2015 outlook: The problem for Young is he's a free agent, putting his value at the mercy of where he lands. If it's another pitcher's park, he'll have some low-end appeal -- and no more than that since he's not really a strikeout pitcher anymore. Even if he winds up at a park like Safeco, the injury risk might make him a better candidate to add off waivers later if he gets off to a hot start.
