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.
Chris Young gets knocked around Saturday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Mariners pitcher Chris Young had a disastrous start Saturday against the Astros.
Young gave up seven runs on eight hits over three innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Home runs were a major problem for Young. He gave up four long balls during the start. Trouble started in the first inning. With a man on base, Chris Carter launched his 37th home run of the year off Young. The next batter would double, and Alex Presley would follow that up with another two-run homer. Jose Altuve would single in a run in the third inning, while both Matt Dominguez and Carlos Corporan would belt back-to-back jacks in the fourth.
With the loss, Young dropped to 12-9. He’ll take on the Blue Jays in his next start.
Mariners announce weekend rotation plans
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/18/14) The Mariners announced Wednesday that Taijuan Walker will draw the start in Friday's series opener against the Astros in Houston.
Walker hasn't made a start for the Mariners since late July, but he's managed to make three appearances out of the bullpen in September. He owns a 2.96 ERA and 21:15 K:BB ratio in 24 1/3 innings.
The announcement will move Chris Young back to Saturday and Hisashi Iwakuma to Sunday.
Chris Young pitches well in defeat
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/14/14) Mariners pitcher Chris Young allowed two runs, both on solo homers, over six innings Sunday against the Athletics, but took the loss as Seattle fell 4-0. Young (12-8) allowed four hits and two walks while fanning five.
Young faces the Astros in Houston on Friday.
Mariners shuffle starting rotation
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/8/14) The Mariners announced some changes to the rotation on Monday, per the Tacoma News Tribune. The team will go with James Paxton on Friday against Oakland, then Felix Hernandez on Saturday. Chris Young will take the mound Sunday against the A's.|
The move was made to have Hernandez pitch the final game of the season, if necessary.
|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.
