Royals SP Chris Young shines against the A's on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/27/15) Royals starter Chris Young was terrific against the A's on Saturday. The right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out four, as he picked up his seventh win of the season.
Young (7-3) gave up an early run in the first, and another in the fifth, but was otherwise able to keep the A's in check all afternoon.
"I thought he threw great," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "He gave up two runs -- one on the error on Esky [Alcides Escobar] and then on the error he threw to third. They didn't knock in a run off him.
"He did a good job of making them chase up and then he'd come down. Go down and then chase up. Inside and outside. He was really good today."
This was a solid bounceback effort for Young, who had given up seven runs in his last start. His ERA sits at a nifty 2.71 mark for the season.
Royals SP Chris Young rocked for seven runs in loss
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/21/15) Royals starting pitcher Chris Young didn't have his best stuff during Sunday's outing against the Red Sox.
Young threw 4 2/3 innings and was rocked as he allowed seven runs on seven hits. He gave up three home runs before being pulled from the game. On top of it all, Young allowed three walks while only striking out two batters.
"It wasn't horrible until the fifth. That's when I lost it," Young said. "I just couldn't execute and they're a hot-hitting club right now. It's a good offensive team. I just fell behind too much in the fifth."
Young, who picked up his third loss of the season, allowed over six runs for the second time this season. He has a 2.83 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 63 2/3 innings this season.
Royals' Chris Young earns win on mound, at plate
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/16/15) Royals starter Chris Young won his second straight start, Tuesday over Milwaukee.
Young moved to 6-2 with seven scoreless innings. He allowed five hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out three.
Young also helped himself at the plate. He went 2 for 3 with three RBI.
Young became the first Royals pitcher to record three RBI in a game since Steve Busby, on Sept. 20, 1972. No Royals pitcher has had three RBI in a season since 2008.
Young's next start is Sunday, against Boston.
Sunday's Royals-Cardinals game is postponed
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/14/15) Sunday's game between the Royals against the Cardinals has been postponed due to rain, the Cardinals announced.
The Cardinals were set to send pitcher John Lackey to the mound to go against Chris Young. Lackey will start Monday against the Twins instead.
Young will have his start moved to Tuesday at Milwaukee, while Edinson Volquez will start Monday, reports FOX Sports Kansas City.
No makeup date for Sunday's game has been announced.
Royals SP Chris Young earns fifth win of season Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/9/15) Royals pitcher Chris Young did not allow a run during Tuesday's game to help send the Royals to a 2-0 win over the Twins.
"He had a disappearing slider," Royals manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "He mixed in some great changeups. There was a lot of easy outs. He just threw great."
Young (5-2) tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings and only allowed one hit during the start. He also struck out two and walked three. His ERA now stands at 2.25.
Tuesday's start was much needed for Young after he surrendered 10 runs in his last two starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Monday at Milwaukee.
|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.
