Royals SP Chris Young takes loss against Cardinals on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/23/15) Royals starter Chris Young was bitten by the longball in his outing against the Cardinals on Thursday. The veteran right-hander allowed four runs in just three innings. He gave up five hits and a walk while striking out a batter, needing 68 pitches to get through the third.
Young, who drops to 8-6 on the year, was staked to an early 2-0 lead in this one. But a pair of two-run homers (Randal Grichuk in the second inning and Matt Carpenter in third) was Young's undoing in the 4-3 loss.
Young got off to a blazing start this season, posting a 2.11 ERA over his first eight starts. But things have gone down-hill since then. Over his last seven starts, he has a 5.50 ERA.
Royals SP Chris Young improves to 8-5 in win over White Sox
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/17/15) Royals starting pitcher Chris Young allowed two runs on three hits and four walks in five innings during a 4-2 win in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox. He struck out four.
Young held Chicago off the scoreboard until Geovany Soto led off the bottom of the third inning with a home run to tie the game at 1.
The veteran right-hander allowed a two-out solo home run to Adam Eaton in the bottom of the fifth inning, which tied the game at 2. However, the Royals went ahead in the top of the sixth inning, which allowed Young to pick up the win and improve to 8-5.
Young won for the first time in four July starts.
Royals to open second half with Chris Young, Edinson Volquez
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/12/15) Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday he will go with pitchers Chris Young and Edinson Volquez during the day-night doubleheader against the White Sox on Friday, reports MLB.com.
Yost added that he was comfortable with his rotation moving forward into the second half of the season.
"I don't need to see much improvement because I'm the one who is dictating how far they go," Yost. "I've taken these guys out of games after the sixth inning when they obviously could have gone farther because we have such a dynamic bullpen."
Royals SP Chris Young saddled with fifth loss of 2015 on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/11/15) Pitching on three days' rest, Royals right-hander Chris Young posted a quality start for the third time in has last four appearances, but he failed to pick up a win in his third straight start on Saturday. Young allowed three runs on five hits over six-plus innings, walking two and striking out five in the 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays.
The big blow to come against Young was a two-run home run by Edwin Encarnacion in the fourth inning to give the Jays a 2-1 lead. Young started the seventh inning, but allowed the first man to face him to reach before being pulled from the game. That runner would eventually come around to score, representing the third run on Young's ledger.
"I thought Chris threw the ball great; one pitch [to Encarnacion], and it really wasn't a horrible pitch," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "When he first hit it, I wasn't sure if it was going to get out. But he hit it enough to get it out of the ballpark."
Young (7-5) finishes the first half of the season with an even 3.00 ERA, as he has been a pleasant addition to the Royals' pitching staff so far in 2015.
|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.
