Chris Young lobbies to play in center field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Mets outfielder Chris Young doesn't hide the fact he feels center field is the best position for him to play, but he understands with a few capable center fielders on the roster, he will have to be ready to play in the corner outfield positions as well.

"I let the team know centerfield is where I was most comfortable," Young said, per The Star-Ledger. "I made that obvious. I understood that you have some guys out here right now that are capable of playing center field as well. Three or four guys. So with that being understood I’ll get my work in center field, but at the same time I need to get work at other positions."

Manager Terry Collins said at the outset of spring training he's not ready to predict what the outfield alignment will look like.

"I don’t know where everybody is going to be," Collins said. "Again, there’s a lot of things happening between now and April 1st. I told Curtis (Granderson) the one thing you gotta do is get used to right field a little bit. We got four guys right now that can go catch it."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"He did great," Carew told The New York Post of his work with Young. "We took out a lot of thinking. I want him seeing the ball and reacting to the ball. … He was concentrating on what we were doing. Chris is the kind if hitter that wants to pull everything. We worked on using his hands more instead of trying to muscle the ball. On tracking the ball."

Young confirmed that he worked with Carew on hitting to all fields.

"If you focus more on your average, the power will always be there," he said. "If you’re squaring the ball up more consistently, the power will come."

Despite his slow start, manager Bob Melvin is confident in Young.

"He's had a little bit of a tougher transition," Melvin said, per MLB.com. "This is different than anything he's had to do before, but he continues to work, and we're all optimistic that his talent level is going to take over and he's going to put up the type of numbers he has in the past.

"You look at his numbers, he still has a decent amount of home runs at this point in time for his at-bats. He's got some RBIs, too. It's the average that hasn't been consistent, so he continually works to try to improve on that."
