Red hot Chris Young out of the lineup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) With the return of Carlos Beltran to the starting lineup, Yankees outfielder Chris Young was forced to take a seat Monday at Tampa Bay. Young, who was signed to a minor-league deal after the Mets released him in August, had started seven straight games for the Yankees and is one of their hottest hitters, batting .385 (10 for 26) with three home runs during that stretch.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Report: Mets in market to acquire shortstop, left fielder


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) While the Mets might be shopping veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon by the July 31 trade deadline, they also appear buyers.

The Mets would like to acquire an upgrade at shortstop over Ruben Tejada and a power-hitting left fielder to join Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson as regulars in the outfield, industry sources told ESPN.

It is also believed Mets general manager Sandy Alderson could be looking to deal outfielders Chris Young and Eric Young.


Chris Young delivers game-tying, pinch-hit home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Mets outfielder Chris Young knocked a pinch-hit, two-run home run Saturday to tie the game in the seventh inning before his team went on to defeat the Marlins, 5-4.

Young was 0 for 8 in July going into Saturday's game before delivering his eighth home run of the season. The outfielder has hit .199/.280/.354 with eight home runs, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 206 at-bats.


Chris Young showing his streamability


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/3/2014) I'll never trust Chris Young implicitly. He's far from a control artist and, aside from his last start at the swing-at-anything Astros, doesn't get the strikeouts he did back in his prime.

But one thing he still does as well as he always has is serve up fly balls.

In the wrong venue, that could be a dangerous thing. Marco Estrada, who ranks second to Young in fly ball rate, has surrendered an MLB-leading 26 home runs and is on the verge of losing his job because of it. But playing half his games at pitcher-friendly Safeco Field, Young has turned it into an art.

As long as they stay in the park, fly balls yield a lower batting average than ground balls, so Young's 6.7 hits per nine innings -- fifth-best in baseball -- might not be so unsustainable, which means his 3.11 ERA and 1.12 WHIP might not be so unsustainable either.

Well ... in the right ballparks. You'll obviously need to pick your spots with him. He won't normally be as lucky as he was Wednesday in a hitter's haven like Minute Maid Park.


Chris Young launches two solo home runs in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Mets outfielder Chris Young went 2 for 3 with a walk and two solo home runs in his team's 10-1 drubbing of the A's Tuesday.

Young delivered the second of back-to-back home runs in the second inning and knocked his second home run in the fifth inning. He also scored on another home run one inning earlier to give him three runs in the win. Young has hit .209/.293/.352 with six home runs, 19 RBI and seven stolen bases in 182 at-bats.


Mets GM calls Chris Young report 'simply inaccurate'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson weighed in Monday afternoon about the ESPN report citing the team is ready to part ways with outfielder Chris Young.

"That report is simply inaccurate," Alderson told the New York Daily News. "He's on the team and starting to make bigger contributions."


Mets official disputes Chris Young rumor


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) The Mets don't seem happy with the ESPN report Monday quoting a source that outfielder Chris Young's "days are numbered" with the organization. 

A Mets official told the New York Post the speculation about Young being cut when outfielder Juan Lagares returns this week was "wrong" and he answered "no" when asked if taking Young off the roster was a possibility.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chris Young outperformed in loss to Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Mariners right-hander Chris Young had to be lights-out to outpitch Masahiro Tanaka on Wednesday - but the Yankees turned the lights out on him.

Young yielded four runs on seven hits in five innings with two walks and two strikeouts in taking his fourth loss in nine decisions. A three-run homer by Mark Teixeira in the fifth inning turned a close 1-0 game into a 4-0 deficit. Tanaka spent the rest of the game ensuring his defeat.

The Seattle starter is set to pitch again Monday at home against San Diego.


Chris Young sitting Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Mets outfielder Chris Young was not in the team's starting lineup Saturday.

Young had a crucial drop during Friday's extra inning game with the Phillies. It's likely just a normal day off for the outfielder. He should return to action shortly.


Chris Young clubs fourth home run Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Mets outfielder Chris Young belted his fourth home run Thursday against the Phillies.

With a man on in the fourth inning, Young stepped to the plate against David Buchanan. He managed to hit an 89 mph fastball out to left for the two-run shot. Young would go on to single during the game. He finished 2 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI.

Young is hitting .205 in 117 at-bats.


Chris Young smacks decisive home run in win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Mets outfielder Chris Young went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 9-7 win over the Yankees Monday.

Young's home run broke a 7-7 tie in the eighth inning, and it resulted in all three Mets outfielders hitting home runs in the win. He also managed a double earlier in the game. Young has hit .244/.314/.436 with three home runs, 11 RBI and three stolen bases in 78 at-bats.


Mets outfield about to become crowded situation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) With Juan Lagares set to return to the Mets' roster this week, manager Terry Collins is well aware he's going to have to find playing time for four outfielders -- Lagares, Curtis Granderson, Eric Young and Chris Young.

"The only message you can say is, 'Only three of you can play, so somebody, you’re going to have some nights off. Each and every one of you is going to get some nights off,'" Collins said, per the New York Post.

It appears the most likely situation will be Granderson playing regularly as the three other outfielders rotate between two positions.

"They all want to play, especially early in the season when it’s cooler and their energy stays up," Collins said. "Like in the case of Grandy, he doesn’t want to sit. He’s on the same page as [us], the only way you get out of this thing is to get out there and keep swinging."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
