Young has seen a dip in playing time recently due to his struggles at the plate, as he has just one hit over his last 19 at-bats.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

"Cy's been playing well. Righties have had more success off Harvey. I thought we'd put Cy out there," Girardi said to The Journal News. "We're trying because he's playing so well. The good thing is, we've run into some lefties. We'll see another one tomorrow. There have been some situations where I've been able to get him in there. He’s been swinging so well, we’re looking for ways."

The Yankees are -115 money line favorites at home against the Mets. 


Yankees OF Young seeking to show Mets they made mistake


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Chris Young is apparently not the vengeful sort, but he will be a little more pumped up than usual when his Yankees host the Mets this weekend.

The outfielder was cut by the Mets last season, but has come on strong with their crosstown rivals in 2015. He boasts a terrific slash line of .368/.442/.816 with four home runs and has been earning at-bats against both righties and lefties.

He will at least want to prove to those who didn't believe in him that they should have.

"Maybe a little bit," he told NJ.com when asked if he wanted to prove his doubters wrong, "because you've had struggles and you want to show people you can still be capable of doing what you've done in the past."

The 31-year-old Young signed a one-year, $7.25 milliin deal with the Mets, but batted just .205 in 88 games before his release.


Yankees OF Chris Young records 3 hits in win over Tigers


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Young scored two runs but did not record an RBI. One of his hits went for a double, his fifth of the season. He's started the season on fire and has a slash line of .368/.442/.816. Manager Joe Girardi previously said he's continuing to look at ways to keep Young in the lineup. 


Yankees' Girardi finding ways to keep Chris Young in lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi is finding it difficult to keep outfielder Chris Young out of the lineup as he keeps producing offensively. Young hit his fourth home run and second in three games Tuesday at Detroit.

"He's playing so well," Girardi said, per NJ.com. "He really is. I'll find a spot for him somewhere (Wednesday)."

Young, who is batting .344 with an .844 slugging percentage through 12 games, said he is not having any trouble adjusting to his role as a bench option for New York.

"I'm not going to say it's easy, but it's definitely what I was aware of coming in," he said. "I just try to do extra work when I get the chance to when I'm not playing -- go to the cage and try to get my eye right and try to stay ready. Even in the games I don't start, there's a good chance I'm going to come in that game. That helps as well. I think you always stay on top of your toes naturally and you never get too relaxed because you know that even if you're off that day you know you have a chance to get in."
