Yankees' Chris Young batting third Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Yankees right fielder Chris Young is batting third in Tuesday's matchup with the Nationals.

The Yankees are without typical No. 3 batter Alex Rodriguez as the team is losing the designated hitter in a National League park, so Young will bat third for the second time this season. He has hit .267/.330/.558 with six home runs and 12 RBI in 86 at-bats but has fared much better against lefties, hitting .382/.488/.824 with three home runs in 34 at-bats against southpaws.

The Yankees are underdogs (+130) in the nation's capital on Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Yankees LF Brett Gardner out of Saturday's lineup, Chris Young gets start


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) The Yankees will not start left fielder Brett Gardner Saturday in Kansas City, instead giving the start to right-handed hitter Chris Young against the Royals lefty starter Danny Duffy.

Gardner, a left-handed hitter, is 1 for 5 against Duffy for his career.

Young will bat second in the lineup.

Yankees give Carlos Beltran a breather on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/14/2015) Carlos Beltran is out of the starting lineup for the Yankees in Thursday's series-finale with the Rays. Chris Young will get the start in right field and bat sixth for manager Joe Girardi.

Beltran had started 10 straight games for the Yankees, and all but one he started in right field. Over that stretch, Beltran hit .270 (10 for 37) with a pair of home runs and six RBI. 

He'll give way to Young who has been slumping lately, hitting just .250 with a double, zero home runs and zero RBI over his last eight games.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Yankees Chris Young gets start in right over Carlos Beltran


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's Subway Series game against the Mets. 

Chris Young replaces Beltran, batting sixth in the lineup. It's Young's sixth start of the year in right. He also has five starts in left. 

"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
(4/23/2015) Yankees outfielder Chris Young went 3 for 6 during Wednesday night's 13-4 victory over the Tigers. 

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."


Yankees RF Chris Young homers, goes 3 for 3 on Tuesday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

He also walked twice, going 3 for 3 on the night.


Brian McCann's two-run 3B, Chris Young's grand slam carries Yankees


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/2015) Catcher Brian McCann went 3 for 4 with a two-run triple and right fielder Chris Young launched a grand slam in the Yankees' 9-0 win over the Rays on Saturday.

"It's a great feeling," Young said. "You get guys out there, and sooner or later one of us will come through. It was nice to have a game like this."


Yankees' Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez out of lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and designated hitter Alex Rodriguez are not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

Gardner is out of the lineup as expected after getting hit on the wrist by a pitch Monday. While he may be able to pinch run or serve as a defensive replacement Tuesday, he's unlikely to bat, the New York Daily News reports. Manager Joe Girardi hopes Gardner's ready to return to the starting lineup by Friday.

Rodriguez made his first start at third base Monday. With both players sidelined, Garrett Jones will bat sixth and DH, and Chris Young will bat seventh and man left field.

"You can't forget (that) it’s a long season," Joe Girardi said, per NJ.com. "When he's going good, you're going to want to keep him in there every day. That's how your guys get fatigued and that's how they end up injuring something in their leg. I have to guard against that. That's why I thought today was a great day to give him off."

The Yankees are underdogs (+110) against the Orioles Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Yankees right fielder Chris Young rips second home run of 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/11/2015) Yankees center fielder Chris Young provided most of the Yankees offense on Saturday, delivering a three-run home run in an 8-4 loss to the Red Sox.

Gardner, McCann return for Yankees; Beltran gets night off


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and catcher Brian McCann, who were given an off day Thursday against Toronto, returned to New York's starting lineup Friday night against Boston. Gardner will bat second, bumping Alex Rodriguez down to the No. 3 spot, while McCann will bat fifth in New York's home opener.

Carlos Beltran received the day off and Chris Young drew the start in right field.

Gardner is batting .167 (1 for 6) with a solo home run through two games, while McCann is batting .143 (1 for 7) with one RBI in two games. Beltran has just one hit in his first 10 at-bats.


Yankees OF Chris Young connects for two HRs on Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Yankees outfielder Chris Young homered twice during Monday's spring game against the Nationals. Both of his home runs came off major-league pitchers.

Young connected for a solo home run off Doug Fister in the fifth inning before hitting a two-run homer off Casey Janssen in the sixth inning.

"It feels good," Young said after Monday's game, per NJ.com. "In spring training everyone's trying to get their timing. You're trying to balance seeing pitches and being aggressive, so, I was able to see some pitches and I was aggressive today."

Young is batting .265 (9 for 34) with one double, two home runs and four RBI through 13 spring games.

"There was a lot on his plate last year," manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com. "New league, new starters all the time, bullpen pieces changing. Do I think he was capable of playing better? Of course. I always think all our guys are capable of playing better. But I think he’s going to have a good year."
