Chris Young can't go four innings


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young was unable to go four innings Saturday against the Red Sox.

Young allowed three runs on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings. He struck out two and walked five during the outing. Young allowed runs in each of his first three innings. A sac fly drove in a run in the first inning. Young led off the second inning giving up a walk and run-scoring double. Another sac fly was responsible for the third run in the game. Young was pulled after giving up a single and loading the bases on two walks. He threw 93 pitches.

Young failed to go five innings, so he was not eligible for the win. He'll take on the Nationals in his next start.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Young (11-6) delivered five straight quality starts to open up July but could manage to get through six innings in either of his past two starts before delivering a quality performance Tuesday. His only run came in the top of the first after the Blue Jays led off the game with a walk and a double. Young owns a 3.20 ERA and 88:46 K:BB ratio in 140 2/3 innings.

He didn't come out for the start of the sixth after taking 92 pitches to complete the first five frames. Young owns a 3.27 ERA and 85:44 K:BB ratio in 134 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Blue Jays Tuesday.


Mariners making adjustments to rotation plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) The Mariners have made a change to their rotation plans in order to have Felix Hernandez, Chris Young and Hisashi Iwakuma pitch in a series against Toronto next week, according to The News Tribune.

The rotation this week will feature Hernandez and Young in a two-game series against Atlanta, which starts Tuesday. It will then be Roenis Elias, Iwakuma and James Paxton to open a series against the White Sox, which starts Thursday.

Seattle is pushing back Hernandez to Monday and that leaves an open date Sunday. The News Tribune suggests Taijuan Walker and Erasmo Ramirez are the top two candidates to be recalled to make that start. Walker is slated to pitch Monday for Triple-A Tacoma.

Chris Young serves up two homers in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Mariners line up post-break rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon announced his team's post-All-Star-break rotation plans Sunday, and Hisashi Iwakuma was given the nod to start the second-half opener Friday against the Angels.

He will be followed by Felix Hernandez and Chris Young in the three-game series at Los Angeles. Roenis Elias will then open a series at home against the Mets July 21, but McClendon did not announce a starter for the second game of the New York series. 

It is assumed Taijuan Walker will rejoin the rotation from Triple-A Tacoma. However, McClendon didn't seem pleased with how Walker fared for Tacoma Saturday, according to MLB.com. Walker allowed one run on four hits and one walk in five innings, but he needed 83 pitches and had only one strikeout. McClendon said the bar needs to be raised for Walker.


Hisashi Iwakuma, Chris Young set for weekend series


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) The Mariners set their rotation for this weekend's series against the Athletics Wednesday, according to The News Tribune.

Felix Hernandez was bumped back a day to start Friday, as previously announced. Hisashi Iwakuma will follow him Saturday, and Chris Young will get one more start before the All-Star break, set for Sunday's first half closer.


Chris Young surrenders two runs in loss Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young was saddled with a loss Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Twins.

Young (8-5) served up a solo home run in the fifth inning, and the Twins managed to scratch out another run on a sacrifice fly in the eighth. The pitcher hasn't surrendered more than two runs in any of his last five starts, and he's managed to issue only one free pass in each game during that stretch. Young owns a 3.08 ERA and 61:37 K:BB ratio in 105 1/3 innings. He's not expected to pitch again before the break.


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 fans eight, wins third straight


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young extended his winning streak to three decisions in a row Wednesday, in a 5-2 win over the Astros.

Young was unusually overpowering against a strikeout-happy Astros team, as he fanned a season-high eight batters over seven innings. He allowed just two runs on two hits, both of which were solo home runs, while walking one batter in the win.

Young improved his record to 8-4, and has not lost in his last four outings. He carries a 3.11 ERA into his next start, set for Tuesday against the Twins. 


Chris Young wins after five-inning start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young pitched just five innings Friday, but still came away with the win as they took down the Indians, 3-2.

Young allowed just one run in five innings of work, but came out after throwing 91 pitches in the win. He gave up four hits and a walk, while striking out four batters.

Young moved to 7-4 with the win, while he lowered his ERA to 3.15 through 91 1/3 innings of work. His next start is set for Wednesday in Houston.


Chris Young shines in no-decision against Royals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) His teammates waited one inning too long to score a go-ahead run, but that could not take away from a fine performance Saturday in Kansas City by Mariners starter Chris Young .

Young yielded only an Alex Gordon home run and two other singles in seven innings. He finished with one walk, two strikeouts and a no-decision.

He will hope for better offensive support Friday night against Cleveland.


Chris Young twirls six scoreless innings vs. Padres


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young earned a win Monday after giving up just four hits and one walk in six scoreless innings while striking out six in his team's 5-1 victory over the Padres.

Young (6-4) has managed to receive a decision in each of his last 10 starts, but Monday's win was his first scoreless outing since his first start of the season. He owns a 3.40 ERA and 41:33 K:BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings. Young is slated to take on the Royals Saturday.


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 takes step back in loss to Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young was not at his best and did not receive any run support on Friday against the Rays, dropping to 5-3 on the year. The right-hander coughed up three runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out three in five innings of a 4-0 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 17 1/3 innings, Young has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 3.42 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP in 68 1/3 innings. He will look to get back on track Wednesday at home against the Yankees.

Chris Young picks up second straight win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Young (4-2) bounced back after losses in his last two outings to take a no-hitter into the sixth inning before giving up a single. The only run he surrendered came on a home run to lead off the seventh. Young owns a 3.30 ERA and 24:23 K:BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings. He'll face the Tigers Saturday.


Chris Young yields two blasts in loss to Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Mariners starter Chris Young caught a break when his teammates tied the Wednesday afternoon game against Texas at 3-3 after he gave up three runs before recording his first out. But he couldn't stand prosperity.

Young gave up a home run to Shin-Soo Choo in the fifth inning to fall behind and his team stayed behind the rest of the way as he lost his second game in five decisions. Young, who gave up a two-run homer to Elvis Andrus in the first, walked three and struck out just one.

He has given up nine runs in his last 13 1/3 innings to raise his ERA to 3.53. He will try to improve his performance Monday against the visiting Angels.
