Chris Young out of rotation for now


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Chris Young will not make his scheduled start Thursday at Toronto, according to MLB.com, though manager Lloyd McClendon didn't rule out him starting in the playoffs should the Mariners advance.

"I think he's probably out of gas from the starting standpoint," McClendon said. "Having said that, 8-10 days from now, who knows."

Though Young has been a key part of the Mariners' success this season, he has struggled in his last five starts, compiling an 8.35 ERA. His 165 innings this year are 50 more than he had last year and his most since he had 173 for the Padres in 2007. He will work out of the bullpen for now.


Chris Young gets knocked around Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young had a disastrous start Saturday against the Astros.

Young gave up seven runs on eight hits over three innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Home runs were a major problem for Young. He gave up four long balls during the start. Trouble started in the first inning. With a man on base, Chris Carter launched his 37th home run of the year off Young. The next batter would double, and Alex Presley would follow that up with another two-run homer. Jose Altuve would single in a run in the third inning, while both Matt Dominguez and Carlos Corporan would belt back-to-back jacks in the fourth. 

With the loss, Young dropped to 12-9. He’ll take on the Blue Jays in his next start. 


Mariners announce weekend rotation plans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) The Mariners announced Wednesday that Taijuan Walker will draw the start in Friday's series opener against the Astros in Houston.

Walker hasn't made a start for the Mariners since late July, but he's managed to make three appearances out of the bullpen in September. He owns a 2.96 ERA and 21:15 K:BB ratio in 24 1/3 innings.

The announcement will move Chris Young back to Saturday and Hisashi Iwakuma to Sunday.


Chris Young pitches well in defeat


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young allowed two runs, both on solo homers, over six innings Sunday against the Athletics, but took the loss as Seattle fell 4-0. Young (12-8) allowed four hits and two walks while fanning five.

Young faces the Astros in Houston on Friday.


Mariners shuffle starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Mariners announced some changes to the rotation on Monday, per the Tacoma News Tribune. The team will go with James Paxton on Friday against Oakland, then Felix Hernandez on Saturday. Chris Young will take the mound Sunday against the A's.

The move was made to have Hernandez pitch the final game of the season, if necessary.

Chris Young allows two unearned runs in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Chris Young pitched well but only lasted five innings in a no-decision Saturday night against the Rangers in Arlington. He allowed two unearned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six. Of his 95 pitches, 58 were strikes.

Young has allowed eight earned runs over his last 9 1/3 innings of work. He owns a 3.35 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 156 innings. His next start will come Friday at home against Oakland.


Chris Young will remain in rotation, start Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon told reporters that pitcher Chris Young will remain in the rotation and start Saturday against the Rangers in Arlington, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Young was pulled in the first inning Monday after giving up five runs on Monday. He owns a 3.46 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 94:54 K:BB ratio in 151 innings.

Chris Young could be out and Taijuan Walker in Seattle rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Chris Young could be out of the Mariners rotation. Rookie Taijuan Walker could be in.

That is the result the last two appearances from both pitchers. Young was mashed for five runs in 2/3 of an inning Monday in Oakland and has yielded eight runs in his last 4 1/3 innings. The fear is that he could be hitting a wall at 151 innings pitched this season.

"He's in uncharted territory," Lloyd McClendon told the Tacoma News Tribune. "I've got to watch him. I've got to evaluate him. I've got to make a decision."

McClendon indicated that Walker would replace Young in the rotation. Walker gave up just one run in six innings against Oakland in relief of Young.

"Obviously, he pitched extremely well," McClendon said. "I think it showed you what he's capable of. We've just got to get him to the point where he can be consistent every time out with that."


Chris Young questionable to make his next start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young is questionable to make his next start, according to 710 ESPN.

Young was pulled in the first inning Monday after giving up five runs. Manager Lloyd McClendon said he would monitor Young throughout the week in order to make sure he's 100 percent. If Young does well in the coming days, he should make the start, according to McClendon.


Chris Young pulled in first inning Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young couldn't make it out of the first inning Monday, giving up five earned runs on four hits and two walks while recording just two outs in his team's 6-1 defeat against the A's.

Young (12-7) surrendered a one-out double in the first inning, but the fireworks didn't begin until there were two outs in the frame, when he gave up a two-run home run as well as two singles and two walks before being removed. Young owns a 3.46 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 94:54 K:BB ratio in 151 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rangers Saturday.


Mariners tweak weekend rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon told reporters that pitcher Chris Young will have his next start pushed back to Monday. Roenis Elias will start in his place on Saturday, per the Seattle Times.

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. 


Chris Young twirls a gem in win over Tigers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young twirled a gem for the win Sunday against the Tigers in Detroit, improving to 12-6 on the season. The right-hander yielded four hit and one walk while striking out four over six shutout innings of an 8-1 victory.

Over his last two starts covering 12 innings, Young has allowed only one earned run. He owns a 3.07 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP over 146 2/3 innings. He will make his next start Saturday at Boston.

Chris Young tosses six one-run innings in win vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young earned a win Tuesday, giving up one earned run on just two hits and two walks in six innings and striking out three in his team's 6-3 victory over the Blue Jays.

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's scheduled to face the Tigers Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Young (10-6) fell behind after giving up three runs in the third inning, but his offense bailed him out and let him leave with a 6-3 lead. 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 takes step back in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young took a step backward in a no-decision Thursday night in Cleveland. The right-hander permitted four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out one over 5 1/3 innings of a 6-5 victory.

Chris Young gets back on track with dominant outing vs. O's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Mariners pitcher Chris Young got back on track with a dominant effort Saturday at home against the Orioles, improving to 9-6 on the year. The right-handed hurler scattered two hits over seven shutout frames. He struck out eight and walked three in 108 pitches, 69 for strikes.

Over his last three starts covering 19 innings, Young has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 3.04 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over 124 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Thursday at Cleveland.

Chris Young serves up two homers in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Young enters the break with a 3.15 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over 111 1/3 innings of work. He will make his first start after the All-Star break Sunday against the Angels in Los Angeles.

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.
