Royals | Chris Young gets tuned up

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 21:35:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris Young allowed seven earned runs, seven hits and four walks with two strikeouts in just 2 1/3 innings in a loss Saturday, June 25, against the Houston Astros. He threw just 36 of his 67 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Young's ERA slipped back to 6.54, and he is now 2-7 on the season. Young has won just once over his past nine appearances with only quality start since April 22. He is only worth keeping on a roster in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues right now, and even that is debatable.

Red Sox | Chris Young placed on disabled list

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:50:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young (hamstring) has been put on the disabled list Thursday, June 23. No corresponding move has been announced yet.

Fantasy Tip: Young had to leave Thursday's game early after injuring his right hamstring, which is unfortunate for him, as he was receiving regular at-bats with the Red Sox. Ryan LaMarre replaced him in the ballgame and could end up getting a considerable boost as a result of the injury. Another name to look out for is Rusney Castillo.

Red Sox | Chris Young exits with injury

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 11:37:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young (hamstring) left the game Thursday, June 23, with an apparent right hamstring injury. OF Ryan LaMarre replaced him.

Fantasy Tip: Young had to be helped off the field, but it's premature to speculate how serious the injury is. LaMarre has minimal DFS appeal if he receives extra playing time.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez drops in lineup

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:25:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez is batting seventh in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Wednesday, June 22. OF Chris Young has moved up in the lineup and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has been on a bit of a cold streak and has recorded a .179 batting average this month. He should still be a decent starting option in most leagues despite the struggles. Young is hitting .261 over the last seven days and should have some value in deeper mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Chris Young back in the lineup

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:13:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young (quadriceps) is starting in left field and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Because of his strong play (.286/.353/.562 slash line through 116 plate appearances) and uptick in playing time, Young's now a viable option in deep mixed leagues. Hitting in a potent lineup doesn't hurt, either. He only missed one game with the quadriceps injury so return him to your starting lineups confidently Friday.

Red Sox | Chris Young hopeful to play Friday

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 13:24:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young (quadriceps) has tightness in his right quadriceps but is optimistic to play against the Seattle Mariners Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Young is having a nice season with a .286/.353/.562 line in limited playing time, but he has been starting more of late. He should be owned in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Stay tuned for updates on his status, but it appears this is just a minor injury.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo starting vs. Baltimore

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 12:18:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is starting in left field and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Tyler Wilson Thursday, June 16. OF Chris Young (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo has flashed upside, but he also posted an underwhelming .245/.304/.320 slash line through 161 plate appearances. View him as a bench option in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups, and in daily contests Thursday, Castillo is worth a flier. Young is having a nice season with a .286/.353/.562 line in limited playing time. He is worth owning in deep mixed leagues because of his uptick in playing time of late, however, you'll want to monitor his status given his current injury.

Red Sox | Chris Young playing well of late

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:55:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young is 17-for-44 (.386) in his last 14 games with nine extra-base hits, nine RBI and seven runs scored. His OPS has risen from .587 to .945.

Fantasy Tip: Young's fantasy value is on the rise, as he should see consistent playing time in left field now that Blake Swihart (ankle) is out indefinitely. Young is still a much better play when he faces a left-handed starter, but he has homered four times against righties this year despite a .224 average against them. Consider adding him in deep mixed leagues while he's hot.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart, Ryan Hanigan out

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 08:38:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Blake Swihart (ankle) and C Ryan Hanigan (neck) are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Sunday, June 5. OF Chris Young will bat eighth and play left field, while C Christian Vazquez starts behind the plate and bats ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Young and Vazquez are likely to see regular playing time for the next few weeks, since Swihart and Hanigan have been placed on the disabled list. They're worthy of consideration as roster depth for fantasy teams in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Two homers for Chris Young

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 21:41:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young swatted a pair of home runs Wednesday, July 1, against the Baltimore Orioles. He entered the game with just one homer all season.

Fantasy Tip: Young has played fairly regularly with Brock Holt on the shelf, but that playing time could be drying up with Holt making progress. Young remains nothing more than a short-term AL-only fantasy play.
