Red Sox | Brock Holt with day off

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 12:28:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B/OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and is hitting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin.

Fantasy Tip: With so few games today, Young is worth a look as a low-priced daily flier, but his upside is limited facing a righty and not a lefty. In his career, Young has hit just .224 against righties.

Red Sox | Chris Young playing left field Saturday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:08:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young is batting seventh and playing left field against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Young is in the lineup because regular left fielder Brock Holt is filling in for injured SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) at shortstop Saturday. He is just 3-for-18 with an RBI and should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests.

Red Sox | Three BOS regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 08:16:58 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Young and Hanigan have combined to go 1-for-14 at the dish this year and Hernandez will be making his MLB debut this afternoon. None of these players are recommended options for daily fantasy games today.

Royals | Chris Young tuned up in Houston

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 23:55:22 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris Young allowed six earned runs, nine hits and two walks in just 4 2/3 innings in a loss Monday, April 11, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Young is 0-2 with a 7.45 ERA through two starts, not exactly what fantasy owners had in mind when drafting him. Give him another start to turn things around. If he struggles again, reserve him and wait for him to iron out his issues.

Red Sox | Bad news for Rusney Castillo

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 14:18:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo will be more of a fill-in outfielder in left and center field with OF Brock Holt seeing the majority of playing time in left, according to manager John Farrell. Holt played seven positions in 2015 and hit .280 with a .727 OPS. Castillo has been a disappointment and is 10-for-44 (.227) with a .542 OPS in 16 spring games entering Tuesday, March 29. OF Chris Young is expected to play left field against left-handers.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo will basically enter as the team's fifth outfielder, which makes him more of an AL-only commodity with a chance to earn his way onto rosters in deep mixed leagues if more of an opportunity opens up. Holt is valuable mainly due to his multi-positional eligibility, which gives his owners plenty of flexibility in deeper leagues. But Holt has very limited upside without much power or hope for a high batting average.

Royals | Kris Medlen named fifth starter

Sat, 26 Mar 2016 11:18:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen has won the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation, although manager Ned Yost said he may have his turn skipped the first time around. SPs Edinson Volquez, Ian Kennedy, Yordano Ventura and Chris Young are the club's first four starters.

Fantasy Tip: SPs Chien-Ming Wang, Danny Duffy and Dillon Gee were among Medlen's chief competition for the job throughout spring training camp. Medlen went 1-1 with a 6.57 ERA in four Cactus League starts but had 15 strikeouts over 12 1/3 innings. The 30-year-old right-hander can be ignored outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Boston outfield set

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 14:04:58 -0800

Boston Red Sox OFs Mookie Betts, Rusney Castillo and Jackie Bradley Jr. are set to be the starting outfielders in 2016, with Bradley in center field, Castillo in left and Betts in right. OF Chris Young is expected to start against left-handed pitchers and mix in regularly against righties.

Fantasy Tip: After the breakout year that Betts had in 2015, he's unlikely to make it past the second round of fantasy drafts. Young is expected to platoon with Bradley the most, so those two are more of targets in deep mixed leagues. Castillo is the wild card. He has plenty of talent but only had five homers in 80 games last year. A cheap investment there could yield plenty of value.

Red Sox | Chris Young a fourth outfielder

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 09:41:25 -0800

Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young is viewed as the team's fourth outfielder, according to general manager Dave Dombrowski.

Fantasy Tip: Basically Young will serve a similar role to the one he held with the New York Yankees, and Boston will likely employ him against left-handed pitchers as a noted southpaw killer. Young is valuable for outfield depth in deep mixed leagues and is typically a great value target on FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Red Sox | Chris Young lands two years

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 06:57:01 -0800

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young signed a two-year, $13 million deal with the team Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Young hit lefties to a .327 clip last season, and they Red Sox have an abundance of talent in the outfield. Young looks pegged for a part-time role, and his fantasy value is pretty slight in mixed leagues.
