Washington Nationals SP Chris Young (neck, shoulder) is pain-free and ready to pitch after missing most of last season due to a pinched nerve in his neck, which also affected his shoulder. He used the offseason to build arm strength, and is hopeful of showing the team he can be the pitcher he was several years ago now that he is healthy.
Fantasy Tip: It seems like a bit of a long shot at this point, but if Young is able to re-gain his pre-injury form, he could still be a viable fantasy option in NL-only fantasy leagues should he win a rotation job. But he needs to have a strong spring, and more importantly, stay healthy.

Washington Nationals SP Chris Young was roughed up in his first start for Triple-A Syracuse Tuesday, April 23, allowing six earned runs, nine hits and three walks with just two strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings. He also served up three homers.
Fantasy Tip: Young is trying to serve as the team's sixth starter, available in the event of doubleheaders, injuries, etc., which would keep Zach Duke in the bullpen. However, he is going to have to produce better results than this to get the attention of fantasy owners even in the deepest of NL-only leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Young on your radar in deep NL-only leagues if the Nationals suffer an injury in their rotation.
