Athletics | Chris Young placed on disabled list

The Oakland Athletics have placed OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) on the 15-day disabled list because of a left quadriceps strain. Young said he is able to jog but experiences soreness whenever he tries to move any faster than that. He is eligible to be activated May 15, and is expected to be ready to return by then. In a corresponding move, OF Michael Taylor has been recalled from Triple-A Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Bob Melvin said Taylor is expected to see more playing time than in his previous stints with the club, especially when the A's are facing left-handed pitchers. However, he should only be considered for deep AL-only leagues.
