Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) had some cramping in his quadriceps Thursday, May 16, but he hopes to return from the disabled list Saturday, May 18.

Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) will play for Triple-A Sacramento Thursday, May 16, and is likely to come off the disabled list Friday, May 17. The team will decide to send C Luke Montz down or designate 1B Daric Barton for assignment to make room for Young on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor was sent down to the minors today, so Young figures to platoon in the outfield with Seth Smith, as he was doing before. Young has power, but he won't do you any favors in the batting average category. This makes him an asset in cavernous mixed formats with deep outfield setups.

Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) is feeling better and will play with Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, May 16. He's likely to come off the DL on Friday, May 17, if tomorrow's game goes well for him, health-wise.
Fantasy Tip: Young might be in line for quite a bit of PT with Josh Reddick (wrist) on the DL. He might again be worth a look in some mixed leagues.

Oakland Athletics OFs Coco Crisp (hamstring) and Chris B. Young (quadriceps) are close to a return, but Young felt something in his quadriceps during a rehab game Monday, May 13. Crisp had a great day of running, and he could return before Young Wednesday, May 15. Young will play in another game Tuesday, May 14, and he could be rested through the end of the week.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor's playing time will come to an end when Crisp and Young return. If Crisp is out there on your waiver wire, add him to your team now. Young figures to platoon in right field when he's back with Seth Smith. Both Young and Smith are worth roster spots in cavernous mixed formats.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) is likely to wait another week before picking up a bat. If he can't swing soon, he might decide to undergo surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick had similar surgery on his other wrist a few years ago and missed two months after that. He's remaining optimistic right now, but if he needs surgery, Chris B. Young and Seth Smith will benefit the most in his absence.

Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) will start a rehab assignment at extended spring training in Arizona Monday, May 13. If all goes well, he could be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, May 15.
Fri, 10 May 2013 18:48:13 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) is expected to come off the 15-day disabled list when he is eligible Wednesday, May 15.
Thu, 09 May 2013 14:32:22 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (hamstring) has started taking swings off a tee since he's feeling better, and he could start running soon. However, OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) is expected to be ready to return before Crisp. Both players can come off the disabled list May 16.
Fantasy Tip: With Josh Reddick (wrist) also on the DL right now, the Athletics are testing their outfield depth. Once both Crisp and Young return, Michael Taylor will lose his value for those taking advantage of his playing time in deep mixed leagues. Seth Smith should re-enter into a platoon with Young when the time comes, too.
Wed, 08 May 2013 14:16:07 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (hamstring) has taken some swings but has yet to try running.
Fantasy Tip: Bob Melvin said that Chris B. Young (quadriceps) is closer along than Crisp, and both players are eligible to return from the disabled list next Tuesday.
