Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said it's a "reasonable assumption" that SP Chris R. Young will enter the season as the No. 5 starter for the team. "Our guys saw him in Florida," Zduriencik said. "They liked what they saw. They thought he was back from his injury. He's healthy -- as good as you can expect for a guy who has been through what he's been through." Young said he's completely healthy after having surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last year. SPs Roenis Elias and James Paxton are expected to take the other two rotation spots that were up for grabs.
Fantasy Tip: Young is simpley a short-term rotation filler until Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) and Taijuan Walker (shoulder) can return, possibly in mid-April. Young has minimal value in AL-only leagues until then.
