Royals | Chris Young suffers minor back injury

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 18:42:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young (back) allowed two runs on three hits over five innings in a victory over the Chicago White Sox Friday, July 17, with four walks and four strikeouts. He left the game due to back tightness after throwing 82 pitches, although manager Ned Yost said it wasn't serious.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) said he expects to make his next start against the Pittsburgh Pirates next week. You may want to avoid using him in FantasyScore based on tonight's shortened outing.

Royals | Chris Young has solid night at plate

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 23:43:33 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young became the first Royals pitcher to drive in three runs in a game since 1972, and he scattered five hits over seven innings in a 7-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has had a renaissance season with a 5-2 record and 2.25 ERA. Keep him in your lineup as long as he is experiencing better times on the mound. As long as the Royals hit like this, Young should have plenty of protection.

Royals | Chris Young solid Sunday

Sun, 10 May 2015 23:46:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young allowed one unearned run on three hits in six innings of work Sunday, May 10, against the Detroit Tigers. Young has a .091 opponents batting average this year.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been a decent pitcher with his new team after a rebound season with the Seattle Mariners. This is certainly an encouraging start given the Tigers' hot bats, so you may want to keep an eye on Young as a low-cost pitcher.

Royals | Chris Young signed

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 11:20:02 -0800

The Kansas City Royals have signed free-agent SP Chris R. Young (Mariners) to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Young went 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA for Seattle last season, with opposing hitters batting just .234 against him. While he appears to be a good fit for Kansas City's starting rotation, he will probably be available on mixed league draft boards in the later rounds due to his injury history and walk-to-strikeout ratio. In order to clear space on the 40-man roster for Young, SP Kris Medlen (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list.

MLB | Chris R. Young nears decision on team

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 12:56:05 -0800

Free-agent SP Chris R. Young (Mariners) is nearing a decision on a team, and he is expected to sign by the end of the week.

Fantasy Tip: With a 12-9 record and 3.65 earned run average, you would have thought Young would be off the board by now. Still, with just 108 strikeouts compared to 60 walks and an injury history, this is why Young is considered a deep-round selection in most fantasy leagues.
