Royals | Chris Young moved to bullpen

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:03:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young has been moved to the bullpen. SPs Dillon Gee or Brian Flynn will "probably" start in his place Saturday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: This move should surprise no one, as despite a solid first season with the Royals last year, Young has just been awful in 2016. Not only does he own a putrid 6.90 ERA and 1.63 WHIP, but the veteran had also surrendered a whopping 26 homers -- in just 60 total innings! Meanwhile, Gee and Flynn are not worth rushing to acquire, as neither has a high ceiling.

Royals | Chris Young hammered north of border

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 20:20:15 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young allowed six earned runs, seven hits and no walks over 2 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday, July 5, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He also struck out four batters, throwing just 34 of his 56 pitches for strikes. He has allowed a league-worst 26 homers, including long balls in 13 straight starts to tie a franchise record.

Fantasy Tip: Young slipped to 2-8 and his ERA mushroomed to 6.90 to go along with an abysmal 1.63 WHIP. It's uncertain if Young will remain in the rotation after the All-Star break or the team will try to go another way, but it is clear that he is only worth retaining in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues right now.

Royals | Chris Young to start Sunday

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 21:41:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young will start on Sunday, June 5, against the Cleveland Indians. Young, who made seven starts before hitting the disabled list with a forearm injury on May 12, will have a pitch count of around 75. He returned over the weekend and made two appearances out of the bullpen, pitching four scoreless innings.

Fantasy Tip: Young was 1-5 with a 5.76 ERA as a starter this year, but he did a nice job for the Royals last season (11-6, 3.06 ERA, 1.09 WHIP). Those in AL-only leagues might want to make Young a speculative ad to see if he can turn things around.

Royals | Chris Young will pitch from the bullpen

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:31:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young (forearm) is expected to be activated from the disabled list this weekend and will pitch out of the bullpen, manager Ned Yost said Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, it is likely best to take a wait-and-see approach with Young, especially since the Royals bullpen is already loaded with quality arms to handle high-leverage situations. Plus, Young has a 6.68 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP through 32 1/3 innings this season.
