The end of spring training is often met with a lot of roster finagling. Jed Hoyer spoke at length during yesterday’s game about having the ability to make moves at this time year. Hoyer cited an insistence where the Red Sox had to pass on Nelson Cruz on waivers because lack of room on the 25 man roster. The Cubs have some roster flexibility with the injured players that could be added to the 60 day DL opening up 40 man roster spots, and the Cubs might have their eye on late spring training acquisition already.
Last night Ken Rosenthal tweeted that the Cubs were one of many teams in attendance for Chris Young’s final spring training start with the Nationals. Young had signed on a minor league deal in February to provide depth for the Nationals starting staff, but with 5 healthy starters Young had the option of opting out of his minor league deal to look for major league work. Later that night Chris Young did indeed opt out of the deal giving the Nationals 24 hours to add him to the m...

Chris Young has opted out of his contract with the Washington Nationals and there is the possibility that Young could return to the Mets. Let’s take a look at the situation.

Chris Young has a minor league contract that he can opt out of. He signed with the Washington Nationals in hope of making the Major League roster. That's not going to happen right now, so Young will opt out of the deal.
According to Mark Zuckerman, the only way to avoid the opt out is for the Nationals to add Young to their roster.

Depending on who you listen to, the New York Mets are either
discussing a contract with free agent Chris Young, or they’re not interested in
the veteran at all. Jim Bowden of ESPN notes that New York is in talks with
Young, while CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman says the Mets don’t appear to be considering

A victim of what amounts to one of the deeper stables of starting pitching, Chris Young opted out of his contract with the Washington Nationals with the hopes that he could find a major league role in another city. The Nationals could ostensibly retain Young’s services should he fail in that pursuit, but it’s plausible that there will be several organizations interested.
Chris Young says he wants to remain with the Washington Nationals. Manager Davey Johnson says he'd like Young to stay, too.
But when the right-hander removed his Nationals jersey Monday night after tossing four innings without allowing an earned run in a 6-4 loss to the Houston Astros, he assumed he had just pitched his last game for Washington.
Young has a clause in his minor...
Chris Young has made just 28 major league starts over the last three seasons, but it appears there’s no shortage of interest in the 6-foot-10 right-hander.
Young, who was an All-Star as a member of the Padres in 2007, had been pitching for the Nationals this spring, but the club granted him his release on Tuesday. Young reportedly “loved” playing with the Nationals, but he...
The news has come in that pitcher Chris Young (the pitcher, not the outfielder) is about to opt out of his contract with the Washington Nationals. The Cubs have pretty much rounded out their active roster, with a bench role going to (most likely) Steve Clevenger while the last bullpen spot might go to Hisanori Takahashi. However, should the Cubs decide that they don’t need...
