Recently Sandy Alderson has said that he is open to bringing back starter Chis Young.  Reports are that the deal would most likely be a minor league deal, so he won’t be taking a spot on the Major League roster.  I just don’t see the point in having him return.  He didn’t pitch for the majority of the last season and missed almost the entire season in 2010. Yeah I get that he pitched well in the beginning of last season, but it was only for 5 starts.  If Sandy adds him to the minor league roster, he will be doing so because he wants to add starting pitching depth. Can someone please explain to me why you would want to add an injury prone pitcher for depth?  If you are brining in someone to fill in if one of your starters get injured, doesn’t it make sense for you to sign somoeone who is durable? Signing Young is a low risk, potentially high reward fill in option. It doesn’t hurt us to make this move, I just don’t think it is worth it in the end. There is no reason to believe he is going to stay healthy, so there is no reason to believe that he is going to stay healthy.  To me, it just makes more sense to sign someone who will be there when you need him.
