CHRIS YOUNG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mariners at Marlins game preview

TV: FOX Sports Florida Time: Pregame coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. Chris Young's first start in the majors in 19 months was likely everything he and Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon could have hoped for. The only thing missing was a victory. After tossing six scoreless innings in his home debut with the Mariners, Young will look for similar success Friday night when slumping...

Young Could Make Perfect Sense To Replace Dickey In Mets Rotation

Chris Young remains a viable option to be re-signed to fill the rotation void according to what a source told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Mets’ Chris Young Ends On A High ($350K) Note

It was thought Chris Young might not even pitch this season coming off serious shoulder surgery. Instead, he collected $350,000 in bonuses last night for reaching the 20 starts-110 innings milestone. That’s a lot of money for a supposedly cheap team out of contention to shell out the final week of the season. Other teams in similar situations have pulled the player so they wouldn’t...

Young appears back on track; D-backs, too?

PHOENIX -- On Family Day at Chase Field on Sunday, Chris Young brought his English bulldog -- named Prince Superman Young -- into the clubhouse following another big win over the Astros. It made for some nice symbolism. Young has brought some bulldog to the park himself recently, and he appears to be returning to the form that made him one of the most feared hitters in the National...

Chris Young is solidifying a very solid New York Mets rotation

During the New York Mets 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers last night, right-hander Chris Young tossed 6 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits, en route to his second victory of the 2012 season: Young retired the first nine batters he faced — striking out three — before hitting his only rough patch of the game in the bottom half of the fourth.  After three-straight...

The crazy and unlikely success of Chris Young

I am glad that Chris Young is back in the rotation for the Mets; however, I am not quite sure exactly why. Obviously, he is an upgrade on Chris Schwinden. But if you go down and list his pros and cons, there are an awful lot of things to be concerned about with Young. He’s injury prone, his fastball doesn’t light up the radar guns, he gives up a ton of fly balls, he has unsustainable...
