CHRIS YOUNG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Young pitches Mariners to 4-3 win over Orioles

Four months ago, Chris Young was on the verge of retiring from baseball. Good thing for the Mariners he decided to give the game another shot. Young allowed two hits in seven shutout innings and Seattle snapped a four-game losing streak by holding off the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 on Saturday. "In my last start the team spotted me three early runs and I gave it right back in Anaheim...

The two luckiest pitchers of 2014?

We reside in a numbers-driven baseball world where players are no longer measured by wins, losses, runs batted in or batting average. Instead we measure batters by wOBA and WAR and pitchers by FIP and WAR (among others). As such, players who buck the trends and are considered successful in the old way of looking at things compared to the new way end up being considered lucky. Alfredo...

Chris Young Challenges the Data

“You should go look at the research again and see what the charts say,” Chris Young, the Seattle Mariners pitcher, emphatically told me one afternoon this season. We were talking about high fastballs and he didn’t agree with something I’d said. In particular, it was about his high fastballs. Only four starters are throwing the fastball more often […]

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. Young, returning from surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his right shoulder, made 20 starts for the Mets in 2012 and went 4-9 with a 4.15 ERA in 115 innings. The innings total was his highest since logging 173 innings with San Diego...

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...

It is time to end the Chris Young era in New York

Tuesday night the Mets scored more runs (9) than they had in their previous five games (8). They pounded out 14 hits, including multi-hit games from five of their first six hitters in the lineup. They had two homers and came back from 4-1 and 5-4 deficits. They also received 5.2 scoreless innings from their bullpen. They beat the hated Phillies, bringing their record against...

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...

Young Set To Return This Week

Chris Young was effective for the Mets last year, but was limited to 4 starts before his shoulder problems began. Over the next week, several Mets are expected to return from injury and rejoin the 25 man roster. One of these injured players is Chris Young. Young, all 82 inches of him, is expected to enter the Mets rotation upon return. Whether or not Young will help the Mets is a...
