CHRIS YOUNG RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Slider Moves Differently to Different Locations

I gave Royals’ right-hander Chris Young a bit of an incredulous look — “You’re throwing the slider a ton this year!” He shrugged.

Chris Young Against the Core

You can detect the nervousness. The Royals stormed out to take a commanding series lead, but then Johnny Cueto‘s own arm abandoned him, wrecking not only Game 3 but also a potential Game 7 as well. So there’s some discomfort there, some uncertainty, and now in a short while the Royals are going to throw Chris Young at the best offense in the league in the center of a homer-happy...

Young over Medlen: the right move for the Royals?

Medlen or Young? Young or Medlen? The Former Brave or the Has to Remain Brave Around Celling Fans? One Chris or Kris to rule them all. Going into what could be a decisive and otherwise extremely important Game 4 in the 2015 ALCS, this is the question Ned Yost faces. Will he go with the not-so-flashy proven veteran who has quietly gone about his business (but has a career...

The Iron Giant: How Chris Young saved the Royals season.

Chris Young was a last minute signing for Dayton Moore.  However, without him, the Royals may not be in the position they are in. I remember watching a game in last June when the Seattle Mariners were in Kansas City playing the Royals.  I remember watching this very tall pitcher for Seattle that couldn’t throw more than 86 mph and was in the strike zone.  Still, the Royals...

Will Seattle Mariners Pitcher Chris Young’s Comeback Year Take A Hit?

Seattle Mariners’ Chris Young might be getting bounced from the rotation. The 6’10 right-hander has pitched poorly recently and could be facing the hook from Manager Lloyd McClendon. The comeback-player of the year candidate has fallen on hard times. On Tuesday, Young didn’t get out of the first inning against the Oakland Athletics. In fact, Young hasn’t reached the seventh...

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 […]
