Time is running out for Eric Young, Jr.

Eric Young, Jr. has been auditioning for a starting outfielder position since the 2014 season began. He was given this opportunity for two reasons; Terry Collins likes to have speed at the top of the order, and Chris Young was hurt. Young just started a rehab assignment in Las Vegas, where he promptly hit two home runs and drove in five on his way to a 5-5 night on Sunday, then added...

Young Jr., Murphy a powerful 1-2 punch in Mets’ 6-4 win

If the Mets can get this kind of production from the top, they might not be destined for the bottom. Eric Young Jr. and Daniel Murphy were a lethal 1-2 combo at the top of the order Thursday night, reaching base seven times between them to inject life into a previously dormant Mets lineup.
