Red Sox's Chris Young: Tallies trio of hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

Young has received sparse playing time over the past few weeks, but he actually has collected a hit in each of his past seven starts. This strong string of performances has his average up to .276, and although he still isn't in line to see regular at-bats, he at least continues to have decent value when a few southpaws are lined up to face Boston in a given week.

Red Sox's Chris Young: Fills in at designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young served as the designated hitter Saturday with Hanley Ramirez unavailable due to a sore neck. He went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 7-1 loss to Houston.

Ramirez has missed the last two games due to the neck injury, paving the way for Young to get a couple of increasingly rare starts. He's started just four of the past 16 games. Ramirez's inability to play regularly in the field has limited him to designated hitter only. That development along with Boston's young and healthy outfield have served to cap Young's opportunities at the plate.

Red Sox's Chris Young: Hitting second Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will start in left field and bat second Wednesday against the Yankees, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

Young's starting opportunities have taken a hit since April with the Red Sox enjoying better health in the outfield, but manager John Farrell won't hesitate to make room for the veteran in the lineup when left-handers are starting for the opposition. The 33-year-old owns a career .266/.364/.476 line against southpaws, but an unremarkable 2-for-8 lifetime mark versus Wednesday's starter, CC Sabathia.

Red Sox's Chris Young: Draws start against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young started in left field Tuesday against White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana and went 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in a 13-7 win.

Young had been getting regular duty earlier this season when the Red Sox navigated personnel shortages due to the flu and an injury to outfielder Jackie Bradley, but he's had just 20 at-bats over the last 15 games. The offseason plan was for Young to serve as the designated hitter against lefties while Hanley Ramirez would slide to first base. That brought the potential for more than the 227 plate appearances he made in 2016. But with Ramirez's lingering shoulder woes preventing him from playing the field, he's been locked in at DH against pitchers of either hand. And with Boston having called up Sam Travis to play first base against southpaws, it seemingly has given up on the notion of Ramirez playing the field. That means Young's playing time will be suppressed as long as Boston's young outfielders remain healthy.

Red Sox's Chris Young: Smacks two homers Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo homers in Saturday's victory over the Twins.

Young led an 11-run Red Sox onslaught by homering in the second and fifth innings to give him his first two home runs of the season. Although he's hitting a solid .270, he offers fantasy owners little help in any other categories, making him a player best left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
