Royals' Chris Young throws four innings in minor-league game
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Chris Young threw four innings and 64 pitches in a minor-league game Wednesday as he continued to be stretched out for a long-relief role with the team, MLB.com reports.

"It was fine because I did get my work in," Young said. "That was the objective. It's always a little different throwing to minor-leaguers because you never know what to expect. Sometimes, I've done those minor-league games and gotten hammered. Sometimes, I've pitched great. Today was a little of both. I wasn't as sharp as I wanted to be, but there's still time to get better."

Young is unsure of when his next appearance will come.

"I think we're pretty much on schedule," Young said. "I think now I've gotten to the point where if they needed me to go longer [than 60-70 pitches], I could."

Royals' Chris Young bolsters bullpen competition this spring
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Chris Young is going to make it a difficult decision for manager Ned Yost at the end of spring training. 

"I think the signing fills a pretty big hole," Yost said. "We didn't really have a bona fide guy who can pick up innings. We'll continue to build the best bullpen possible.

"[Young] can be a long guy, and he can also pick up innings from six through eight if you need a day where you need to rest other guys. He can be a pretty dynamic piece to the bullpen."

Young posted a 12-9 record with a 3.65 ERA and 108 strikeouts in 165 innnings in 2014.

Royals sign Chris Young, place Kris Medlen on 60-day DL
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Royals announced that they've signed RHP Chris Young to a major-league contract. 

Young signed a one-year, $675,000 contract with up to $5.325 million in incentive bonuses, according to the Kansas City Star's Andy McCullough.

Young won Comeback Player of the Year with the Mariners last season, going 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA. 

To make room for Young on the roster, the Royals placed Kris Medlen on the 60-day disabled list. Medlen is still returning from Tommy John surgery.

Chris Young out of rotation for now
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Mariners starting pitcher Chris Young will not make his scheduled start Thursday at Toronto, according to MLB.com, though manager Lloyd McClendon didn't rule out him starting in the playoffs should the Mariners advance.

"I think he's probably out of gas from the starting standpoint," McClendon said. "Having said that, 8-10 days from now, who knows."

Though Young has been a key part of the Mariners' success this season, he has struggled in his last five starts, compiling an 8.35 ERA. His 165 innings this year are 50 more than he had last year and his most since he had 173 for the Padres in 2007. He will work out of the bullpen for now.
