Royals' Chris Young: Re-signs with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chris Young and the Kansas City Royals have agreed to a two-year, $11.5 million contract, Andy McCullough of the KC Star reports.

The veteran, who is reportedly taking a physical in Kansas City on Monday, went 11-6 with a 3.06 ERA last season, helping the Royals to a World Series victory. Young, 36, will likely remain in a similar role to the one he saw in 2015, serving as a back-end, low-risk starter. Even at his advanced age, Young likely would have been able to command a richer or longer-term deal had it not been for his lengthy injury history. He missed all of the 2013 season before returning and posting two straight seasons with an ERA well under 4.00.

Royals P Chris Young will start Game 4 of World Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kansas City Royals pitcher Chris Young will start Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday.

The 36 yuear old tossed three no-hit frames in extras Tuesday, earning the win in Game 1. He will still oppose Steven Matz on Saturday despite throwing 53 pitches, though Young will likely have a short leash, as he did in Game 4 of the American League Division Series.

Royals' Chris Young: Will start Game 4 of ALCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chris Young will start Game 4 of the ALCS, VP of Communications and Broadcasting for the Kansas City Royals Mike Swanson reports.

Young hasn't pitched much during the postseason, but when he has he's been extremely effective. In four relief innings against the Astros, the 36-year-old piled up seven strikeouts -- that figure as well as his astounding 3.06 ERA and 1.09 WHIP this season likely pushed him into the starting rotation over Kris Medlen. In his lone appearance against the Blue Jays this season, Young gave up three runs, including a home run to Edwin Encarnacion, in six innings of work.

Royals SP Chris Young strikes out five against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Chris Young tossed 6 1/3 innings on Friday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five and not factoring into the decision in the win over Minnesota Golden Gophers .

Young made 16 of his 34 appearances in 2015 out of the pen, but showed the ability to be effective when starting games off, surrendering a single run on four hits in 11.1 innings in his final two outings, both starts. He's a safe bet to return to the bullpen for the Royals in the playoffs, but the the lanky, soft-tossing righty likely performed well enough in 2015 for a team to take a flyer on him for 2016.

Royals pitcher Chris Young receives win in Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Chris Young earned his 11th win of the season Sunday, striking out a pair and walking just one while no-hitting the Indians through five innings.

A truly special start could have been in the cards for the soft-tossing veteran, but he had been coming out of the bullpen of late and left the game after throwing just 68 pitches. Young will remain in the starting rotation to finish out the season, and he will pitch Friday against the Twins.
