The Diamondbacks designated Young for assignment Wednesday.

Arizona booted Young from its 40-man roster to make room for reliever Ty Tice, who was claimed off waivers from Atlanta. Young turned in some decent numbers over 15 starts with the Diamondbacks as a rookie in 2019, but he's been ineffective while working out of the rotation or in relief across the past two seasons. Dating back to the start of the 2020 season, Young has posted a 5.83 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 88 innings.
