Young was claimed off waivers by Cleveland on Monday and optioned to Triple-A Columbus, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Young was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks last week. Expectations for a player who couldn't stick around on the team with the worst record in the league should be low, especially given that Young owns a 6.26 ERA in 41.2 innings this season. Aaron Civale (finger) was transferred to the 60-day injured list to clear a spot for Young on the 40-man roster.
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.
Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. The left-hander surrendered seven runs (four earned) across three frames in his lone appearance since being promoted July 9, and he'll head back to Reno with Taylor Widener recalled to start Tuesday. Young has a 6.26 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 38:20 K:BB over 41.2 innings for Arizona this season.
The Diamondbacks recalled Young from Triple-A Reno on Friday. The lefty allowed two runs in four innings with Reno after being optioned June 29. At the big-league level, Young has a 5.82 ERA through 38.2 innings in 2021, and figures to add some bullpen depth for the final three games before the break.
Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno following Monday's loss to St. Louis. Young struggled in his last three outings (two starts) with the Diamondbacks, most recently allowing six runs on seven hits across three relief innings Monday. He'll head to Reno for the first time since 2019, where the club could opt to stretch him out for starter innings. Young, who holds a 5.82 ERA while serving primarily as a reliever across 29 appearances, should have a strong chance to return to the majors later this season. Infielder Andrew Young was recalled in a corresponding roster move.
