    • Young went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 9-5 loss to San Diego. With the game already well out of reach, Young knocked a two-run homer in the ninth inning as part of a slight comeback attempt by the Diamondbacks. The 26-year-old rookie is 3-for-8 with two extra-base hits to start his MLB career.

    • Young went 2-for-2 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's loss against the Astros. Young came into the game as a defensive replacement in the sixth inning, and he recorded his first two MLB hits in his first two official at-bats. It remains to be seen if this will translate into more playing time, but he might provide a spark Arizona needs offensively.

    • Young will be recalled by the Diamondbacks on Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno in March after being added to the 40-man roster during the offseason, but he'll now join the major-league roster for the first time. Under the rules of the 2020 season, the 26-year-old won't accrue an extra year of service time this year since the threshold has passed. Young had a .903 OPS with 29 home runs and 81 RBI in the minors last year, but he'll likely play a depth role at second base, third base and shortstop as he continues to develop in the majors.

    • Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday. Young was added to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, so he was able to begin spring training in the Diamondbacks' major-league camp, but he'll prepare to begin the year in the minors once again. The 25-year-old has been effective this spring, going 7-for-20 with one home run and four runs in the Cactus League. If he can remain productive during the season at the Triple-A level, Young could make his major-league debut at some point in 2020.

    • Young was added to the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster Wednesday. This protects him from the Rule 5 draft. The third piece in the Paul Goldschmidt deal, Young is essentially big-league ready, he just needs a place to play. He hit .280/.373/.611 with 21 home runs and a 24.5 percent strikeout rate as a 25-year-old in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. Young saw roughly equal time at second base, third base and shortstop at Triple-A, but he probably won't play any shortstop in the majors, barring an emergency. He will likely be given a chance to make the roster out of spring training.
