    • Red Sox's Chris Young: Platoon role fading
      By RotoWire Staff

      Young's struggle against left-handers this season has gotten to the point where manager John Farrell will not platoon him against southpaws, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports. "I think there comes a point here where it's, 'You know what, we have to pay closer attention to what is currently taking place to win today at basically all costs,'" said the manager. Young has made a living mashing left-handers, but is hitting just .191 against them this season. As such, Farrell will no longer reflexively put him in the lineup against southpaw starters.

    • Young will serve as the Red Sox's designated hitter and bat fifth Sunday against the Orioles, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports. Jackie Bradley's (thumb) recent placement on the disabled list has opened up some extra at-bats for Young, who will collect his third straight start Sunday. According to Scott Lauber of ESPN.com, Bradley was able to resume swinging a bat Sunday and could be activated from the disabled list during the upcoming week, at which point Young will likely fade back into a reserve role.

    • Red Sox's Chris Young: Heads to bench Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Young is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Young will be back on the bench following a string of three straight starts, as the return of Dustin Pedroia (knee) from the disabled list leaves no extra lineup spot available. With Hanley Ramirez (oblique) expected back Wednesday, Young's path to consistent at-bats will only become more difficult.

    • Red Sox's Chris Young: Powers club to win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Young went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double and five RBI during Sunday's win over the White Sox. Young made a rare appearance in the cleanup spot and did major damage Sunday. The veteran is playing sparingly and sports a mediocre .251/.332/.428 slash line for the campaign, so his fantasy value remains limited. Young should probably be left to cavernous settings.

    • Red Sox's Chris Young: Batting cleanup Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Young will start in right field and bat cleanup Sunday against the White Sox, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports. It's only the fifth start in the last 15 games for Young, who enters the lineup with Mookie Betts receiving the day off for rest. Young likely won't see many at-bats so long as the regular outfield trio of Betts, Andrew Benintendi and Jackie Bradley remains healthy, but he could have some appeal as a punt-play option in daily contests, especially in situations like Sunday where he occupies a prominent spot in the lineup.
