    • Red Sox's Chris Young: Late addition to ALDS roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Young was officially added to the Red Sox's ALDS roster Thursday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. The Red Sox removed Eduardo Nunez from the 25-man roster following his unfortunate knee injury Thursday and have elected to fill the void on the roster with reserve outfielder Chris Young. The 12-year veteran slashed .235/.322/.387 in 276 plate appearances and will likely only be used as a weapon against lefties.

    • Young went 3-for-4 with a single, a double, a triple, an RBI and a run against the Blue Jays on Tuesday. Only the homer was missing from his bid for a cycle. Young had appeared in only three of Boston's prior 12 games, going 0-for-11 in that span, so this big game will surely have him feeling better about himself, but he's still just a reserve piece in the outfield who won't find a home on many fantasy rosters.

    • Red Sox's Chris Young: Added to Saturday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Young was added to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds. Young was set to come off the bench Saturday as he regularly does, but fellow outfielder Mookie Betts (foot) was a late scratch, and Young will get the start in his place. He will man right field and hit seventh in Boston's batting order.

    • 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.

    • 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.
