Young had his contract purchased from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. He'll take the roster spot of Bud Norris (knee), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. Young held his own while filling in for Mike Trout (neck) earlier in the season, slashing .260/.336/.396 with eight stolen bases in 34 games. Young is expected to serve as outfield depth for the big club, though he likely won't see much playing time with Trout, Cameron Maybin and Kole Calhoun all playing well in the outfield.
Young was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake City on Thursday, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports With Mike Trout (thumb) set to come off the DL on Friday, the Angels cleared a roster spot by outrighting Young. The 32-year-old Young appeared in 34 games while Trout was sidelined and slashed .260/.336/.396 with three home runs and eight stolen bases in that stretch. He'll no longer have a spot on the 40-man roster, which complicates his route back to the big-league club later in the season.
Young is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Young continues to split time in left field with Ben Revere and will again give way to Revere ahead of the series finale against Yu Darvish and the Rangers.
Young (hand) will start in left field and bat ninth Wednesday against the Twins. Young will reenter the starting nine following a four-game stint on the bench that limited him to pinch-running duties. With his bruised hand presenting no complications during batting practice, Young should settle back into a near-everyday role in left field through the All-Star break. Once the second half opens, Mike Trout (thumb) is expected to be ready to come off the disabled list and take back his starting gig from Young.
Young (hand) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Twins, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The hand injury Young suffered Friday will relegate him to the bench for a fourth consecutive game, allowing Ben Revere to pick up another start in left field. Even if Young is able to shake off the injury and return before the All-Star break, his time as an everyday player looks to be coming to an end with Mike Trout (thumb) expected back for the start of the second half.
