Young (4-1) returned from a back injury and took the loss in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Pirates. He allowed two runs on one hit and one walk.
Young, who was removed from his previous outing due to back spasms, was part of a bullpen breakdown that began with Lucas Sims, who had walked a two batters including one that scored on a home run Young allowed. The Reds bullpen has come under scrutiny recently; Cincinnati relievers have a combined 5.68 ERA (26th in MLB) in 50.2 innings (fifth most) over the last 14 days.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Alex Young: Battling back spasms
Young was removed in the eighth inning of his relief appearance in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Nationals due to back spasms, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Young faced three batters, striking out one and allowing one run on one hit and one walk in the 16-pitch appearance. The Reds will likely wait a day or two and see how he recovers from the back issue before determining whether or not Young requires a stint on the 15-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Alex Young: Pulled from appearance with injury
Young was removed in the eighth inning of Sunday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Young entered the contest in the top of the eighth and was expected to work for the entire inning, but he was pulled from the contest after issuing a leadoff walk and then striking out a batter. He appeared to suffer an injury on his final pitch of the day, but the Reds haven't provided a diagnosis yet.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Alex Young: Rescues Reds
Young allowed one hit and struck out one over one inning to earn a hold in Friday's 6-5 win over the Dodgers.
Situations don't get much more high leverage than the seventh-inning spot in which manager David Bell called for the left-handed Young. The Dodgers had plated three runs, cutting Cincinnati's lead to 6-5, and the bases were loaded with lefty-hitting Max Muncy due up. Young induced a flyout, then got two more outs in the eighth before closer Alexis Diaz finished it off. The only lefty in the Reds' bullpen, Young has not allowed a run over his last 14 appearances and sports a 2.20 ERA for the season. The 29-year-old journeyman reliever has embraced a new changeup grip this season, per Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer, which helped make him a trusted bullpen arm. That's the pitch he throws most often at 37.5 percent, and opponents are batting just .159 against it.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Alex Young: Scoreless stretch continues
Young retired the lone batter faced in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Brewers.
Young finished off the seventh inning after starter Ben Lively ceded a two-run home run to Tyrone Taylor. Finishing off innings is Young's job, and he's been executing well of late. The left-hander has not allowed a run in 13 outings (8.2 innings), and owns a 1.50 ERA over the last 32 appearances (24 innings). For the season, Young has a 2.25 ERA with 38 strikeouts and 15 walks over 40 innings.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Alex Young: Earns first save of season
Young picked up the save in Sunday's 9-7 victory over the Astros, allowing one unearned run on one hit over one inning. He struck out one and didn't record a walk.
Young got the call in the bottom of the 10th after the Reds struck for three runs in the top half of the inning. It was a surprising decision, given Young hasn't been a late-inning option this season, but the top guys in the Reds' bullpen were presumably unavailable after pitching numerous times during Cincinnati's recent win streak. Overall, Young has been solid, posting a 2.83 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB across 30 appearances (28.2 innings), but fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to get regular save chances moving forward....

Reds' Alex Young: Added to roster

Young inked a minor-league contract with the Reds in January and wound up claiming a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. He figures to operate in a mop-up type of role.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Alex Young: Signs NRI with Reds
Young signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Tuesday.
The deal includes an invitation to major-league spring training. Young appeared in 24 games with the Giants last year, and registered a 2.39 ERA with a 20:11 K:BB ratio over 26.1 innings pitched. He'll have a chance to win a spot in the Cincinnati bullpen with a good showing in the Cactus League, but he shouldn't be on a fantasy radar to begin 2023.... See More ... See Less
Alex Young: Non-tendered by San Francisco
The Giants declined to tender Young a contract for 2023.
Young opened eyes with his performance as a rookie with Arizona in 2019 (3.56 ERA, 1.19 WHIP over 83.1 innings), but it's been mostly downhill since. To his credit, the left-hander put up a 2.39 ERA in 24 appearances with the Giants after joining the team via trade in July, though the front office clearly wasn't buying it.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Young: Picks up win
Young (1-1) earned the win Friday by retiring the only batter he faced.
Young got the last out of the eighth inning in a 5-5 game, and the Giants pulled ahead in the top of the ninth to put him in line for the win. The southpaw has endured a rough September, allowing five runs (two earned) across 8.2 innings while adding two holds. He has a 2.53 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 17:10 K:BB through 21.1 innings between the Giants and the Guardians this year while adding five holds and a blown save.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Young: Takes loss as opener
Young (0-1) took the loss in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader, allowing three runs (one earned) on a hit and two walks over two-thirds of an inning.
An Evan Longoria error allowed the Brewers to build a first-inning rally against Young before Sean Hjelle got the final out of the frame. Young had pitched 3.2 scoreless innings over his last five appearances prior to this rough outing. He now has a 2.87 ERA, 1.72 WHIP, 14:9 K:BB and five holds through 18 appearances covering 15.2 innings between the Giants and the Guardians this year.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Young: Starting nightcap
Young will start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Brewers, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Young's first 17 major-league appearances of the season have come out of the bullpen, and he's posted a 2.40 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 15 innings. He'll likely serve as an opener for Thursday's nightcap since he doesn't tend to last very long in his relief outings. Sean Hjelle should be available to serve as a bulk reliever after he was called up as the 29th man for the twin bill.... See More ... See Less
