Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Young hasn't filled a regular role for the Diamondbacks this season, though he does own a strong .924 OPS in a small sample of 67 plate appearances. He owns a 49.3 percent strikeout rate, however, so it's no surprise that he hasn't earned more opportunities. Ketel Marte (hamstring) was activated off the injured list in a corresponding move.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Tallies sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young hit a two-run pinch-hit home run Saturday against the Cubs.

Young entered the game as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and delivered a home run to give the Diamondbacks insurance on their lead. He now has six homers on the season but has served almost exclusively as a pinch hitter during his time in the majors. In 58 plate appearances, Young has maintained a .224/.345/.653 line but is also striking out at 46.6 percent rate.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Rockets fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a strikeout in a 22-1 loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

Young entered in the fifth and homered in the eighth to give Arizona some dignity with its only run of the game. The second baseman has gone back and forth between Arizona and Reno all season but is slashing an palatable .233/.353/.651 in 35 games, mostly off the bench.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Recalled Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was recalled from Triple-A Reno prior to Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Young will rejoin the big club just two days after being sent back to Reno. He is not in the starting lineup Saturday against Los Angeles and he figures to resume serving in a reserve utility role going forward.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Sent down Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks optioned Young to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

The infielder went 2-for-7 with the big-league club after being called up June 29. Young has logged 49 total plate appearances with Arizona this season, getting on base at a .347 rate and hitting four home runs. Given his decent numbers, Young may earn additional opportunities with the Diamondbacks later this season.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Called up Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was recalled from Triple-A Reno prior to Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

This will mark Young's third stint with the big club this season. The infielder slashed .206/.357/.588 with four homers and nine RBI in 42 previous at-bats with the big-league club. He figures to serve in a utility role once again this time around. Pitcher Alex Young was optioned to Reno in a corresponding roster move.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

The 27-year-old is hitless in 16 at-bats over his past 10 appearances, and he'll head to Triple-A with Christian Walker (oblique) returning from the injured list. Young has a .206/.357/.588 slash line with four home runs in 42 plate appearances this season.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Double, RBI in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young started at second base and went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 17-2 loss to the Nationals.

Young, who has primarily been used as a pinch hitter, made his second consecutive start at second base. There should be a rotation of players at second after the Diamondbacks placed Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) on the injured list Friday. Young and Josh Rojas will be the top contenders for at-bats at the keystone.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Belts fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young hit a solo home run in his only plate appearance during Wednesday's loss to the Marlins.

Young was recalled from the minors earlier in the day and immediately made an impact upon his return to the big club, crushing a 442-foot solo shot to left field in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has four hits on the campaign -- all of which have left the yard. He hit 29 homers across two minor-league levels in 2019, so he certainly has pop in his bat, but it remains to be seen if he'll be given enough playing time with Arizona to be worthy of fantasy consideration.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Recalled by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was recalled Wednesday from Triple-A Reno.

The second baseman impressed during his first stint on the big-league roster in 2021, albeit in a small sample size, as he hit three homers in 12 at-bats. Young fills the roster spot of Christian Walker (oblique), who was placed on the injured list Wednesday.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

Young owns a remarkable 1.904 OPS, though that came in just 14 plate appearances. He went 3-for-12, with all three of his hits clearing the fence, but the Diamondbacks no longer need him to fill a utility role with Tim Locastro returning from a dislocated finger.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Homers in loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in the 14-6 loss to the Rockies on Saturday.

Young made a pinch-hit appearance in the sixth inning and delivered a two-out home run off Austin Gomber. This was Young's third home run of the season. The 27-year-old has received limited opportunities coming off the bench.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Cranks grand slam in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 1-for-2 with a grand slam in the 11-6 win Thursday against the Nationals.

Young was called up to replace Christian Walker (oblique) on the active roster. The 26-year-old took full advantage of his start by hitting a grand slam in the second inning off Patrick Corbin. He'll operate as a utility player, getting spot starts when others need a routine day off.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Recalled from alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was recalled from the Diamondbacks' alternate training site Monday.

With Christian Walker (oblique) landing on the injured list, Young will return for his second stint with the big-league team this season. The 26-year-old Young can play pretty much everywhere and he's more than held his own at the upper levels of the minors, but to date the Diamondbacks haven't seemed interested in giving him a look in anything more than a utility role.

April 10, 2021 04:40 PM
Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was optioned to Arizona's alternate training site Friday.

This is the corresponding move for Kole Calhoun (knee) getting activated from the injured list. Young will continue to serve as organizational infield depth going forward.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Called up from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

The Diamondbacks need an extra bat after Ketel Marte was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring. Young doesn't project as much more than a bench bat and may not start very many games during his time with the team, though he hit a strong .271/.368/.535 across the two highest levels of the minors in 2019. He hit a modest .192/.382/.385 in his 12-game big-league debut last season.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

The 26-year-old was competing for a spot on the Opening Day roster in a utility role, but he'll open the season in the minors. Young made his big-league debut for the Diamondbacks last season and had a .192/.382/.385 slash line with one homer and four RBI in 34 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks' Andy Young: Healthy after September surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (hand) is starting in left field and batting seventh in Monday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

After serving as a backup designated hitter and striking out in his lone plate appearance in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Rockies, Young will now pick up his first start of the spring. His inclusion in the lineup is an indiction that he's made a full recovery from the surgery he required last September to remove the hamate bone from his hand. The 26-year-old got the chance to make his big-league debut in 2020, seeing action in 12 games while slashing .192/.382/.385 over 34 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks' Andy Young: Undergoes hamate surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is out for the year after undergoing surgery to remove his hamate bone Friday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Young required the surgery after getting struck in the hand by a pitch at Arizona's alternate training site. He should have time to heal before the start of the 2021 season.

Diamondbacks' Andy Young: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was optioned to Arizona's alternate training site Saturday.

Young has played sporadically for the Diamondbacks this season, hitting .192/.382/.385 over 12 games. He'll make way on the active roster for Madison Bumgarner, who is set to return from a back injury.
