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

The infielder went 2-for-7 with the big-league club after being called up June 29.

Given his decent numbers, Young may earn additional opportunities with the Diamondbacks later this season.
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.

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

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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