Angels' Chris Young: Shifts to 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels transferred Young (hip) to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

Young was declared out for the season in early August as he will require surgery on both hips, so this was just a procedural move. It's unclear when exactly the 34-year-old will undergo the surgery, but he expects to be ready for spring training.

Angels' Chris Young: To miss remainder of 2018 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was diagnosed with labral tears in both hips, and he underwent surgery on his right hip Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Young was initially thought to be dealing a left hamstring strain, but he'll require surgery on both hips following this most recent diagnosis. He slashed .168/.252/.363 with six homers and 13 RBI through 56 games with the Angels in 2018. Young figures to be ready for the beginning of spring training.

Angels' Chris Young: Remains on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young remains out with a hamstring injury, contrary to previous reports, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The "Young" playing center field for the Angels on Wednesday is Eric Young, not Chris. Chris remains out with a hamstring injury. His return date is not clear.

Angels' Chris Young: Returns from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (hamstring) returned from the disabled list Wednesday and will bat eighth and play center field against the Rays.

Young ended up missing just shy of a month with a Grade 2 hamstring strain. Prior to the injury, the veteran was hitting a weak .168/.252/.363 through 56 games.

Angels' Chris Young: Dealing with Grade 2 hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain in his left hamstring, Maria I. Guardado of

The Angels sent Young for an MRI on Thursday, which revealed the severity of the hamstring injury that landed him on the DL earlier in the week. With this announcement, Young will likely be sidelined until after the All-Star break.

Angels' Chris Young: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was placed on the 10-day DL on Wednesday due to a left hamstring strain.

As expected, Young will head to the DL after suffering the hamstring injury during Tuesday's game. He will be eligible to return July 14, but an activation at some point after the All-Star break is probably more realistic given that manager Mike Scioscia indicated Tuesday that Young is "going to be [out] a while," per Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register. In Young's place, the Angels recalled Jabari Blash from Triple-A Salt Lake to add depth to the outfield.

Angels' Chris Young: Likely headed to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (hamstring strain) is likely headed for the disabled list, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Manager Mike Scioscia said Young is "going to be a while" so a DL stint seems guaranteed. Jabari Blash seems likely to be recalled from Triple-A to serve as the fourth outfielder in the short term.

Angels' Chris Young: Diagnosed with strained hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young suffered a left hamstring strain during Tuesday's matchup with Seattle.

Young was forced to leave the contest in the first inning after going down while attempting to field a Kyle Seager hit. It's officially been diagnosed as a strained hamstring, though additional word on a potential timetable for his return has yet to be released.

Angels' Chris Young: Sustains apparent leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young left Tuesday's game against the Mariners with an apparent leg injury, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Young went down awkwardly in right field charging a ball off the bat of Kyle Seager, and was unable to walk off the field under his own power. The specifics and severity of the injury remain unclear, and the 34-year-old should be considered day-to-day for the time being. Kole Calhoun took over in right field for the Angels.

Angels' Chris Young: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (hamstring) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

This will mark Young's first appearance since Tuesday. The 34-year-old hasn't been able to get it going this year as he's struggled to hit lefties. A career .260/.358/.464 hitter against southpaws, Young has just a .190/.261/.381 slash line with the platoon matchup in his favor this season.

Angels' Chris Young: Doesn't start, but avoids DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (hamstring) was not placed on the disabled list following his injury Tuesday, but he remained out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.

The veteran should still be considered day-to-day, but Kole Calhoun's recent surge should keep Young in a backup role once he is cleared for action. The 34-year-old was heating up prior to tweaking his hamstring, going 6-for-20 with three home runs over his previous six games, but his .184/.277/.378 overall line leaves much to be desired from a fantasy perspective without guaranteed playing time.

Angels' Chris Young: Scheduled for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (hamstring) is set to undergo an MRI on Wednesday, Avery Yang of reports.

Young was removed from Tuesday's 5-4 victory over Arizona after experiencing tightness in his hamstring while running out a grounder in the sixth inning. The MRI should provide more clarity regarding the extent of the setback, but even if Young avoids the disabled list, the Angels may still opt to recall another outfielder from the minor-league ranks on a short-term basis. Young had transitioned back to a reserve role Monday after Kole Calhoun was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list.

Angels' Chris Young: Suffers hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young exited Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks early with an apparent hamstring injury, Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Young was 1-for-3 at the plate before being lifted from the contest in the eighth inning with the hamstring injury. The severity of the setback is not yet known, but that information should become available in the coming days. The Angels are off Wednesday before opening up a four-game series against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Angels' Chris Young: Homers for second consecutive game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Sunday against the Athletics.

Young took right-hander Daniel Mengden deep in the third inning for his fifth home run of the season. It was his second homer in as many days and third in his past four starts. He has gotten more playing time thanks to the absence of Kole Calhoun but has largely struggled at the dish this season, hitting just .181/.278/.383 in 94 at-bats.

Angels' Chris Young: Launches three-run homer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Athletics.

Young connected on a Sean Manaea fastball in the fifth inning to put the Angels up 3-1, but the A's would answer with a four-run sixth inning to ultimately take home the victory. The veteran outfielder has now started three straight games in the outfield, going 4-for-11 with a pair of homers over those appearances, but he figures to head back to a reserve role once Kole Calhoun (oblique) returns from the shelf.

Angels' Chris Young: Homers in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young fell a double short of the cycle Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with a triple, a home run and three runs scored in an 8-6 loss to Seattle.

Young got the start in right field against a left-handed starter and delivered his best offensive showing in an otherwise disappointing 2018 campaign. Jabari Blash started the Halos' previous two games in right field, and while a platoon situation appears to have developed, Young's strong showing could earn the veteran a longer look until Kole Calhoun -- who began a rehab assignment Wednesday -- returns from an oblique injury.

Angels' Chris Young: Will return to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young started in right field and went 1-for-1 with a walk and a stolen base in Monday's loss to the Tigers.

The veteran outfielder started his second game in a row, but this one came at the expense of a healthy Kole Calhoun, with Justin Upton (forearm) returning to action Monday. With the Angels' outfield back at full strength, Young and his .161/.277/.304 slash line will revert to a fourth-outfielder role.

Angels' Chris Young: Replaces injured teammate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young replaced the injured Justin Upton (forearm) against the Yankees on Saturday, going 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored in the 11-4 win.

X-rays on Upton's forearm came back negative, so the Angels' starting left fielder shouldn't miss much time. If he were to be held out for any period of time, Young would likely step into the starting lineup. The 34-year-old is slashing an unsightly .151/.250/.302 in 61 plate appearances, so there wouldn't be much fantasy utility in the unlikely event Upton were to land on the disabled list.

Angels' Chris Young: Homers in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young started in left field and went 1-for-3 with his second home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

The veteran outfielder started in place of Justin Upton -- who served as the team's designated hitter Sunday -- but it is important to note that a struggling Kole Calhoun was benched for a second straight game even with a right-handed starter on the mound. This may have been manager Mike Scioscia giving his struggling starter a mental break prior to Monday's off day, but Young or the recently recalled Jabari Blash would stand to gain the most playing time if this is indeed a benching.

Angels' Chris Young: Struggling in reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young started in right field and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees.

Young has struggled with his new club, slashing .148/.207/.296 in 29 plate appearances. All three of the Angels' starting outfielders are platoon-proof, which has limited the veteran to rest days and the rare start at designated hitter against southpaws.
