Latest Update Chris Young left Monday's game due to a leg cramp Tue Jul, 22, 01:38 AM
Is an incredible athlete with an impressive combination of speed and power. Consistently cranks out doubles when he's on his game. Has a lot of range in the outfield and can play all three positions.
Flaws: : Strikes out far too much and has some major holes in his swing (contributing to low batting averages). Doesn't get on base enough to make great use of his speed. Needs work on his consistency. Struggles against righties.
Young said he first felt his calf cramp up when he left the batter's box running out a ground out at the end of the eighth inning. He added that he is hopeful he will be able to play on Tuesday, but fantasy owners should be encouraging he and his .202 season average to take off as much time as they need as it would benefit them to see Eric Young Jr. get more regular playing time, which could occur if Young were to miss any amount of time, but for now he is listed as day-to-day with an outside chance he plays Tuesday.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Young has now homered in back-to-back games and it could not have come at a better time for the Mets outfielder. With the team contemplating the release of the struggling slugger, his most recent production should at least silence the team's most recent plan until he reverts back to his old ways.

Young joined teammate Bartolo Colon in destroying his old team as he posted a rare two-home run game and helped chase A's starter Scott Kazmir after three innings. But while the overall night was impressive, Youn gis still slashing .209/.293/.352 with six home runs, 19 RBI and seven stolen bases in 182 at-bats.Analyst: Howard Bender
Young is batting a mere .201 with four home runs and 17 RBI through his first 179 at-bats, failing to impress the team in his first year with the Mets. If he eventually finds himself unemployed, expect another team to give he a shot, considering he holds a power/speed combo that is above average when he is actually performing at his best.
