Latest Update Chris Young doubled for the 4th time in two games Mon Jul, 28, 12:59 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 doubled for the fourth consecutive at-bat, spanning two games, to give him 12 on the year. As cute as that is, this acclaimed sleeper, by many who must not of watched this guy play over the past few years, is not enough to warrant owning the .207 hitter who has just eight home runs on the year.Analyst: Michael Pichan
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
