Latest Update Yankees and Chris Young have agreed to a deal for one year, $2.5 million. Sat Nov, 08, 09:51 PM
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 is a career .234 hitter, but somehow managed to hit .282 with three home runs over 25 games while with the Yankees during the latter part of 2014. He will serve as their fourth outfielder behind Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Carlos Beltran next season.Analyst: Howard Bender
That noise you just heard was the collective groan of Yankees fans everywhere as Young is probably one of the last players they want to see working as a fourth outfielder for them. He's got a career slash line of .234/.313/.427 and has a laundry list of injuries which he's dealt with over the last few seasons. Maybe he's worth using as a short-term plug-and-play, but he's not someone you seek out for your fantasy squad.Analyst: Howard Bender
Young has been huge for the Yankees since being acquired by them, and almost won the game with an extra-inning home run before the Yankee blew the lead in the bottom of the 11th. Young has hit a home run in three of his last four games, hitting .474 with eight RBI's. He'll continue to get starts while he is white-hot at the plate. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Young hit a game winning walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth to secure a Yankees victory. Since coming over from the Mets, Young is batting .500 for the Yankees. He should see consistent at-bats going forward.Analyst: David Kerr
