Latest Update Eric Young Jr. went 3-for-3 with a triple and a RBI in the Mets win over the the Rockies on Wednesday at Citi Field. Wed Sep, 10, 10:31 PM
Is lightning fast and extremely aggressive as a base-stealer. Is also patient at the plate and knows how to get on base. Displays some pop in his bat. Is versatile enough to play several different positions.
Flaws: : Strikes out too much for someone with his speed. Therefore, he'd benefit a lot by making more contact. Can lose his focus at times. Would benefit by developing his situational hitting to drive in more runs.
Young has stolen bases at an effective rate for the season as he is close to 30 for the year, however, he can't steal bases if he can't get on base. He has an average in the mid .220s and he should not be owned in fantasy leagues.Analyst: Colby Conway
Despite batting only .232 on the season, Young has managed to stay fantasy relevant with his speed on the base paths. He has now converted 26 of 30 stolen base opportunities over 66 games played, which ranks him sixth in all of baseball in that category. Just don't expect much production aside from that one area of his game. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Young has found himself as part of a platoon in the Mets outfield these days which has limited his at bats but on nights when he is in the lineup his threat to steal is very real given his 25 stolen bases over the 64 games he has played this season.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
