Latest Update Eric Young Jr. swipes 26th bag Wednesday   Thu Jul, 24, 06:45 AM

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

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   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 a bit too much for someone with his speed. Still honing his skills as a baserunner, he can lose concentration at times. Would benefit by developing his situational hitting to drive in more runs.

    Eric Young Jr. stole 2 more bags Sunday
  • EYJr is hitting .274 (17-for-62) having reached base safely in 15 of 20 games since returning from the disabled list back on June 16th. The multi-steal game on Sunday was his sixth on the year giving him 25 in 28 attempts in just 62 games. Even though he is not always in the starting lineup the speedy outfielder is worth owing in most all formats for his stolen base and runs scored upside alone.Analyst: Michael Pichan
