Alex Young goes five innings in no-decision Wednesday

Alex Young allowed three runs on six hits and one walk across five innings against the Rangers on Wednesday. He struck out five.

Fantasy Impact

Young has done a decent job as a fill-in starter for the Diamondbacks this season, posting a 5.44 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 46.1 innings (seven starts). The young lefty likely doesn't have any long-term appeal in fantasy. He may get one more start in 2020 before the end of the regular season.

Alex Young suffers fourth loss Thursday

Alex Young (2-4) took the loss Thursday against the Angels. He allowed six runs on eight hits and one walk in 2.2 innings. He struck out one.

Fantasy Impact

It was definitely a clunker for Young on Thursday, who was assumed to be phased out of the rotation with the returns of Caleb Smith and Madison Bumgarner. In 41.1 innings this season, Young has a 5.44 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with 34 strikeouts. It remains to be seen if he'll stick in the rotation, or serve a long-relief role out of the bullpen.

Alex Young stuck with third loss Sunday

Alex Young (1-3) was charged with the loss Sunday against the Giants. He allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out three over 5.1 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Young was maintaining the Diamondbacks' two-run lead through five innings, but ultimately allowed three to put him on the hook for the loss. In 23.2 innings as a starter, Young has received just six runs of support. Young's next start should come next weekend against the Mariners.

Alex Young stuck with loss Tuesday

Alex Young (1-2) allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits and five walks across five innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday. He struck out four.

Fantasy Impact

Young was a bit too wild on Tuesday night. Young has amassed a 4.50 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 28 strikeouts through 28 innings this season. He has shown improved control, but that eluded him Tuesday. He'll look to regain form Sunday in San Francisco.

Alex Young takes no-decision Tuesday

Alex Young allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five against the Rockies on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Young made his third start in place on Madison Bumgarner and eclipsed five innings for the first time. With Bumgarner expected back soon, it was seeming that Young was bound for the bullpen again. However with Merrill Kelly (shoulder) injured, Young may stick in the rotation for now. If so, he'll take on the Giants next on Sunday.
