Alex Young struggles Friday

Alex Young allowed two runs on three hits while striking out two in one inning of work in Cleveland's 3-2 win over the Reds on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

The 28-year-old came to the Guardians in 2021, where he boasted a 7.84 ERA in 10.1 innings pitched. He struggled mightily on Friday in just one inning of work, and he will not be on the fantasy radar in 2022.

Alex Young surrenders five runs in loss to the Dodgers

LHP Alex Young took the loss on Sunday when he allowed five runs on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts as the D-Backs lost to the Dodgers again by a score of 9-8.

Fantasy Impact

Young made it through the first two innings unscathed but completely fell apart in the third inning. Justin Turner knocked an RBI single before Albert Pujols smashed a three-run dinger. Steven Souza Jr. then smacked an RBI triple to account for the fifth and final run that Young allowed. The 27-year-old now owns a 4.79 ERA, 1.51 WHIP, and 35:18 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 innings on the year. He's not on the fantasy radar whatsoever.

Alex Young gives up three runs in no-decision

LHP Alex Young took a no-decision on Tuesday when he allowed three runs on five hits with one walk and two strikeouts across four innings as the Diamondbacks lost to the Giants 9-8.

Fantasy Impact

Young was making his first start of the season and pitched well enough to keep Arizona in the game. He allowed all three of his runs in the second inning with a Steven Duggar two-run blast accounting for most of the damage. The 27-year-old southpaw now owns a 3.86 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 32:16 K/BB ratio over 32 2/3 innings (27 appearances, one start). He would face the Dodgers on Sunday at home if he's given another start.

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.
