Alex Young lasts 2 2/3 innings versus Mets

Alex Young took the loss on Thursday against the Mets, giving up six runs (but just one earned) on five hits over 2 2/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

The lefty allowed two homers, struck out three, and walked two. A Nick Ahmed error basically saved his ERA but Young has now allowed three earned runs or less in five straight starts. He'll carry a 3.38 ERA into a matchup with the Marlins next time out.

Alex Young gives up two runs versus Dodgers

Alex Young received a no-decision on Sunday against the Dodgers, giving up two runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Overall Young pitched pretty well in a tough matchup, striking out five without walking anyone. The lefty continues to surprise this year, posting a 3.84 ERA through 11 starts. He'll be a deep-league streaming option this weekend versus the Reds.

Alex Young earns sixth win on Monday night

Alex Young improved to 6-3 on Monday in San Francisco, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits over 5 1/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Young struck out four and walked two as Arizona went on to win 6-4. The 25-year-old has been solid with the Diamondbacks this year, posting a 3.81 ERA through 11 appearances. However, he doesn't strike out enough batter to be very fantasy relevant. Fantasy players should avoid Young in his next outing against the Dodgers.

Alex Young throws a quality start versus Rockies

Alex Young improved to 5-3 on Tuesday versus Colorado, allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings pitched to also earn a quality start.

Fantasy Impact

Young struck out four and walked one in the outing, which Arizona went on to win 8-7. The 25-year-old now owns a 4.04 ERA this season and has some streaming potential next time out versus the Giants.

Alex Young struggles again on Thursday

Alex Young took the loss on Thursday versus the Giants, surrendering five runs on eight hits over five innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Young struggled right away in this one and then settled down a bit before giving up three runs in the fifth. He has now given up nine runs over his past two starts and should be left on the waiver wire for his next start against the Rockies.
