Top Alex Young News

  • Reds' Alex Young: Added to roster

    The Reds selected Young's contract from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday.

    Young inked a minor-league contract with the Reds in January and wound up claiming a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. He figures to operate in a mop-up type of role.

  • Reds' Alex Young: Signs NRI with Reds

    Young signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Tuesday.

    The deal includes an invitation to major-league spring training. Young appeared in 24 games with the Giants last year, and registered a 2.39 ERA with a 20:11 K:BB ratio over 26.1 innings pitched. He'll have a chance to win a spot in the Cincinnati bullpen with a good showing in the Cactus League, but he shouldn't be on a fantasy radar to begin 2023.

  • Alex Young: Non-tendered by San Francisco

    The Giants declined to tender Young a contract for 2023.

    Young opened eyes with his performance as a rookie with Arizona in 2019 (3.56 ERA, 1.19 WHIP over 83.1 innings), but it's been mostly downhill since. To his credit, the left-hander put up a 2.39 ERA in 24 appearances with the Giants after joining the team via trade in July, though the front office clearly wasn't buying it.

  • Giants' Alex Young: Picks up win

    Young (1-1) earned the win Friday by retiring the only batter he faced.

    Young got the last out of the eighth inning in a 5-5 game, and the Giants pulled ahead in the top of the ninth to put him in line for the win. The southpaw has endured a rough September, allowing five runs (two earned) across 8.2 innings while adding two holds. He has a 2.53 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 17:10 K:BB through 21.1 innings between the Giants and the Guardians this year while adding five holds and a blown save.

  • Giants' Alex Young: Takes loss as opener

    Young (0-1) took the loss in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader, allowing three runs (one earned) on a hit and two walks over two-thirds of an inning.

    An Evan Longoria error allowed the Brewers to build a first-inning rally against Young before Sean Hjelle got the final out of the frame. Young had pitched 3.2 scoreless innings over his last five appearances prior to this rough outing. He now has a 2.87 ERA, 1.72 WHIP, 14:9 K:BB and five holds through 18 appearances covering 15.2 innings between the Giants and the Guardians this year.

  • Giants' Alex Young: Starting nightcap

    Young will start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Brewers, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Young's first 17 major-league appearances of the season have come out of the bullpen, and he's posted a 2.40 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 15 innings. He'll likely serve as an opener for Thursday's nightcap since he doesn't tend to last very long in his relief outings. Sean Hjelle should be available to serve as a bulk reliever after he was called up as the 29th man for the twin bill.

  • Giants' Alex Young: Logs fifth hold

    Young struck out two in a perfect inning, earning a hold in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Phillies.

    Young has made 15 of his 16 appearances this year for San Francisco. He's pitched to a 2.51 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB across 14.1 innings with five holds and a blown save. He's been better recently with two holds and three scoreless innings across his last four outings, which suggests he's working up the bullpen hierarchy for the Giants. He's still more of a middle reliever, though the lack of solid relief pitching for the team could allow him to function as part of a setup bridge to closer Camilo Doval over the last month of the campaign.

  • Giants' Alex Young: Recalled from Triple-A

    Young was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

    Young was acquired from the Guardians in mid-July, and he is set to see his first big-league action since joining the Giants. He figures to work in low-leverage spots out of the bullpen.

  • Giants' Alex Young: Traded to Giants

    The Giants acquired Young from the Guardians on Monday in exchange for cash considerations, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    After he was designated for assignment Thursday, Young will head to a new home after he was dealt to the Giants on Monday. He will report to Triple-A Sacramento when he joins the organization. The reliever has a 3.77 ERA this season while pitching in Triple-A and could find himself with the Giants in the coming months.

  • Guardians' Alex Young: DFA'd Thursday

    The Guardians designated Young for assignment Thursday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Young will now be placed on waivers, and if he goes unclaimed, he'll remain with Triple-A Columbus. The left-hander has produced a 3.77 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with 46 strikeouts over 31 frames in 29 appearances this year with Columbus.

  • Guardians' Alex Young: Optioned to Triple-A

    Young was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Young joined the Guardians on Sunday and made his first big-league appearance of the season Monday. He tossed only six pitches and did not allow a run, but Cleveland still decided to send him down and replace him in the bullpen with Nick Sandlin.

  • Guardians' Alex Young: Called up from Triple-A

    The Guardians selected Young's contract from Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

    Cleveland made a series of roster moves Sunday morning, adding a couple fresh arms in Young and James Karinchak following Saturday's doubleheader. Young, a 28-year-old lefty, owns a 4.90 career ERA in the big leagues, but he has pitched well out of the bullpen for Columbus this season (3.14 ERA in 27 appearances).

  • Guardians' Alex Young: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Young cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

    Young was cast off Cleveland's 40-man roster last week but went unclaimed on waivers and will remain in the organization. It wouldn't be surprising to see him serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training after he made 40 appearances (two starts) in the majors last year.

  • Guardians' Alex Young: Designated for assignment

    Young was designated for assignment by Cleveland on Friday.

    Young made 40 appearances (two starts) with Arizona and Cleveland during the 2021 campaign. He posted a 6.58 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 52 innings and will now lose his place on the 40-man roster.

  • Indians' Alex Young: Sent down Friday

  • Indians' Alex Young: Inconsistent lately

    Young has allowed four runs in his last five innings.

    In his last six appearances, Young has alternated between giving up runs and scoreless efforts. He's given up nine hits and five walks while striking out just two in the aforementioned stretch. For the year, the southpaw has a 6.58 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 43:27 K:BB across 52 innings between Cleveland and Arizona, almost exclusively as a low-leverage reliever.

  • Indians' Alex Young: Collects hold

    Young pitched a perfect inning and struck out one to earn a hold in Friday's 4-3 loss to Boston.

    The southpaw protected a two-run lead in the seventh inning before James Karinchak melted down in the eighth. The hold was Young's first with Cleveland and his fourth overall through 34 appearances. He's added a 6.51 ERA, 1.66 WHIP, 41:22 K:BB, two blown saves and a 2-6 record across 47 innings this season. Young will likely continue to see mainly low-leverage work to finish the year.

  • Indians' Alex Young: Receives call-up

    Young was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Young has a 5.59 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB across 9.2 innings at the Triple-A level this season, split between Reno and Columbus. He also struggled to a 6.26 ERA and 1.68 WHIP across 41.2 innings with Arizona. Young was called up to replace Nick Sandlin, who was placed on the injured list Thursday with a shoulder strain.
