Young is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, according to Newsday's Erik Boland.

Young went just 2-for-20 (.100) over his last five games, so manager Joe Girardi decided to give him the day off Saturday. Ramon Flores will jump into the lineup in Young's place.

Young homered for the second straight game Saturday, going 1-for-3 with three runs scored and two RBI.

That gives Young 10 home runs on the season, to go along with a respectable .272 batting average. Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is close to beginning a rehab assignment, but even after he returns to the lineup, Young is playing well enough to earn at least semi-regular at-bats.

Young went 3-for-4 with the game-winning three-run homer in Friday's win over the Astros.

The home run was the only source of run production for the Yankees all night, but it was enough as they held on for the 3-2 victory. In the wake of multiple injuries to the Yankee outfield, Young has been seeing regular playing time of late and has taken advantage, going 9-for-17 with five RBI in his last four starts.

Young went 3-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and two runs Saturday against the Tigers.

Young was terrifically productive out of the nine-hole in this one, but that's still not a fantasy-friendly batting position. However, he's spent minimal time batting ninth this year, so he could move back up toward the middle of the lineup. He's provided surprising power for the Yankees even though his batting average is lingering at .243 and his OBP is a hideous .289, but Young's playing time has become increasingly sporadic.

Young is back in the lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

Young was bumped from the lineup Friday for Mason Williams. For daily games formats, it's important to note that Young is batting ninth in the lineup and is facing a right handed starter in Alfredo Simon. Young is slashing just .162/.195/.311 against right handed starters on the season.

Young is out of the lineup Friday, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

Prospect Mason Williams was recently called up, and he will likely be cutting into Young's playing time a bit going forward. Young should still get a handful of starts, but he will only be useful in deeper leagues.

Young went 1-for-5 with an RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

With Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) heading to the disabled list, Young figures to be in line to step in and serve as an everyday option in the outfield. The team recalled lefty Slade Heathcott to fill the roster spot, but Young figures to draw the start most nights even against right-handed pitching with Ellsbury on the shelf.

Young went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

Young got off to a fast start to the season, but he's now 0-for-11 in his last 11 at bats, and is hitting just .185 in the month of May. He'll likely continue to get regular at bats against left-handed pitching, but he's slowed down from his hot April in which he hit .305 with five home runs.

Young is in the lineup for Thursday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Carlos Beltran was given the day off, so Young will enter the lineup in right field and bat sixth against right-hander Erasmo Ramirez.
