Young went 2-for-4 with a double and clutch three-run homer in Thursday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay.

Young won the game off of closer Jake McGee in the bottom of the ninth inning with his second homer in as many days. Young might see a lot of playing time in left field down the stretch, as Brett Gardner might have to be shut down with an abdominal strain.

Young is in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Rays, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Young will start in left field for the second game in a row, filling in for Brett Gardner who's sitting out with an abdominal strain. The Yankees fear that Gardner may miss the rest of the season, and for now it appears Young will be his primary replacement.

The Yankees selected Young's contract Tuesday.

Due to a .205/.283/.346 line in 254 at-bats with the Mets before inking a minor league deal with the Yankees, Young's new squad likely desires his glove more than anything. As such, he may be mostly contained to late inning defensive switches, with the occasional start to provide a day of rest.

Young is out of the Mets' lineup again Friday, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Make it three straight days on the bench for Young, who started nine times in a 10-game stretch from July 26 to Aug. 5. Kirk Nieuwenhuis will draw the start in left Friday, and it seems manager Terry Collins will alternate between Young, Nieuwenhuis and Eric Young Jr at the position moving forward.

Young is out of the Mets' lineup again Thursday, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

Young will sit for a second straight day after a stretch of nine starts in 10 games for the Mets. Eric Young Jr. will man left field and bat ninth against right-hander Jordan Zimmermann, but Young still seems like the slight favorite for playing time at the position.
