Chris Young left Monday's game against the Mariners in the eighth inning due to a left calf cramp.

Chris Young went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Athletics.

Following up Tuesday's two-homer performance, Young attempted to help the Mets come back in the ballgame, taking Luke Gregerson deep to left field to cut the Athletics' lead to 8-5. Young now has seven home runs and 21 RBI on the season along with a .210/.292/.366 slash line.

Chris Young went 2-for-3 with a walk and a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's win over the Athletics.

Young, entering the game with a .596 OPS, broke out amid rumors his time with the Mets was drawing to a close. His first homer came in the second inning off of Scott Kazmir, and other other in the fifth inning off of Jim Johnson. He hadn't homered since May 28 prior to the match-up. Young now carries a marginally more respectable .209/.293/.352 slash line with six home runs, 19 RBI, and seven stolen bases.

A Mets official told Mike Puma of the New York Post that the Mets are not considering dumping Chris Young.

That conflicts a report from ESPN New York, who wrote Monday morning that Young might be released this week to clear a roster spot for Juan Lagares, who is set to return from an intercostal injury on Thursday. Young, 30, is batting just .201/.284/.313 in 58 games this season for the Mets. He's making $7.25 million on a one-year contract.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets might cut ties with Chris Young this week.

Juan Lagares (intercostal) is due back from the disabled list Thursday and the Mets need to open up a roster spot. Young, 30, has batted just .201/.284/.313 in 58 games this season and there's been no indication that a sudden turnaround is coming. The Mets would have to eat what remains of his one-year, $7.25 million contract.

Chris Young is out of the Mets lineup Saturday after Friday's 14th-inning drop that led to a loss to the Phillies.

Bobby Abreu is getting another start in the outfield. Young's drop was bad, but it's not like it's typical for him. If he starts sitting more frequently, it will be his bat -- not his glove -- that's the culprit.

Chris Young went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

Young had been in the dregs offensively, as his OPS plummeted ever closer to the .500's as the month of May has worn on, so Thursday's homer was a good sign. The fourth inning blast off of David Buchanan was his fourth of the season and leaves him with a .205/.290/.368 slash line.

Chris Young went 0-for-3 while grounding into two double plays in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

He didn't get a fourth at-bat, as Young was pinch-hit for with the game on the line in the eighth inning. The free agent acquisition is now batting .204/.283/.352 for the season and an even uglier .140/.232/.260 over his last 16 games. The Mets' $7.25 million investment obviously isn't paying off so far.

Chris Young went 2-for-4 with an RBI, run scored and stolen base against the Rockies on Sunday.

Young had one of the Mets' five doubles on the day. Injuries kept him out of the lineup for much of April after he sustained a quad strain in his first start of the season, but Young has hit in six straight games to raise his average to .273. He's 9-for-22 with eight runs scored, six RBI and two stolen bases in that span.
