Young is not in Friday's lineup for the series opener against Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Young takes a seat Friday after starting the past three games in the outfield. In his place, Ben Revere will man left field and bat seventh against right-hander Rick Porcello. Young is likely to be back in the lineup Saturday.

Young is starting in left and batting ninth Wednesday against the Yankees, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Young took a seat Sunday before returning to the lineup Tuesday (0-for-4 with a run scored). He has taken over as the Angels' starting left fielder with a .303/.395/.485 slash line over 21 games. The speedy outfielder should continue to see regular at-bats until he either cools off or when Mike Trout (thumb) returns.

Young is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Young will hit the bench for the second time in the series, but since he's still maintaining a .408 on-base percentage since being promoted to the big club, his hold on an everyday role appears likely to remain fairly secure so long as Mike Trout (thumb) remains out. Ben Revere will fill in for Young in left field Sunday.

Young is not in the lineup Friday against the Royals, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Young has been a bright spot in an otherwise forgettable stretch for the Angels, although he'll hit the bench for a night off on the heels of an 0-for-3 showing. Ben Revere will pick up a start in left field in his stead.

Young went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk and two RBI in Tuesday's 11-inning win over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

First he tied the game with his solo shot in the eighth, then he won it in walkoff style with his 11th-inning infield single. Young's been a revelation since being recalled, hitting .314 with three homers, five steals, nine RBI and 13 runs in 15 games, but it's well worth noting that we're talking about a well-traveled 32-year-old who barely sniffed the majors last season. The league will adjust, and Young's production will most likely dry up accordingly. Still, it doesn't hurt to pick him up in deeper formats while he's running hot.

Young went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, four RBI and a stolen base during Sunday's win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has been solid since being recalled to the Angels with a .934 OPS, two homers, seven RBI, four stolen bases and 11 runs through just 13 games. He's definitely on the fantasy radar in deeper settings, and his speed is a legitimate weapon on the base paths. Young posted an impressive .947 OPS with Triple-A Salt Lake before being recalled to the majors, too.

Young went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and three runs scored during Thursday's win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Young has made the most of his opportunity in the majors this season with a .333/.436/.515 slash line through 39 plate appearances. The veteran posted a .947 OPS with Triple-A Salt Lake before joining the Angels, and he still has the wheels to help in the stolen bases column. He's receiving full-time at-bats since being recalled to the majors and is a potential add candidate, especially if you're in need of steals.

Young was 0-for-4 with a strikeout Thursday during the Angels' 4-2 loss to the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

After Mike Trout (thumb) was placed on the disabled list, Young was called up and he has made the most of his opportunity. He has started four consecutive days, and despite a hitless night Thursday, he entered that game 5-for-11 with a walk in 12 plate appearances. For the time being, it appears he will see a decent chunk of playing time in Trout's absence.

Young went 2-for-2 with a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning of Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder has hit the ground running since getting the call to the majors Monday, collecting five hits, a homer and two steals in three starts. It appears that Young has earned a regular spot in the outfield and could continue to see time until Mike Trout (thumb) returns in 6-8 weeks, giving him value as a source for stolen bases.

Young started in left field Monday, going 1-for-4 with two stolen bases in a loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The speedy outfielder got the call to the majors to replace Mike Trout (thumb), and he was immediately inserted in the starting lineup. The veteran's primary asset is his blazing speed, and he put that on display Monday. It was unclear if Young or Ben Revere would see that bulk of playing time in Trout's stead, but based off of manager Mike Scioscia's starting lineup against a righty, the former appears to have a taken an early lead. The 32-year-old is worth a speculative add for owners hurting for steals.
