ERIC YOUNG JR. RUMORS

Tejada, Brown and Young Jr. May Be Non-Tendered

According to a report from Adam Rubin (ESPN), Sandy Alderson spoke about the future of the 40-man roster on Monday. His conclusion is that the GM cannot protect all of the players he’d like to because he needs to add several prospects to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft. Prospects that are not protected (on the 40-man) can be claimed by other teams in the Rule 5 draft. Those...

WATCH: Asdrubal Cabrera throw a bullet to get Young Jr. out

It always seems like the Nationals have the most talented infield in all of baseball. Even though I am bias about the Nats, the stats show that it is true. Last night in the sixth inning, Tanner Roark bounced a throw to first base, which allowed the speedy Eric Young Jr to pass second base and go to third. Unknowingly to almost everyone, Asdrubal Cabrera was able to throw a bullet...

Mets Are 5-0 When Eric Young Jr. Steals A Base

There have been a lot of complaints about Eric Young. He doesn’t get on base enough. His batting average is too low. He shouldn’t be an everyday player. He should be the 4th outfielder. Guess what? Speed Kills. Stolen bases don’t produce runs? Last year, I went through the Mets top stolen base seasons and wrote a post about how often runs were scored when both a stolen base...

Eric Young Jr. is a professional baserunner

Baseball is a hilarious sport. At one point in the season, the Rockies designated Eric Young Jr. for assignment, then he’s traded to the Mets for Collin McHugh, and now he is among the league leaders in stolen bases. This is the epitome of “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” however the Rockies probably wish they still had Young right now. This may be the best...

Eric Young Jr. could provide nice bang for the buck

Some Mets’ fans have shrugged at the idea of acquiring the services of Eric Young Jr. (traded for Collin McHugh on Tuesday night) from the Colorado Rockies, saying he is nothing more than filler with no real upside and one who will fit right in with the Mets’ under-qualified outfield. The naysayers have a point. After all, Young’s career slash line is a modest .261/.329/.342...
