Profile: Young had his best xFIP since 2011! Second-best swinging strike rate of his career! A major arsenal change! Everything is headed in the right direction! Nope. He's 37, and even if he's beaten peripherals for most of his career by throwing high in the zone, the lack of a diverse array of pitches limits his upside as much as his declining velocity. He had abductor surgery this offseason, and now he's best cast as the 26th-30th man on a roster who is there to help in case of emergency. (Eno Sarris)

The Quick Opinion: In case of emergency, break glass and find your long man. Chris Young may find a job in real baseball but probably not in fantasy leagues.
