Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Double, RBI in loss

Young started at second base and went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 17-2 loss to the Nationals. Young, who has primarily been used as a pinch hitter, made his second consecutive start at second base. There should be a rotation of players at second after the Diamondbacks placed Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) on the injured list Friday. Young and Josh Rojas will be the top contenders for at-bats at the keystone.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Belts fourth homer

Young hit a solo home run in his only plate appearance during Wednesday's loss to the Marlins. Young was recalled from the minors earlier in the day and immediately made an impact upon his return to the big club, crushing a 442-foot solo shot to left field in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has four hits on the campaign -- all of which have left the yard. He hit 29 homers across two minor-league levels in 2019, so he certainly has pop in his bat, but it remains to be seen if he'll be given enough playing time with Arizona to be worthy of fantasy consideration.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Recalled by Diamondbacks

Young was recalled Wednesday from Triple-A Reno. The second baseman impressed during his first stint on the big-league roster in 2021, albeit in a small sample size, as he hit three homers in 12 at-bats. Young fills the roster spot of Christian Walker (oblique), who was placed on the injured list Wednesday.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Cranks grand slam in first start

Young went 1-for-2 with a grand slam in the 11-6 win Thursday against the Nationals. Young was called up to replace Christian Walker (oblique) on the active roster. The 26-year-old took full advantage of his start by hitting a grand slam in the second inning off Patrick Corbin. He will operate as a utility player, getting spot-starts when others need a routine day off.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Recalled from alternate site

Young was recalled from the Diamondbacks' alternate training site Monday. With Christian Walker (oblique) landing on the injured list, Young will return for his second stint with the big-league team this season. The 26-year-old Young can play pretty much everywhere and he's more than held his own at the upper levels of the minors, but to date the Diamondbacks haven't seemed interested in giving him a look in anything more than a utility role.

Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Called up from taxi squad

Young was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Thursday. The Diamondbacks need an extra bat after Ketel Marte was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring. Young doesn't project as much more than a bench bat and may not start very many games during his time with the team, though he hit a strong .271/.368/.535 across the two highest levels of the minors in 2019. He hit a modest .192/.382/.385 in his 12-game big-league debut last season.
