Key Stats: Just take a look at the what they’re saying section, and you get the idea of where Michael Young’s value comes into play. Depending on the type of league he could be eligible at three different infield positions. There isn’t a player that should be taken ahead of Young that plays that many positions. Going back to 2002, Young has never been placed on the disabled list. That is the biggest reason why he is the only third base eligible player to be ranked in the top 100 for six straight seasons.
Skeptics Say: Maybe he’s never been on the DL, but studies show that he is human. He will be 35 this season. None of his numbers are really troubling in terms of Young heading toward a downward trend other than the home run production. That said, if he continues to hit for average and just hit in the Rangers lineup, it won’t matter in the grand scheme of a fantasy season. no comments
