He's slashed .210/.290/.435 across 22 contests at the major-league level and can handle the corner infield and outfield spots.... See More ... See Less

Young went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's win over the Rockies.
Making his first start for the Cubs since July, Young delivered a critical home run to help the team in its pursuit of a playoff spot. The 28-year-old has only appeared in 15 contests this year and has provided two long balls along with eight RBI.

Young sat out the last two games but will return to the lineup Sunday to face Domingo German.

Cubs' Jared Young: Remains on bench
Young will sit for the second straight game Saturday against the Yankees.
Young immediately stepped into the large side of a platoon with Trey Mancini at first base after getting called up in late June, but his off day here comes against a righty in Gerrit Cole. Young has gone 1-for-17 at the plate in his last six games after going 4-for-9 with three extra-base hits in his first three appearances, so he could continue to cede time to Mancini going forward....

Young appeared in six games for the Cubs last season and Wednesday marked his 2023 debut. The 27-year-old looks mostly like organizational depth, though Chicago could give him some extended run at first base and DH if he's able to produce.... See More ... See Less
