Jared Young

27-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Chicago Cubs AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Young made his MLB debut in 2022 as a 27-year-old. He played in just six games, registering a .732 OPS across 19 at-bats. More telling was Young's stat line at the Triple-A level. In 109 contests for the Iowa Cubs, he posted a .724 OPS and blasted 17 home runs, which represented a new career best at any level. Young also displayed good versatility in the minors, as he split his time between first base, third base and the outfield. The ability to play multiple positions gives Young an outside shot to earn a bench role with Chicago to begin the 2023 season, though he's more likely to start with Iowa once again. At this point in his career, Young looks like the classic organizational depth player. He can fill out a bench in the majors if a need arises, but he's probably best suited for Triple-A. That doesn't leave Young with a ton of fantasy value at this point. Read Past Outlooks

Outrighted to Triple-A
1BChicago Cubs  AAA
November 11, 2022
Young cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
ANALYSIS
Young appeared in just six games for the Cubs at the tail end of last season, recording five hits and three walks over 22 plate appearances. Most of his time was spent in Triple-A, where he slashed .228/.309/.415 over 455 plate appearances. Whether or not he returns to the Cubs' 40-man roster will likely depend on if he can improve those numbers in 2023.
