Description: Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. given the night off on Monday.
Insight: Young has been producing from a batting average standpoint over the past 28 days (.303), but only has two extra-base hits and 2 RBI during that span. He should be back in the lineup tomorrow night, as Matt den Dekker gets the nod tonight.
