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.
 
9/11/2014 12:31:00 PM
Description: Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. was 3-for-3 with an RBI-triple on Wednesday to lead the Mets past the Rockies, 2-0.

Description: New York outfielder Eric Young Jr. (hamstring) is expected to go on the disabled list, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.
Insight: A hamstring injury for a player who relies on speed is never good. Young is hitting just .220 with a .620 OPS this season, but he's scored 28 runs and stolen 17 bases. His absence will provide everyday spots in the lineup to Juan Lagares and Chris Young.

Description: Eric Young went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs and one RBI Sunday against the Phillies and is hitting .364 with five RBI in five games since joining the Mets.
Insight: Young has good speed, but he's unlikely to provide fantasy owners with much else, especially playing games at Citi Field instead of Coors.
