Chris Young is struggling and it’s time for a reduced role.

He shouldn’t play against every left-handed starter right now. Last year, as the Red Sox made their way into the postseason, Chris Young was one of the most underappreciated players on the roster. This really wasn’t all that surprising given what role he filled. Platoon players aren’t around on an everyday basis, so it only makes sense that they would go underappreciated.
