Healthy after September surgery Young (hand) is starting in left field and batting seventh in Monday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Impact After serving as a backup designated hitter and striking out in his lone plate appearance in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Rockies, Young will now pick up his first start of the spring. His inclusion in the lineup is an indiction that he's made a full recovery from the surgery he required last September to remove the hamate bone from his hand. The 26-year-old got the chance to make his big-league debut in 2020, seeing action in 12 games while slashing .192/.382/.385 over 34 plate appearances.
