Chris Young proved he’s recovered from thoracic outlet surgery this spring by posting a respectable 3.48 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in four Grapefruit League appearances for the Nationals. But there’s no spot for him on Washington’s major league roster and so he was let go in a round of cuts Tuesday in camp.
Young did not pitch at the big league level in 2013, but he was decent for the Mets in 2012 and would make for solid emergency rotation depth for a number of clubs. He joins Freddy Garcia, Scott Baker, and Erik Bedard on the secondary starting pitching market. Also, the Mariners just released veteran left-hander Randy Wolf, according to MLB.com’s Greg Johns.
