Chris Young expected to start for Royals on Friday

Chris Young is tentatively scheduled to make a spot start for the Kansas City Royals on Friday night.

Young, 35, won the 2014 American League comeback player of the year award yet had to settle for a one-year deal worth $675,000 from the Royals this spring.

Since the season started Young has been working out of the Royals bullpen. A year ago he appeared in 30 games – 29 starts – for the Seattle Mariners posting a 3.65 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

Young would start in place of Edinson Volquez who dropped his appear of a five-game suspension earlier in the day. Royals manager Ned Yost did leave open the possibility that the Royals could be forced to use Young in middle relief prior to Friday.
