I read that the padres manager said he isnt guranteeing young a spot in the rotation.
Young has failed to impress this spring, but I cant imaging the guy not getting a spot.

Hey, Rentz.

Here's an article from this morning saying that Boche plans to keep Young in the rotation:

"Bochy said his plan still calls for Young, 26, to join ace Jake Peavy and veteran Shawn Estes in the rotation – even after Young labored in his final Cactus League tuneup yesterday."

I think he'll actually have a pretty good year in that pitcher-friendly ballpark.

When he got shelled in that first outing he wasn't even throwing his curveball. He only threw two pitches, the fastball and changeup, and he was working on variations of the two. This is why ST stats can be misleading sometimes. Statistically Young has been underwhelming but the Padres seem to be fairly impressed with him.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
