Chris Young talks about joining the A's
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The Oakland A's have four starting outfielders on their roster, but only three spots to put them in. One of them is Chris Young who spent the past six years with the Arizona Diamondbacks. I sat down with Young and asked how tough was it to be to be traded.
"It was a new experience for me. Being in Arizona for over six years, it was fun and now it's time for a change and I'm excited about the opportunity," said Young.
Shumann: "It's kind of a tough adjustment to fit in, right?"
Young: "Even more so I think when you're switching leagues at the same time. A new kid in school, that's kind of what I felt like."
Shumann: "What's your impression of this team?"
Young: "It's a young ball club that's full of energy and full of talent at the same time. It seems like in the clubhouse, they're a pretty loose group, like they have a good time, but at the same time I guess from watching them from the outside last year, when they step on the field, they're ready to go."
It will be a challenge for Bob Melvin to find playing time for all these players as this may be the most deep and talented outfield in the American League.
