Young suffered the injury during a workout earlier this week. He told reporters Wednesday that he only expects to miss 10 days, but calf strains can sometimes take 2-4 weeks to fully recover from. It's very possible the veteran outfielder will run out of time and have to open the 2018 regular season on the disabled list. He signed a one-year, $2 million free agent contract with the Angels on February 18 and projects to serve as an active fourth outfielder if his health cooperates.

The Red Sox have seven right-handed hitters in there, as Deven Marrero is at third base over Rafael Devers and Hanley Ramirez is at first base instead of Mitch Moreland. Boston's full lineup looks like this: Xander Bogaerts SS, Dustin Pedroia 2B, Andrew Benintendi LF, Mookie Betts RF, Ramirez 1B, Young DH, Christian Vazquez C, Marrero 3B, Jackie Bradley CF.

Chris Young finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's road loss against the Astros.

The Red Sox were limited to just one run and three hits, as David Paulino was confusing Boston hitters all night long. His only mistake was the solo bomb to Young, a Houston native, who was undoubtedly jacked up playing in his hometown.
