Lineup change: Elvis Andrus at SS, Young DH
Young's wife, Cristina Barbosa, is close to giving birth to the couple's third child, so Young was with her for most of the day and is on call to be there whenever she goes into labor. So he'll be the DH and if something happens, manager Ron Washington will make a switch.
Young has two sons, Mateo and Emilio.
