Royals-Yankees Preview

(AP) -- Chris Young relishes any chance he gets to succeed in the majors after dealing with a long history of shoulder problems.

Coincidentally, injuries have given him the opportunity to shine in the Kansas City Royals' starting rotation.

Two days after turning 36, Young looks to help the Royals avoid a fourth straight loss Wednesday by beating the host New York Yankees for the second time in less than two weeks.
