BaseballInjury News on Chris Young Keeps Getting Worse by Staff Post May 9, 2011 Everyone, including New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, knew the risks in signing free agent starter Chris Young this offseason. That’s why the sides agreed to a contract with a base salary of just $1.1 million.The former All-Star pitcher was coming off an injury, having missed much of 2010 after having surgery in 2009 to repair a torn labrum. Young has been placed on the disabled list for the second time this season.Young had been the teams most effective starter, when he was able to take the mound. In four starts, he lasted 24 innings while compiling a 1-0 record and impressive 1.88 ERA. Young was bringing a comforting feeling to the Mets when it was his turn to pitch.In his last start, Young’s fastball velocity was down in the low 80’s. This drew some concern. On Saturday, Young was scheduled to pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers. However, he was unable to get loose which resulted in being scratched from the start. An MRI on Sunday revealed swelling behind the shoulder which was surgically repaired in 2009.The fear is that this injury could be an aggravation of his previous one. If that is the case, Young may be on the shelf for much longer than the Mets would hope. Alderson did not appear optimistic that Young would be able to pitcher when eligible to come off the DL.In fact, the GM said he would be looking at the market for a pitcher. Don’t expect any big moves but if Alderson can find a bargain, he may make a move.Taking Young’s place in the rotation is youngster Dillon Gee. Gee is finally getting his shot in the rotation and performing fairly well. On the season, Gee is 2-0 with a 3.80 ERA.Minor league options to fill pitching spots for the Mets are limited. Gee and Pat Misch arae alread up with the team. Top prospect Jenrry Mejia appears to be headed toward Tommy John surgery and Boof Bonsor has already had the same surgery done and will be out the remainder of the season.The only other true option at this point seems to be D.J. Carrasco who has been working as a starter at Triple-A. Alderson will look around, however no sure option seems to be out there. The Mets would likely have to take a risk on another pitcher. Might not be a bad idea though, it could at least provide more depth. accutane news tabs provera price usa digoxin pharmacokinetics heart failure side effects all i do is win girls in the music video for sale lithium aa batteries australia pills albendazole solubility in methanol protonix cost of effects piles in pregnancy common Buy Without Prescription crestor for cholesterol reduction side effects lisinopril cough studies price Post Views: 1,150The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest PostsStaff PostLatest posts by Staff Post (see all) In The Zone Announces Initial Podcast Lineup - November 13, 2020 The Essential Resources You Need to Start Your Own Gym in 2020 - February 6, 2020 Wilder vs Fury II – How the second fight will be different to the first? - February 5, 2020 Early turnovers, defensive struggles plague the Scarlet Knights - January 26, 2020 Related TopicsChris YoungDillon GeeNew York MetsSandy Alderson 1 Comment 1 Comment You must be logged in to post a comment Login Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.Newsletter SubscriptionCan't Miss Posts!
