Score another for fans of predictable injuries.

From Ken Davidoff of Newsday comes word that right-hander Chris Young has been scratched from his scheduled Saturday evening start against the Dodgers due to renewed problems with his right biceps tendinitis.

Young, who spent half of April on the disabled list, wasn’t able to get loose while warming up Saturday afternoon at Citi Field.

Dillon Gee has taken the mound in his place. A 25-year-old right-hander, he has posted a 2.31 ERA and 1.11 WHIP as a starter this season.

The Mets are hoping that Young will feel well enough to give it another go in a couple of days.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
