Mets place Chris Young on the disabled list

9 Comments

Mets outfielder Chris Young left last night’s game with a strained quadriceps and now he’s headed to the disabled list.

Young actually injured his quadriceps during spring training and sat out Opening Day before joining the lineup for Game 2, but made it just one inning before exiting.

Andrew Brown replaced Young in left field yesterday and should pick up quite a bit of playing time, with Eric Young Jr. also getting more action in Young’s absence.

Young signed a one-year, $7.25 million deal with the Mets in the hopes of bouncing back following a rough 2013 with the A’s and hitting the open market again as a 31-year-old next winter.
