As expected, the Padres placed right-hander Chris Young on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with right shoulder tightness.
Young was brilliant in his 2010 debut, allowing just one hit over six scoreless innings to the Diamondbacks, but reported tightness in his throwing shoulder the next day and it has not subsided. The move was made retroactive to April 7, so he can return in a little over a week if healthy.
The Padres are taking extra precautions with Young this season, considering he missed half of the 2009 season and made only 18 starts in 2008. The 30-year-old from Princeton owns a 3.84 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 737-plus career innings. A corresponding move has not been announced, but it’s a near certainty that the Padres will eventually recall a pitcher.
