Padres right-hander Chris Young has been on the disabled list with a strained shoulder since throwing six shutout innings in the second game of the season and his first rehab outing was a mess yesterday at Double-A.
Young couldn’t make it out of the first inning, allowing five runs on two hits and four walks for a lovely 67.50 ERA. He initially hoped to come off the DL when eligible after 15 days, but that ship has already sailed and clearly he’s not close to being ready for major-league competition.
Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that Young will likely make at least one more rehab start later this week, but he’d need to have quite a turnaround for the first-place Padres (seriously, go look at the standings) to feel comfortable sliding him back into the rotation.
