Chris Young was scratched from his scheduled Friday start because of biceps tendinitis, but now it looks like his turn in the rotation will merely be pushed back a couple days.
Young threw a bullpen session this morning and reported “no problems” while telling Kieran Darcy of ESPNNewYork.com that he “felt good.” Barring a last-minute setback he’ll face the Braves on Sunday.
Young has never thrown 180 innings in a season and his lengthy injury history made him available to the Mets for just $1.1 million in guaranteed money this offseason, but the 6-foot-10 right-hander looked good in his first two starts and has always been a solid mid-rotation starter in between disabled list stints.
