UPDATE: Mets manager Terry Collins tells Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that Dillon Gee is projected to start Sunday’s game while Pat Misch will back up this afternoon’s starter D.J. Carrasco.

12:50 PM: According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Mets have placed Chris Young on the 15-day disabled list with right biceps tendinitis.

Young initially had his Friday start pushed back to Sunday, but appeared good to go after throwing a bullpen session Thursday. The Mets have another doubleheader this afternoon against the Braves, so there were ultimately some concerns that they would be short-handed in the bullpen if Young was forced to leave Sunday’s start due to injury.

Young hasn’t pitched a full season since 2007 due to a variety of injuries and signed with the Mets this offseason at a base salary of $1.1 million. He has a 1.46 ERA and 12/6 K/BB ratio over his first two starts this season.

The Mets have called up left-hander Pat Misch from Triple-A Buffalo to take his place on the active roster, though Sunday’s starter is still TBA.

    Story of Chris Young’s career and ultimately why the Padres didn’t keep him. He is a good pitcher, but can’t stay healthy

    He has always been a decent pitcher when healthy. Injuries have just done him in. Sad.

    I am a huge Mets fan, and I don’t blame Young. I wouldn’t want to play for us right now either…
