Score another for fans of predictable injuries.
From Ken Davidoff of Newsday comes word that right-hander Chris Young has been scratched from his scheduled Saturday evening start against the Dodgers due to renewed problems with his right biceps tendinitis.
Young, who spent half of April on the disabled list, wasn’t able to get loose while warming up Saturday afternoon at Citi Field.
Dillon Gee has taken the mound in his place. A 25-year-old right-hander, he has posted a 2.31 ERA and 1.11 WHIP as a starter this season.
The Mets are hoping that Young will feel well enough to give it another go in a couple of days.
