When the Diamondbacks placed outfielder Chris Young on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday morning, they said it was because of a “right shoulder contusion.” But an MRI taken Wednesday afternoon has revealed the matter to be far worse.

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that Young has been diagnosed with a slight ligament tear in his shoulder and a deep bruise in his shoulder joint.

There’s currently no timetable for his return.

Young, 28, recorded an impressive .410/.500/.897 batting line, five home runs, two stolen bases and 13 RBI through his first 46 plate appearances of the 2012 season. Gerardo Parra is expected to fill in for him.

    Honestly, was it worth it?

      Considering he was my best fantasy outfielder….No, no it was not.

    Really surprising. Didn’t look like that bad of a collision. His reaction showed he was injured, though. I hope he recovers. Shoulder injuries are very serious for these guys.
