Mets outfielder Chris Young sat out of Monday’s regular-season opener because of a right quadriceps strain that he suffered during the team’s late-March exhibition games against the Blue Jays in Montreal.

And he is obviously not over the injury yet.

According to beat reporter Adam Rubin at ESPN New York, Young “wasn’t moving well” in the top of the first inning Wednesday against the Nationals and was lifted before his first scheduled trip to the plate in the bottom of the frame. Rubin says Young might now be headed to the 15-day disabled list.

The Mets signed the 30-year-old Young to a one-year, $7.25 million free agent contract this winter and were optimistic that he would provide a big boost to their offense after he hit .310/.365/.500 during the spring.

Young was an All-Star with the Diamondbacks in 2010 when he tallied 27 homers, 91 RBI and 28 steals.
