Mets outfielder Chris Young left last night’s game with a strained quadriceps and now he’s headed to the disabled list.

Young actually injured his quadriceps during spring training and sat out Opening Day before joining the lineup for Game 2, but made it just one inning before exiting.

Andrew Brown replaced Young in left field yesterday and should pick up quite a bit of playing time, with Eric Young Jr. also getting more action in Young’s absence.

Young signed a one-year, $7.25 million deal with the Mets in the hopes of bouncing back following a rough 2013 with the A’s and hitting the open market again as a 31-year-old next winter.

    All I’m getting from this between the Phillies’ experience last season and the Mets so far is DON’T SIGN PLAYERS NAMED YOUNG, Sign actual young players instead.

      So I guess we shouldn’t resurrect Cy Young.

        Who knows how Cy Young would perform today. Baseball is quite different from what it was back then. Although the good news is a Zombie Cy would never tire, you could have him throw complete games.

        So that wouldn’t change from the old days.

        Nope. But watch where he bites. Wouldn’t want to precipitate a Zombie Apocalypse.

    And knowing the Mets, he’ll probably be out until at least the All-Star Break.

    Young had a bad 2013? What about most of his career? After watching this guy in Arizona, I’m surprised he got anything close to $7 million.

    Nelson Cruz signed with the O’s for 1 year / $8M. Enough said.
