Mets Pitcher Chris Young makes a big step in his rehab, getting closer to rotation?
He walked three and struck out two and threw 50 of his 87 pitches for strikes. The Mets have been talking about Young making one more start for Buffalo before bringing him up to the majors to slot into their rotation. He has now made four rehab starts.
After the outing, Young told the Buffalo News: “I’ll do what’s best for the New York Mets. We’ll sit down and discuss it. We’re trying to win a championship there. That’s most important. The team is off to a great start and obviously I want to be a part of it. I feel good and given the results today I feel like I’m pretty close to being ready. We’ll sit down and talk and see what they feel is appropriate. If it’s here, that’s great. If it’s in New York, I’ll be ready to help win a ballgame there.”
