Pregame Notes: Chris Young, Farnsworth, Reid, Parnell
Outfielder Chris Young, who missed the opening day game with a right quadriceps strain, is expected to return to the Mets lineup Wednesday night against the Nationals.
The Mets made room for Kyle Farnsworth on the 40-man roster by outrighting right-handed pitcher Ryan Reid to Triple-A Las Vegas. Farnsworth was added to the roster to take the place of Bobby Parnell, who officially went on the disabled list Wednesday.
The Mets acquired Reid from the Pirates in a December waiver claim.
