Young pushed back two days because of bicep tendonitis

Mets starting pitcher Chris Young has developed a case of biceps tendonitis in his right arm, the Mets said, and his next scheduled start has been pushed back two days until Sunday in Atlanta.

Manager Terry Collins said Young, who has pitched very well in his first two starts as a Met, told him the injury is not serious and that he could have pitched Friday if necessary. But Young had surgery on his shoulder in 2009 and made only four starts in 2010, so any injury in the general area needs to be handled cautiously.

Collins also said doctors believed Young did not require a magnetic resonance imaging test.

D.J. Carrasco will likely start Friday, unless he is used extensively in relief in Thursday’s doubleheader.

Jason Bay Most Likely to Start the Season on DL

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  Luc...
According to Yahoo.Sports,  Mets left fielder Jason Bay(notes) may not have fully found his timing at the plate in New York just yet, but his timing seems even worse when it comes to getting injured.

The New York Post reports that Bay could be headed to the disabled list to start the season depending on an evaluation Wednesday. GM Sandy Alderson said Bay felt soreness in his left ribcage area, according to the Post.

Team medical personnel evaluated Bay Tuesday and he'll get another look-over Wednesday, the Post notes. He was also scheduled for X-rays.

"At this particular time we have to be very cautious, because I don't want to lose this guy for a month," manager Terry Collins said, the Post reports. "If we have to lose him for a week, 10 days, that's a hell of a lot better than losing him for two months."

According to Fox Sports , Lucas Duda  has been told he is headed to Miami as the team's starting left fielder on Opening Day against the Florida Marlins.

"It came down to the last day and it's unfortunate that Jason hurt his ribcage," Duda said. "Obviously you don't want to see that happen. He's a great ballplayer and an even better guy so you hate to see that. But I've got to try and help the team anyway I can until Jason gets healthy."

The fact Bay did not appear in the Mets' final six spring training games will allow the team to backdate the DL stint, making him eligible to rejoin the team on April 9.

Bay signed a four-year, $66 million deal with the Mets before last season. He then batted .259 with six homers and 47 RBIs in only 95 games for the team last year.

Mets Injury Notes: Pagan , Izzy, Beltran

Jason Isringhausen. 

Izzy played catch today with pitching coach Dan Warthen (the only man in camp who might have more damage in his throwing elbow). Isringhausen reported no problems with his right elbow. He had been shut down due to inflammation in the joint these past few days.

Isringhausen plans to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, take Thursday off and return to Grapefruit League action on Friday.


Meanwhile, Carlos Beltran is playing DH in a pair of minor-league games at Digital Domain Park today. He will use a designated runner.


New York Mets center fielder Angel Pagan left Tuesday's game in the second inning with lower back tightness.

With Willie Harris serving as the designated hitter, manager Terry Collins elected to use Jason Bay in center field. Bay has made 37 major league starts in center but none since 2005 when he was a Pittsburgh Pirate.

Lucas Duda replaced Pagan in the lineup.
