According to ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin, Young threw a successful three-inning simulated game on Thursday afternoon at Citi Field and is pushing to return to the Mets’ rotation on Tuesday night against the Nationals. He will toss a final bullpen session Saturday to prove his readiness.
“I think so,” Young said when asked about skipping a minor league rehab assignment. “I haven’t missed too much. I think if it were prolonged, I’d probably need a rehab start. But at this point I still feel comfortable picking up hopefully where I left off.”Dillon Gee, 24, has been filling in for Young. He limited the Braves to one earned run over five-plus innings on Sunday but will likely head back to the Triple-A level once Young is deemed fit to return.

Beltran, who is rehabbing from left knee tendinitis, did not see in-game action on Thursday.
He instead played in a simulated game, complete with outfield movement, with a second one on the docket Friday.
“I just wanted to come here today and test it,” Beltran said. “Actually, this is more than what we do in a game. I just wanted to test the knee. Hopefully tomorrow I recuperate, feeling good.”
Beltran said he managed to give a full effort while rounding the bases.
“That’s 100 percent right there. I’m not going to get faster than that,” said the All-Star outfielder. “Those couple of steps when you’re slowing down, normally when you have tendinitis you feel it there. But I didn’t feel anything there. This is a good step for me to move forward. Defensively I feel very comfortable. My main concern was being able to run the bases.”
