News: Young (quadriceps) joined the Mets on Wednesday in anticipation of activation from the disabled list Friday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Impact: Young has tallied hits in each of his three rehab contests at Triple-A Las Vegas, torching PCL pitching to the tune of .667 (8-for-12) with two long balls, five RBI, seven runs, and one stolen base in his sole attempt. His replacement, Juan Lagares, landed on the DL on Tuesday due to a pulled hamstring, which should hand most of the center field reps to Young once he's activated.(RotoWire, )

News: Young (quadriceps) played in an extended spring training game Thursday and may head to Triple-A Las Vegas to begin a rehab assignment Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Impact: As long as Young avoids a setback upon his return to competitive action, he should be ready to come off the DL when eligible April 18. The 30-year-old has played just one inning so far this season, but figures to supplant Juan Lagares in center once activated.(RotoWire, )

News: Young (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, ESPN New York reports. "I don't think it's anything severe," manager Terry Collins said. "I do believe he caught it in time. He just said it grabbed on him. I mean, he could jog off the field. He didn't have to come out immediately. So I don't think it's going to last more than that." Impact: Collins' words suggest he's optimistic Young will miss the minimum 15 days while on the DL, but it's certainly not an ideal way for the 30-year-old to begin his Mets career. Young missed Opening Day due to a quad strain and aggravated the injury after just one inning Wednesday. Eric Young Jr. figures to stay in left field for the time being, with Juan Lagares seeing increased time in center.(RotoWire, )

News: Young left Wednesday's game against the Nationals after apparently aggravating his quad injury, Kevin Burkhardt of SNY reports. Impact: A quad strain kept Young on the bench for Opening Day, and he lasted just one inning Wednesday before the muscle started barking.
