HOUSTON -- The good news for the Padres is that Major League ERA leader Chris Young is feeling better after straining his oblique this past Tuesday.

The bad news is that it's not healing quite fast enough for him to make his next start.

San Diego announced that the right-hander will miss his scheduled start Sunday against the Astros, and a pitcher from Triple-A Portland will be promoted to start the finale of the four-game series at Minute Maid Park.

"We want to make sure we're doing the right thing for this injury," manager Bud Black said. "This is typically not a quick-healing injury. It is optimistic that he's feeling better, but I think this is a slow healing situation."

The next step for the Padres is to determine whether Young's injury will lead to a stint on the disabled list. That determination will be made Saturday afternoon based on the progress he's made to that point.

"It feels better today than yesterday," Young said. "It's encouraging. It easily could've been the same or worse."

For comparison, Houston closer Brad Lidge suffered the same oblique injury last month, and it took him approximately two-and-a-half weeks and a trip to the DL before he was able to throw at 100 percent. While the timetable obviously varies for each player, the precedent suggests Young may need more time to heal.

Tentatively, Young's next scheduled start is Saturday, Aug. 4 at home against the Giants.

HOUSTON -- The San Diego Padres placed major league ERA leader Chris Young on the disabled list Saturday and called up Tim Stauffer from Triple-A Portland to start Sunday in Houston.

Young left the Padres' game against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday with a strained oblique muscle. The 28-year-old Young leads the major leagues with a 1.82 ERA.

Padres manager Bud Black said the team expected the right-hander to recover within two weeks.
