Chris Young

Postby jswede » Mon Jul 24, 2006 10:03 am

I disagree with the locking of the "start Chris Young?" thread as the only reason the question is raised is because of his injured foot. Considering his foot caused a missed start last week and he was only named as a starter for today's game yesterday, I think this is the forum to ask for more information on the injury, and whether to start him.

Anyone have any further information / opinion on Chris Young's injury - called "stress reaction" by CBS?

The stress reaction at least is not a fracture. Just him pushing off too hard on his right foot when running the basepaths. With a special boot (just certain padding to help relieve discomfort), he'll be able to pitch, but as seen last night, he may not be able to go deep (6 will probably be his limit for the next two weeks).

Also he could give up a few more home runs, causing his ERA to rise a little, because he will not want to push off as hard on the foot.

My guess is that in two weeks, he'll be back to normal.
