Chris R. Young, SP SD
News: Padres trainer Todd Hutcheson said SP Chris R. Young, who broke his nose after Cardinals 1B Albert Pujols lined a ball off it Wednesday, will be prevented from doing anything baseball related for at least two weeks. "The fracture did go beyond the nasal bone and affected some other facial bones," Hutcheson said. "Because of that it's required a lot more extensive evaluation." Hutcheson said the evaluation process will have to wait until the swelling subsides. But Padres manager Bud Black said Young return is "not going to be in two or three weeks. It's going to be much longer." A CAT scan revealed a "small crack in the bones of the skull," Hutcheson said. "We're a little concerned about the movement of fluid."
Analysis: Young, who did not suffer a concussion on the play, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday. The 6-foot-10 hurler wanted to remain in the game even as he was sitting on the grass with blood gushing out of the bridge of his nose. "I thought if (Hutcheson) could get the blood stopped, I could jump back on the mound and try to keep going," he said. Young is a dominating pitcher who suffers from a lack of run support when healthy, but he looks like a long-term DL stashee at this point. The Padres might even wait until after the All-Star break to bring him back.
