Mets starting pitcher Chris Young has been sidelined since April 10 with a biceps injury, but is very close to returning to the hill. He threw 40 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday and felt fine. He did go home after the session, but that's because he has a heavy cold and manager Terry Collins just told him to go -- along with Mike Pelfrey. Young will get the ball Tuesday for the Mets against the Nationals.
Young, 31, started the season very well. He started the season with a solid outing against the Phillies where he also starred with his bat. Through two starts, he's 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings.
