The Arizona Diamondbacks have definitely felt the absence
of Chris Young.
The center fielder got off to a blistering start to the
2012 season, hitting .410 with five homers and 13 runs
batted in during the D-backs’ 7-4 start.
Since Young suffered a right shoulder contusion which
landed him on the disabled list, the Diamondbacks have
limped to a 2-6 mark and are embarking on a 10-game
eastern road trip.
But there’s hope on the horizon, courtesy of C.Y. himself,
who updated his fans on Twitter Friday.
Hope my teammates can
still feel my presence in the dugout even tho I’m not
there. Great day of rehab today tho. Wanna swing a bat on

That’s good news for the Diamondbacks, who are hitting
just .230 as a team and are averaging 3.5 runs per game
since Young went down with the injury.
Young is eligible to come off of the disabled list May 2.
