Chris Young To Disabled List With Shoulder Injury

As expected, Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Chris Young was sent to the 15-day disabled list to recover from a shoulder injury suffered when he crashed in to the wall after making an amazing catch during Tuesday's game. The D-backs had already activated A.J. Pollock to take Young's place in the outfield and with this move will also call-up infielder Cody Ranson who will replace Geoff Blum (side strain).

Young's injury is officially listed as a "right shoulder contusion".

Young had started the season on fire from the plate. He was batting .410 (16-for-39) with 4 doubles, 5 home runs and 13 RBI in 11 games with the D-backs this season. He ranks among the NL leaders in slugging percentage (2nd, .897), home runs (2nd), total bases (2nd, 35), on-base percentage (T-2nd, .500) and RBI (T-3rd). Young's 13 RBI in the club's first 10 games was the fourth-highest total all-time, trailing Luis Gonzalez (16 in 2001), his own 2010 total (15) and Mark Reynolds (14 in 2008).
