Diamondbacks Vs. Mariners: Starting Lineups, Injury Updates, Chris Young Not In Center

As the Arizona Diamondbacks take on the Seattle Mariners in game two of their three-game interleague series tonight, center fielder Chris Young will not be in the lineup. In the presser before the game, manager Kirk Gibson cited his struggles on Monday and seems to think that CY is "frustrated".

"He's pressing pretty hard, give him a day to relax and to work on some things," Gibson said. When asked if Young's lack of power could be attributed to the shoulder injury he sustained earlier this season, Gibson seemed to dismiss the notion. "I don't know," Gibson said about Young and his inability to return to his early season form. "Early in the season he was locked in, so he trying to get back to that and that's pretty hard to do... He's not there right now."

In other news, Gibson gave an update as to the health status of both Stephen Drew and Takashi Saito. Drew will begin another back-to-back-to-back outing tonight in Reno with the Aces. The D-backs will have to make a decision as to whether he will be called up to the majors or not by June 27. If a decision is not made, they can extend his time with the Aces.

Saito, on the other hand, is completely unavailable in any form right now. Gibby claims that he is sick with some sort of virus. There is no timetable for his return to Reno.

On the mound for the Diamondbacks will be Daniel Hudson facing off against Erasmo Ramirez, a former relief pitcher for the Mariners. He currently holds a record of 0-1.
