DENVER -- The microscope has focused more sharply on rehabbing pitcher Chris Young this week, now that Mike Pelfrey is almost certainly headed for season-ending elbow surgery. Young has been facing live batters in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and according to manager Terry Collins, could be ready to join New York's rotation by mid- to late-May.

I don't like to be negative, but I'm not going to hold my breath on this one.

He's better than nothing as far as depth is concerned, but yeah, it's a fool's errand to count on him contributing anything. It would be a bit of a surprise if he even turned up 'ready' to go, let alone lasting more than a handful of starts (plus, there's no guarantee he's any good even if he does stay healthy).

Per Rubin, Chris Young "sat" at 85 in the intrasquad game (assume that, since it comes from team reports, it was probably more like 82-83, hit 85 a few times) and is NOT going to begin game assignments yet as originally was rumored.
