SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres manager Bud Black says right-hander Chris Young is scheduled to start Saturday night at St. Louis.
The 6-foot-10 Young made one start this season before going on the disabled list April 12 with a strained right shoulder. Young is coming off three rehab starts in the minor leagues.
On Saturday night, he allowed three hits in 5 2-3 scoreless innings with seven strikeouts and one walk for Class A Lake Elsinore.
Young has had a significant injury each of the last three seasons.
The Padres dropped out of first place for the first time in three months Thursday.
