Padres decline option on RHP Young

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres have declined their $8.5 million option on right-hander Chris Young for next season.

General manager Jed Hoyer said the day after the season ended that the Padres are open to bringing Young back at a lower amount.

Young was sidelined most of the season with a strained right shoulder, his third significant injury in as many seasons. He returned to the rotation in the season's final weeks.

Catcher Yorvit Torrealba has declined his $3.5 million mutual option with the Padres.
