(9:53 am ET) Mets outfielder Chris Young was forced to leave Monday's game against the Mariners late, due to an issue with his left calf.

|Report: Mets in market to acquire shortstop, left fielder |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/14/14) While the Mets might be shopping veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon by the July 31 trade deadline, they also appear buyers.
The Mets would like to acquire an upgrade at shortstop over Ruben Tejada and a power-hitting left fielder to join Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson as regulars in the outfield, industry sources told ESPN.
It is also believed Mets general manager Sandy Alderson could be looking to deal outfielders Chris Young and Eric Young.
|Chris Young delivers game-tying, pinch-hit home run Saturday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) Mets outfielder Chris Young knocked a pinch-hit, two-run home run Saturday to tie the game in the seventh inning before his team went on to defeat the Marlins, 5-4.
Young was 0 for 8 in July going into Saturday's game before delivering his eighth home run of the season. The outfielder has hit .199/.280/.354 with eight home runs, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 206 at-bats.
|Hisashi Iwakuma, Chris Young set for weekend series |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) The Mariners set their rotation for this weekend's series against the Athletics Wednesday, according to The News Tribune.
Felix Hernandez was bumped back a day to start Friday, as previously announced. Hisashi Iwakuma will follow him Saturday, and Chris Young will get one more start before the All-Star break, set for Sunday's first half closer.
|By signing him to a one-year, $7.25 million deal this offseason, the Mets are attempting to do what the Athletics couldn't: revive Chris Young. Oakland thought it had him all figured out when it acquired him from the Diamondbacks last offseason, hoping to take advantage of his favorable split against lefties in previous years by making him a platoon player. But the reduced at-bats only seemed to exacerbate his shortcomings, his batting average plummeting to a career-low .200 as he struggled to make consistent contact. The Mets intend to make Young their everyday right fielder, or perhaps center fielder, which should help him bounce back. But to what, exactly? He's had only one season in the last five in which he's hit better than .240. He still has enough power and speed to approach 20 homers and 20 steals, but that would make him a poor man's Will Venable in a best-case scenario. If Venable is barely getting drafted in standard mixed leagues, you can certainly leave Young for NL-only formats.
