NEW YORK -- Left fielder Chris Young, who missed the Mets' opening day game because of a right quadriceps strain, couldn't make it through the first inning of Game 2.

Young wasn't moving well in the outfield, was replaced by Andrew Brown when the second inning began, and now could be headed to the disabled list.

Young, a free-agent signing last winter, suffered the injury over the weekend in the final spring training games in Montreal.

The Mets are playing with an extra position player, because they don't need to activate Jonathon Niese until his Sunday start against the Reds. Brown figured to be sent down to make room for Niese, but Young's injury will likely save him a spot on the roster.
