Young to throw second simulated game

Young to throw second simulated game

|
SAN DIEGO -- Padres starting pitcher Chris Young, who is on the 60-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder, will throw his second simulated game on Thursday afternoon before San Diego's series finale against the D-backs.

Padres manager Bud Black said Young will throw three innings, an increase from the two frames he tossed on Saturday in Milwaukee. In all, Young threw 38 pitches in that first simulated game with a short rest in between innings.

"He's throwing all his pitches, not quite sure on the velocity, but he's gaining on it," Black said. "I don't really want to put a number on it. We'll see."

Young made his only start of 2010 in April but hopes to pitch for the Padres in September.
