Chris Young: Latest Updates on Diamondbacks CF's Quad Injury

Arizona Diamondbacks' center fielder Chris Young returned to the lineup on Tuesday, but he did not last long. He re-injured his quad on the first play of Arizona's crucial game with the San Diego Padres

The USA Today's Bob Nightengale passed along the news Twitter style. 

Adam Eaton took over for Young in center field and Gerardo Parra entered the game for Young and took Eaton's spot in left. 

Young had been out of the lineup since injuring his quad on September 15, and apparently he was not yet ready to return. 

Hamstrings and quads are tricky injuries. They are two injuries that cannot be rushed back. If they are, you get what happened to Young. 

Now, this doesn't mean the Diamondbacks' medical staff was negligent. Young very well could have been moving around pain free and showed no signs that a re-injury imminent. 

This injury will likely force Young back to square one with his recovery, which is bad news for the Diamondbacks who are 72-74 and are 4.5 games out of the final wild card spot. 

Young is hitting .227 with 14 home runs and 39 RBI in 94 games this season. If he finishes this season with an average less than .236, it will be the second-straight season he has seen his average drop. 

Struggling average or not, Arizona did not want to see this.
