Still mired in the rehabilitation from his May shoulder surgery, Chris Young faces several questions regarding his future with the New York Mets.
The 32-year-old righty had the surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his right shoulder, and he has made just eight starts over the past two seasons. According to Newsday's Kevin Davidoff, the Mets are interested in bringing back Davis, who made $1.1 million in 2011. However, a major stumbling block is still present.

Also, for a look at the Mets' 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo, head over to ESPN New York. They have a short but insightful interview with the 18-year-old center fielder, as well as a longer feature on the 13th-overall pick in the draft. Nimmo's looking to spend 2012 with a full-season team, and low-A Savannah seems to be a likely destination.
"Wherever they put me is fine with me, but I'm really, really excited -- looking forward to a full season," said Nimmo, who is part of the Mets' elite-prospects camp, which began last weekend, before other minor leaguers report. "I think last year things were just going at 100 mph right after I signed. I was at one place for two weeks, another for three days, and then another for three weeks, and just never really could get settled in, you know?"
