Chris Young, who is on the disabled list after jamming his right shoulder against the outfield wall on April 17, had a double and two walks in six at-bats during an extended spring training game Saturday. He hopes to join the team sometime during the next road trip to Los Angeles, Colorado and Kansas City.
"It's coming along. It gets better every day," Young said. "I'll just keep pushing and we'll see where I am at. I don't expect [the discomfort] to be completely gone. I just have to strengthen it up to where I can be productive with it and don't have to hold back with anything."
Young also played in an extended spring training game Thursday.
"The hitting and the running is a lot better," he said. "The throwing? If I had to rank them all, the throwing would be in last-place right now."
D-backs right-hander Daniel Hudson, who faced hitters Friday for the first time since going on the disabled list on April 21 with a right shoulder impingement, said he felt fine Saturday.
Hudson will throw a bullpen session on Monday, and pitch Wednesday in an extended spring training game.
"I'm just trying to stay positive and take it one step at a time," he said.
Around 150 fans participated in the Second Annual D-backs Tweet-up at Chase Field. Team president Derrick Hall and third baseman Ryan Roberts were among the special guests.
"It's another opportunity to interact with fans using social networking and get players involved," Hall said. "We can also reach out to those who are not here."
