Young day-to-day after plunking
Nationals first baseman injured Sunday in bunting mishap
By Bill Ladson / MLB.com
On Sunday, Young, 35, was attempting to bunt when a ball from the pitching machine hit two of his fingers.
Young, who will make $5 million in 2009, is not on the Nationals' 40-man roster, but is trying to make the team as a reserve.
After representing Washington in the 2007 All-Star Game, Young battled injuries in '08 and played in just 50 games, hitting .280 with four homers.
