Worth noting

• D-backs outfielder Chris Young, who hasn't started a game since Sept. 3 with a strained right quad, could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday.

"He's feeling pretty good, ran hard yesterday. He's getting treatment," Gibson said. "We'll see how he feels Tuesday. There's a possibility he could be ready to go."

Young pinch-hit both Friday and Saturday against the Giants, but didn't get on base either time.

• While he continues to rehab his ailing back, D-backs infielder Willie Bloomquist will continue to monitor his situation carefully and whether it behooves him to push to make a return this season.

"We'll see if it's worth it to come back," Bloomquist said. "If it feels great, then I will; if it doesn't, then so be it. First things first, I have to get it healthy."

Bloomquist hasn't appeared in a game since Sept. 3 and hasn't started since Aug. 8.

• D-backs pitcher Daniel Hudson, who underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery on July 9, is on schedule so far through his long road of recovery.

"Everything is good so far. You watch him walk around and watch him move and it looks like he hasn't even had surgery," Gibson said. "But obviously throwing a baseball is a little different."

Hudson will begin throwing a tennis ball in a couple of weeks as his next step of rehab.
