At minimum, Young will be out at least three games, and he could miss up to seven.
The club called up infielder Cesar Hernandez from Triple-A to replace him on the roster.
Young, who’s hitting .258 on the season, is just 5-for-42 during the last 10 games.
The Phillies likely will play Kevin Frandsen (.229 in 35 at bats this year) at third base while Young is out.
