Michael Young trade not looking likely at this point
Sources say the chance of Michael Young being traded are not good. One source said there is a “high probability” that Young could still be with the Rangers this season as their designated hitter and “super utility” infielder.
Teams are kicking the tires but nobody has really stepped up. The three years and $48 million that Young has remaining on his contract remains an obstacle.
General manager Jon Daniels said he is still trying to accomodate Young’s request for a trade but said they are still in the same situation as they were earlier in the week. At this point the Rangers appear to be dealing with the eight teams on Young’s list and that list has yet to be expanded.
Daniels said if there is a trade, it would most likely be before the Rangers first full-squad workout in Surprise a week from Saturday. At this point, the Rangers and Young may have to come to some sort of reconcilliation.
