MLB rumors: Michael Young expected to approve trade to Phillies Saturday

Thearon W. Henderson

After several days of deliberation, Michael Young is expected to approve a trade from the Texas Rangers to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.

After some waiting, Texas Rangers infielder Michael Young is expected to approve a trade to the Philadelphia Phillies sometime on Saturday. Young had been rumored to be going to Philadelphia for a few days now, but had to approve the deal due to his status as a 10/5 player. The Phillies are rumored to be sending reliever Josh Lindblom and a prospect back to Texas for Young.

Young has been in the league for 13 years, all of them with the Rangers. For his career, Young is hitting .301 with 177 home runs and 987 RBIs. The 35-year-old infielder hit .277 with eight home runs and 67 RBIs last season, which are either at or near career lows in all categories. The seven time All Star has played shortstop, third base, and second base, and also spent some time at designated hitter, but will likely spend most of his time at third base in Philadelphia.
