Philadelphia Phillies: Top Possible Trades to Acquire Michael Young to Play RF

Michael Young of the Texas Rangers made it clear that he is not happy with his current situation in Texas, where Young’s role will be reduced to designated hitter, with the signing of Adrian Beltre.

Young has long been a good sport to the Rangers.  Young came up as a second baseman, working on the other side of second base to his natural position of shortstop, because the Rangers had Alex Rodriguez.

Then, Young moved to shortstop after Alex Rodriguez was traded to the New York Yankees to play third base there.

Then, Elvis Andrus was acquired in a trade for Mark Teixeira. Once again, Young changed positions, this time to third base.

It sounds as if enough is enough for Young, Yahoo’s Tim Brown writes.

“They will attempt to trade him in the coming days, according to a source familiar with those conversations, in part because Young has grown disillusioned with his diminished role on the team.”

While Young has been linked to the Angels and Rockies, the Phillies would make perfect sense as a landing spot for Young to fill the hole left by Jayson Werth signing with the Nationals.  

Here are the top trade scenarios to land him for the Phillies.
