Sources: Red Sox are Young's 2nd choice
Young spent the first 13 years of his career in Texas before being traded to Philadelphia in December.
Sources said that Young will consider other teams if there is no chance that he can go back to the Rangers. Young's second choice appears to be the Red Sox, according to sources. The New York Yankees could also get into the mix if Texas and Boston pass on Young.
