Phillies third baseman Michael Young has told Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. that at this point he will only waive his no-trade clause to return to the Texas Rangers, sources told's Jayson Stark.

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.
