Michael Young headed to the Phillies?

12/6/2012

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Texas Rangers and Philadelphia Phillies are talking about a trade involving Michael Young, sources confirmed on Thursday.

A source said the Rangers would be paying at least half of Young's $16 million salary if the deal is done. Texas could receive some bullpen help or prospects if a deal is completed.

But no deal can happen without Young's approval. He's played his entire career in Texas and has 10-5 rights (10 years in the majors, at least five with the same team), meaning he must sign off on any deal. It's unknown whether he'll do that.
