ARLINGTON, Texas -- Manager Ron Washington was forthcoming with what he would ask for if general manager Jon Daniels offered to get him one thing via a trade to help the Rangers down the stretch.

"We need another bat that can possibly be an impact," Washington said Tuesday during his weekly radio show on Fitzsimmons and Durrett on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM.

No deals are looming for the Rangers, although multiple reports said Tuesday that Michael Young will only leave Philadelphia for Texas.

ESPN's Jayson Stark tweeted early Tuesday afternoon that despite the talk of a Young reunion with the Rangers, no deal is close. "Not sure if I'd classify it as likely," Stark tweeted.

Washington said Tuesday that he understands if Daniels is hesitant to make a deal for a bat with the Rangers coming out of the All-Star break with a 3-8 record and falling six games behind Oakland in the AL West.

"I understand it's tough to make a decision like that," Washington said. "But if we get it going and we can change his mind, then we can get that impact bat.

"It's going to be up to us. After the way those guys came out last night, after what we've been through, we will sustain."
