Michael Young


It appears Michael Young is on the move again, as according to ESPN, the Philadelphia Phillies infielder has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, for a minor-league pitcher.

The Dodgers plan on using Young, 36, as a bench player who can spell third baseman Juan Uribe and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez as well as pinch hit. He is batting .272 with eight home runs and 41 RBIs this season.

The Phillies will receive minor league left-hander Rob Rasmussen, who is 3-4 with a 2.55 ERA at Double-A Chattanooga.

Young, who is a free agent after the season, waived his full n0-trade clause to join the Dodgers after stating earlier that he wouldn’t unless he was returning to the Texas Rangers.
