Michael Young Trade Rumors: 10 Teams That Are a Good Fit for the Texas Ranger

Michael Young has been the one consistent face on the Rangers over the last decade, but now it seems his days in Arlington may be coming to an end.

Alex Rodriguez, Alfonso Soriano, Mark Teixeira and Hank Blalock have all come and gone, but Young has stayed.  Through the losing, through the ownership quagmire, Young has been an All-Star six times, a versatile presence on the field (starting at three different positions), and a leader in the clubhouse.

But now he feels disrespected, and who can blame him?  The Rangers signed Adrian Beltre to a massive free agent contract this offseason, displacing Young at third base.  He agreed to serve primarily as a DH, but then Texas traded for Mike Napoli, who would certainly get some at bats there as well.  Were the Rangers just trying to see how far they could push Young before he pushed back?

Well, they've found it.  Young, forced into a corner, has done what was previously unthinkable and asked for a trade, and the Rangers have said they'll grant his wish. 

Here are 10 places Young might be before the end of the week.
