You have to feel for Michael Young. He has always been bounced around throughout the Rangers organization and can’t seem to find a home at one of the infield positions.
He was brought up as a second basemen but was moved to shortstop as a result of the Alex Rodriguez trade.
He was eventually pushed from shortstop to third base because of the emergence of young prospect, Elvis Andrus.
Despite playing adequate third base and averaging .300 over the past two seasons, the Rangers decided to sign 3B Adrian Beltre to a long-term contract—moving Young to the DH position.
As a result of the constant movement, Michael Young has requested a trade from the Rangers; no surprise there.
However, trading Young would be easier said than done. He signed an $80 million, five-year extension two years ago and still has $48 million left on his contract over the next three years. With that said, he can only be traded to a team that can pick up his massive contract, or swap contracts with another overpaid player.
The following slide show will discuss 10 teams that should target Michael Young this upcoming season to improve their own stock or to dump some bad salaries of their own.
