There are multiple teams interested in acquiring free agent Michael Young, but it appears retirement may offer the best option to the veteran infielder.
Young, who finished the season with the Los Angeles Dodgers is said to have offers from at least four teams willing to give an opportunity this season, but the 37-year-old wants to spend more time with his family and is ‘strongly’ considering retirement:
Sources: Michael Young has interest from four teams, decent offers, but is strongly considering retirement. Young, 37, wants to spend more time at home with his wife and three sons. That would be his reason to retire.
Young, a long time member of the Texas Rangers is still getting it done offensively, hitting .276 last season with the Philadelphia Phillies before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers where he hit .314 in 21 regular season games.
There’s no word on who the interested teams are, though in recent weeks we’ve seen the Milwaukee Brewers along with the Dodgers express interest in Young.
