Entering the All-Star break, it appeared that if the Philadelphia Phillies would be active at the trade deadline they would be buyers. However, the Phils have gotten off to a slow start to the second half of the season, leading Todd Zolecki of MLB.com to believe they will be inclined to trade Michael Young prior to the July 31 trade deadline. If they had continued their success coming out of the break, Zolecki thinks the Phillies would have retained veteran players such as Young, perhaps even pursuing roster upgrades at the expense of prospects. Instead, Philadelphia is riding an eight-game losing streak, moving them to seven games under the .500. At this point, Zolecki expects the Phillies to take what they can get for Young. The Texas Rangers have been one of the teams most frequently tied to the veteran infielder, but one source told Zolecki that Young is unlikely to be reunited with his former club this summer. Beyond the Rangers, the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles have all been tied to Young. While the Phillies could be resigned to trading Young, he has a no-trade clause in his contract that means he'd have to agree to be dealt before a move can take place. He's indicated that he'd be willing to waive the clause, and it would make sense that he'd be open to joining a contender for the home stretch of the current season.
