The Philadelphia Phillies have announced three names that are definitely off the trade market in Domonic Brown, Chase Utley, and Cole Hamels. However, the rumored Michael Young could get traded later on Tuesday as Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Pasan has indicated. Source: Phillies plan on calling up 3B Cody Asche. Points to Michael Young being traded today. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 30, 2013 The call-up of third baseman Cody Asche before Wednesday's non-waiver trade deadline makes a Michael Young trade all the more likely. The Yankees and Red Sox have looked for a right-handed hitting third baseman for quite some time, and it looks less and less likely that Alex Rodriguez will fill that role in New York even after getting activated off the disabled list. That makes Young more attractive to the Yankees, but general manager Ruben Amaro feels that he may not get enough in return for him. Baltimore and Texas have also asked about Young, but MLB.com's Todd Zolecki indicates that "the Rangers and Young will not be reuniting." Young also has a no-trade clause and has not indicated if he will waive it for a trade. He likes the loyalty that Amaro showed him earlier in the season when Young dealt with his son's serious illness. Young stated that he would discuss any possible trades with Amaro before anyone else. With Asche coming up to likely play third base, it appears that Michael Young could possibly find a new home as early as today although that is not certain.
