In unexpected news, the Phillies and Dodgers have made a late August 31st trade. The Dodgers have acquired seven-time All-Star shortstop Michael Young from the Dodgers, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal. This news came out of nowhere. There were no reports to suggest that Michael Young was close to being dealt or that the Dodgers were interested. This deal was truly unexpected. Young, 36, waived his no-trade clause to make the deal. While Young may be getting older, he is still a great addition for the Dodgers. He is hitting .272 with eight home runs and 41 RBI's. He may not be the hitter he once was, but Young is a great locker room guy and a great teammate. Young is considered to be the ultimate pro. It is unknown what the Phillies received from the Dodgers for Young, so we can't tell how the Phillies did in this deal. The Phillies did unload an expiring contract and got something for Young, so that's a huge plus for them. Young will likely get most of the work over Juan Uribe at third base in Los Angeles and figures to be an instant upgrade for the Dodgers.
