Michael Young won’t be heading to Boston — or anywhere besides Arlington, Texas, for that matter. The Phillies third baseman, who has been rumored to be on the trading block in recent weeks, will only approve a trade to the Texas Rangers, according to Ken Rosenthal. Young, 36, played his first 13 seasons in Texas where he hit .301 in over 1,800 games played.  He was also named to seven All-Star teams as a member of the Rangers. He’s hitting .277 with seven homers and 32 RBIs for the Phillies in 98 games this season. Jeff Passan reports that the Phillies have called up Cody Asche meaning Young will likely be traded. If both reports are true, Young will be heading to Texas at some point Tuesday or Wednesday. Sources: #Phillies’ Michael Young only approve trade to #Rangers. Has full no-trade clause.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2013 That last tweet should read, #Phillies’ Michael Young only WILL approve trade to #Rangers. Left out a word. Again: Full no-trade clause.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2013 Source: Phillies plan on calling up 3B Cody Asche. Points to Michael Young being traded today.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 30, 2013 Filed under: Headlines, MLB, MLB Trade Deadline, Texas Rangers
