Report: Retirement coming for Michael Young?
Veteran free-agent infielder Michael Young is “strongly considering retirement” despite receiving interest from four teams this offseason, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports and MLB Network. The 37-year-old, a 14-year veteran, wants to spend more time with his wife and three sons, according to Rosenthal.
Young spent last season with the Phillies and Dodgers, playing mostly third base and first base and hitting .279/.335/.395 with eight home runs and 46 RBIs in 147 games. The seven-time All-Star played his first 13 seasons with the Rangers and is a .300 career batter, with 2,375 hits to his credit.
