Michael Young Trade Rumors Come To Screeching Halt

On Tuesday, seemingly out of nowhere, we caught wind of some developing Michael Young trade rumors. While team president Nolan Ryan shot the idea down, later on there was talk that the Rangers and Rockies were having conversations about the veteran infielder.

But you can forget about anything happening here, as the Rangers have told Young he will not be traded. It's one thing to tell the press that you're not shopping a guy, but it's quite another to straight-up tell that guy that he's not going to be dealt. For the Rangers to go back on their word now would be pretty low.

Young is an established supporting hitter, but he is 34 years old and under contract for three more seasons at $16 million per.
