Michael Young Trade Tree

Michael Young was traded to the Phillies over the weekend, ending his eleven and a half year stint in the Rangers organization. Young leaves Texas as their all time leader in several categories: games, plate appearances, at bats, runs, hits, doubles, triples, sac flies, total bases and grounded into double plays. Looking back, I had forgotten that Young was not originally drafted by the Rangers. He was acquired in a trade deadline deal for Esteban Loaiza, who himself was acquired from Pittsburgh in a deadline deal two years prior.

For the Phillies, they fill their hole at third base with a past-his-prime player who doesn’t field very well anymore. He should fit right in.
