Michael Young Has Reached Out To The Orioles

Michael Young Has Reached Out To The Orioles

PostPost #1 by osforlife » November 27th, 2013, 1:24 pm

Michael Young and his agents at the MVP Sports Group have reached out to the Orioles and Red Sox, according to Peter Gammons of the MLB Network (Twitter link). Gammons notes that Young is "interesting" to each team.

Young could present a logical fit for the Orioles as insurance for Manny Machado as Machado recovers from knee surgery. Baltimore also has uncertainty surrounding its second base and DH situations currently, though it's been years since Young played second base with any regularity.

No thank-you. His last two years have been awful, as he's accumulated a -3.3 WAR, per baseball-reference. He practically only offers positional flexibility at the corner infield positions, as he's played only 32 games at second base since 2003. He plays awful defense, is merely average with the bat, and provides no speed.
