NASHVILLE (CBSSPORTS.COM) – Insofar as the Michael Young-to-Philadelphia rumors go, CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman has the latest on his twitter feed.

Word is, getting closer to agreement to get michael young. Belief is tex would need to pay $10M of his $16M

It’s not surprising that the Rangers are going to have to pitch in cash to make this happen. However, considering Young’s declining skills and manager Ron Washington’s punishing over-reliance on him last season, it’ll be worth it from Texas’s standpoint, regardless of whom they get in return.

As for the Phillies, this would be a highly dubious addition. Young is a bad defender these days, and he’s coming off perhaps his worst season at the plate.
