Source: Yankees consider Young along with Reynolds for 3B option

Michael Young 2

As everyone continues to wait for decision in Alex Rodriguez‘s appeal case, the Yankees are thinking ahead in case A-Rod is out for an extended amount of time.

A source told ESPN New York that the Yankees were considering re-signing Mark Reynolds or signing Michael Young should the ban be upheld in A-Rod’s case.

If the Yankees re-acquire Reynolds, Reynolds could form a powerful platoon with Kelly Johnson although there wouldn’t be much defense between the two. If the Yankees acquire Young, he would be a better defensive third basemen but there won’t be much pop in his bat; he hit 8 HR’s with 46 RBI’s in 147 games in 2013.

The Yankees most likely won’t make a move concerning third base once they hear the decision on A-Rod’s case, and they might wait until the Masahiro Tanaka Sweepstakes are over. ¬†But it never hurts to be prepared if A-Rod ends up missing a significant amount of time.

    Young is defensively better as Reynolds is offensively better I say Reynolds they could use offense and defence Enduaro Nunez could play defence for 40 percent as Reynolds will Nast a few out of the park!

    So what you are saying is Young gets at least as many homers as arod, if not more.

  3. WHO CARES ABOUT HOME RUNS WE HAD SCOTT BROSIUS AND CHARLIE HAYES AND WADE BOGGS AT 3RD WHEN WE WERE A DYNASTY!

    Young could work but I see more of a return in Mark Reynolds. If Mark Texaria is still not 100 percent ready Reynolds can fill in there too.
