Young out of mix for possible 3B solution 6

Michael Young

If you were hoping for the Yankees to sign Michael Young to replace Alex Rodriguez in 2014–well, it’s not going to happen.

According to the Los Angeles Times, if Young wasn’t going to retire, he would only consider returning to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

“As far as baseball is concerned, the Dodgers are it for me.” Young said.

Although Brian Cashman has said the Yankees were most likely done spending, it was still a nice thought to have Michael Young in the fold with Kelly Johnson. The Yankees currently have Eduardo Nunez, Scott Sizemore, Russ Canzler (and many others) coming into Spring Training to compete for a chance to play third base.

If the Yankees are open to doing small deals, they could consider Jeff Baker (who is a free agent) on a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training. It wouldn’t hurt to see what some of the free agents that are left on the market can do before the Yankees are ready to commit.

    I really think the Yanks made a mistake letting Mark Reynolds go. He could have filled the whole at 3rd and at 1st for resting Tex , and should there be any physical issues. MR did pretty well filling in last year, and he wasn't much of a defensive liability. I think Yanks should try to get him back.
