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.
