Rangers' Michael Young Traded To Phillies

Deal Has Impact On Red Sox
Multiple sources are reporting that the long-rumored trade of Texas lifer Michael Young to the Philadelphia Phillies is done. Details will be announced this afternoon—but it looks like relief pitcher Josh Lindblom and prospect Lisalverto Bonilla will go to Arlington. This could have impact on the Red Sox, since this move may partly free up the Rangers to re-sign Josh Hamilton. This could, however, work the other way if Texas picks up most or all of Young's salary.
