Young requests trade from Rangers, who are willing

Michael Young has asked the Texas
Rangers to trade him. General manager Jon Daniels says the AL
champions are willing to accommodate that request though "nothing
is imminent."
Daniels said Monday that the Rangers will trade their career
hits leader only if such a deal would improve the team.
After signing free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre last month,
the Rangers said they expected Young to become the primary
designated hitter and serve in a utility role where he could fill
in at every infield position.
Young initially agreed, but Daniels says Young has since had a
"change of heart" about those plans.
Young, a .300 career hitter going into his 11th season, is the
Rangers' longest-tenured player.
