Cliff Lee, The Rangers have been to try to re-sign pitcher Cliff Lee, but a wildfire rumors about the third baseman Michael Young has continued to roar through the winter meetings at Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort on Wednesday.
The Rangers insist they are not trading with other youth teams. They insist that there are other teams that arise about it. They keep saying they have serious doubts about Young being traded at all during the offseason, despite the rumors.
“It’s the byproduct of having these meetings,” the Chief Ranger Jon Daniels said. “Ninety-nine percent of players have asked about different conversations. I’m not surprised when a big name to run with. ”
Daniels has not spoken to young people. Daniels spoke to his agent, Dan Lozano, and said it was other clubs who called on young people.
“They ask him,” GM said. “I told him that’s what it was. I told him I was going to keep him informed if something changes.”
Daniels was asked if he expected something to change.
“I’m not, but … I do not speak in absolute terms,” said Daniels. “We will consider all the ways to improve the club. Do understand trade Michael Young? No, it’s not likely.”
Rockies first called the Rangers in the early evening on Tuesday and asked about young people. The conversation was brief and the names were not exchanged. Young is about to make and $ 48 million over the next three years and the Rockies have made it clear they could not cope without Texas picking up much of the treatment. That is why the conversation did not go very far.
But the story filtered Tuesday night and the Rangers have not stopped the flow of rumors. It was reported Wednesday that the Rangers have talked to the youth in the Rockies, Angels, Cardinals and Dodgers.
Texas has no other third baseman to replace youth. The club would probably get one in a trade or go to the free agent market. Adrian Beltre, who is represented by Scott Boras, is the best player of basic free-agent third parties to the contract.
“We’re open to discussions with all teams at Adrian,” Boras said. “We’ve been through a number of negotiations with a number of teams. There were many willing participants. ”
Beltre hit .321 with 28 homers and 102 RBIs for the Red Sox season after reaching last 0265 with eight homers and 44 RBIs with the Mariners in 2009. Beltre, 30, is also a two-time Gold Glove and an excellent third baseman.
Young hit .291 with 21 homers and 91 RBIs this season at the helm of the Rangers to their first World Series appearance in their history. Young is not considered a good defensive Beltre, but he is the captain of the Texas team unofficial team leader and iconic player.
