Michael Young says he's "completely comfortable" in the Texas Rangers clubhouse after asking for an offseason trade that his team unsuccessfully tried to pull off.

A new first baseman's mitt is in Young's locker. There were smiles on his face when he joked around with his teammates.

He is the longest-tenured Ranger going into his 11th season. He said that what happened in the offseason has no affect on his relationship with his teammates or preparing for the season.

Now the primary designated hitter and utility infielder, Young played first base in a game for the first time ever Monday, when he took only one throw in four innings. He also had a double and triple.
