Sources: Michael Young to Retire



    Michael Young spent time with three big-league clubs over the course of his 14-year MLB career, and now that career has reportedly come to an end.

    It's been widely speculated for a week or so now that the former Ranger great was contemplating retirement, and now, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, he's finished contemplating and will turn down three, what he called, "good" offers to instead retire and spend more time with his family.

    Young's current club, the Los Angeles Dodgers, was reportedly one of the teams to offer him a deal, and in recent days it had reportedly been down to the Dodgers or retirement.

    Young, 37, played 13 of his 14 big-league seasons in Arlington before being dealt to Philadelphia prior to last season and dealt to the Dodgers after the trade deadline.

    Young played every infield position for the Rangers over the course of his career and then was moved to a designated hitter/utility role before a bitter split from general manager Jon Daniels and the Rangers.

    He's a career .300 hitter, a seven-time all-star and led the league in hits twice and in batting average once, when he hit .331 in 2005.
