Michael Young said he’s following the Texas Rangers injury situation like everyone else.
It seems like the Rangers have an injury, big or small, each week.
Young retired from baseball in January with a career .300 batting average, 185 home runs, 1,030 RBI, and 2,375 hits. The seven-time All-Star won the American League batting title in 2005 and an AL Gold Glove at shortstop in 2008. He made World Series appearances with the Rangers in 2010 and ’11.
The prospects, however, of Young coming out of retirement to bring some veteran presence in the Rangers’ lineup remains remote at best.
Then again, how many more injuries can the Rangers take?
“I’m good with where I’m at,” Young said. “I’m happy. I had a long run.”
Young recently participated in the Dirk Nowitzki Heroes Celebrity Baseball weekend in Frisco.
