Young is not likely to officially waive his no-trade clause without some sort of compensation. The Rangers must also still gain approval of MLB commissioner Bud Selig due to the large amount of cash (more than $10 million) the Rangers are sending Philadelphia. As with all deals, it would not be official until Young passes a physical for Philadelphia.
The Rangers will receive 25-year-old RHP Josh Lindblom and a minor leaguer, believed to be 22-year-old RHP Lisalverto Bonilla.
If the Rangers send over that $10 million, this sounds pretty good for the Phillies in theory.
Young’s numbers have slipped because he can’t hit RHP anymore. Ryan Howard’s numbers have slipped because he can’t hit LHP anymore. Some sort of time-sharing agreement could potentially be arranged under which, for the price of a single overpaid first baseman, they get not only a first baseman who can hit RHP (Ryan Howard) but also a first baseman who can hit LHP (Michael Young).
for his generous support.
