You'd have like to haven seen Young play out his career with the Rangers. Solid player who never seemed to get the attention or appreciation he deserved.

now he would be a phillies favorite player in the lineup, should young get injuried more often due to a increased playing time?? the coin its in the air and the weight can lean either way though,,

the phillies could had done the right move,, and at the same time they could have added another injury-prone player to their roster,,,

Young will be okay for 130-140 games. He needs rest.

No DH in the NL. That's not going to work well for him.
