@JeffPassan: How badly do the Phillies want Michael Young? Source says "they are recruiting him like he's the No. 1 pick in the country."
I mean, if your the Phillies your banking on him bouncing back and being somewhat productive. And depending on how much salary the Rangers are eating combined with the 3B market, it might not be as bad a move as initially thought.
The problem they run into is so far they've only added "If's" to their lineup when they needed some steady run producers.
They are hoping Revere can continue to develop his bat and give them a decent OBP next season, hoping Young's last season wasn't a severe decline rather a bad year.
And if they are done(ie Ruf and Brown the corner OF spots), then they are further hoping one of those guys steps up offensively.
