Phillies Acquire Michael Young
By Mike Axisa [December 8 at 12:49pm CST]
The Phillies have acquired Michael Young from the Rangers according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today (Twitter links). Young will receive $1.2MM in benefits in exchange for waiving his no-trade clause, but Nightengale says he told the Phillies he did not want an extension (Twitter links). The $1.2MM accounts for the state tax difference.
