Michael Young trade to Phillies could happen Saturday

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Seven time All-Star Michael Young has reportedly agreed to waive his no trade clause to head to the Philadelphia Phillies. The trade could be completed Saturday.

The end of the Michael Young era as a Texas Ranger could be coming to an end as soon as this weekend. Adam Morris of Lone Star Ball tweets that MLB.com writer T.R. Sullivan is reporting Young will be traded to the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday.

Young has a no trade clause and hadn't made it known whether he'd consent the move to Philadelphia. It's hasn't been made immediately clear what the Phillies would send back in a deal for Young, but the two teams were actively engaged in talks throughout this week's Winter meetings.

The Young trade is just one of several conversations the Rangers were rumored to be involved in. They were also reportedly heavily involved in trade talks for Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton and have been also been linked to free agent pitcher Zack Greinke. It's also still unclear whether the team will bring back outfielder Josh Hamilton.

Young, a seven time All-Star, has spent his entire 12-year career with the Rangers.
