Jon Daniels and Nolan Ryan have spoken with various media members about Michael Young’s situation:
JD says Young had a “change of heart” about his new role. #Rangers
Jon Daniels: Rangers Michael Young has requested a trade.
The Young trade request came about a week ago.
Rangers president Nolan Ryan: Young’s mindset is best interest of career, better to move on and play position on daily basis.
Ryan tried to assure Michael Young that he didn’t think the move was a step down.
Jon Daniels: If we can accommodate him and upgrade our club, we will seek to do that.
JD: Nothing is on the horizon as far as trade.
Rangers want to give Mitch Moreland a chance to establish himself at first base.
