Veteran infielder Michael Young said that he hasn’t decided whether to retire or return for another season; however, he did say that if he does play that it will likely be with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Young came to the Dodgers via trade last August and hit .314 in 21 games with the team before going 1-for-10 in the postseason. He would likely return in a bench role and fill-in starter around the infield, as well as provide a strong veteran presence in the locker room. A decision will be made before Spring Training and the Dodgers may end up with their infielder.
After losing out on Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, the team is still in the market for a starting pitcher and have now been rumored to have interest in right-hander Ervin Santana. Signing Santana would cause the Dodgers to lose a first-round draft pick, which has limited the market for the former Kansas City Royal.
The team has now been linked to Bronson Arroyo and Santana, but Arroyo may still be the better short-term option for the rotation.
