The Twins are on the list of teams for which Rangers infielder Michael Young would approve a trade, but there is no chance that's going to happen now, a major league source said today.

This actually isn't the first time this scenario has come up. The Rangers and Twins have discussed a potential Young trade in previous years, but it wasn't a good fit financially for the Twins in years past, and certainly isn't now, with three years, $48 million remaining on his contract.

Young is a well-respected player, but many in the industry view him as vastly overpaid. The most likely outcome to this is that he'll remain with the Rangers, accepting a role as a roving infielder and DH who will still be in the lineup almost every day, just not at the same position.
