If the Texas Rangers are serious about trading Michael Young, the Colorado Rockies are interested.
The Rockies and Rangers have been in contact about the possibility of a deal involving Young, according to major league sources. If a deal were made, the Rockies would move Young back to second base.
Texas is believed to be checking with numerous teams to see what kind of interest Young would generate on the trade market, and the Rangers have indicated that they'd assume a portion of the $48 million Young's guaranteed over the next three years.
The Rockies and Rangers have had only initial contact on the matter. They haven't discussed players the Rockies would give up, nor have they dealt with how much of the remaining money on Young's contract the Rangers would pick up.
Young does have the right to specify only eight teams to which he can be traded, and it's not known whether the Rockies are among the eight teams.
