Description: Infielder Michael Young is contemplating retirement. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports
Insight: The 37-year-old is thinking about leaving the game to spend more time with his family. Young hit a respectable .279 last season so he still has a little left in the tank.
 
9/1/2013 8:47:00 AM
Description: The Dodgers acquired Michael Young from the Phillies late Saturday night.
Insight: Young will serve as a backup at the corners behind Juan Uribe and Adrian Gonzalez, though we could definitely see him overtaking Uribe at third base.
 
8/30/2013 9:43:00 PM
Description: Even after going 10-for-21 (.476) over his last five games, Michael Young is hitting .234 in August.
Insight: Young started out 12-for-73 (.164) this month. With little power, little speed and a .272 average, Young doesn't do much for fantasy owners.
 
8/28/2013 10:35:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia third baseman Michael Young is a career .571 hitter (8-for-14) versus Mets starter Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Insight: Young has a pair of two-hit games in the first games of the series with New York and figures to have a good day on Wednesday.
 
8/19/2013 3:54:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia third baseman Michael Young is not in Monday's game against Colorado due to a sore left Achilles.
Insight: Rookie Cody Ashe (.185 batting average, 580 OPS) will likely get the start at third base.
 
8/19/2013 11:55:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia third baseman Michael Young is questionable for Monday's game against Colorado with a sore left Achilles.
Insight: Rookie Cody Ashe (.185 batting average, 580 OPS) would get the start at third base if Young can't go.
 
8/18/2013 11:22:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia third baseman Michael Young will sit out Sunday's series finale with the Dodgers because of a sore ankle.
Insight: Young's poor numbers against Ricky Nolasco (1-for-12 lifetime) may have also factored in the decision. Rookie Cody Ashe will make his 14th start at third base.
 
Cold8/17/2013 8:20:00 PM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young had to come out of Saturday's game against the Dodgers because of a sore ankle. SOURCE: Todd Zolecki, MLB.com
Insight: Young has been showing his age lately. In August, he's hitting just .196 with only three extra base hits. John McDonald (.096, 1 HR, 4 RBI) is filling in for him at third base.
 
8/9/2013 10:21:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia third baseman Michael Young sat out Thursday's game because of hamstring tightness and is questionable for Friday's game against Washington.
Insight: Young (.276, 8 HR, 36 RBI, 42 runs) has only missed eight games, but when you're in the latter part of your career, injuries do tend to pop up a little more frequently. It also takes longer to heal at this age, which puts Young's status in question for Friday's series opener against Washington.

Description: Philadelphia third baseman Michael Young was supposed to play Thursday against the Cubs but instead he's sitting out because of hamstring tightness. SOURCE: Matt Gelb, Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: Oh, to be a 36-year-old Major League Baseball player. Young has been pretty durable this year (he's only missed eight games) but when you're in the latter part of your career like Young is, injuries do tend to pop up a little more frequently. It also takes longer to heal at this age, which puts Young's status in question for Friday's series opener against Washington.
 
7/31/2013 10:08:00 AM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young could be traded before Wednesday's deadline and he might be replaced in the starting lineup by Cody Asche even if he stays with Philly, but if he starts Wednesday night against the Giants he'll have a favorable matchup.
Insight: Young has gone 15-for-33 (.455) with three doubles, three homers and three walks against Giants starter Chad Gaudin. Young is hitting .279 with eight homers this season.
 
7/30/2013 10:34:00 PM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored Tuesday against San Francisco.
Insight: It might have been his final game with the Phillies. The team just brought up third base prospect Cody Asche and will try to trade Young before Wednesday's deadline.
 
7/19/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young went 1-for-4 with a three-run blast Friday against the New York Mets.
Insight: Young is just one homer shy of his total for all of 2012. He has had a decent season, but with little power, no speed and mediocre contributions in runs and RBI, Young is not a good fantasy option.
 
7/16/2013 9:27:00 AM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young is apparently an "in demand" player if Philadelphia decides to become sellers at the trade deadline.
Insight: Both the Yankees and the Red Sox are said to be interested. Young's fantasy value would significantly rise in the Boston lineup which has already scored 127 more runs than the Phillies.
 
Hot6/22/2013 12:35:00 PM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young is 6-for-8 with a pair of homers versus Mets starter Dillon Gee.
Insight: Young is batting .353 in June and this favorable matchup should keep him swinging a hot bat. Start him.
 
Hot6/15/2013 10:29:00 AM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young has only faced Colorado starter Tyler Chatwood six times, but he's banged out five hits and four RBI in the half dozen at-bats.
Insight: Young is on a six-game hitting streak, batting .423 over the span and this favorable matchup should keep him swinging a hot bat. Start him.
 
6/4/2013 2:53:00 PM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young is hitless in nine career at-bats versus Miami starter Ricky Nolasco, but is in the starting lineup, according to Phillies beat writer Ryan Lawrence.
Insight: Young returned from bereavement leave on Monday, but did not start. The career .300 hitter is in the midst of a 1-for-26 (.038) slump that has dropped his average from .296 to .258.
 
6/4/2013 10:13:00 AM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young is hitless in nine career at-bats versus Miami starter Ricky Nolasco.
Insight: Young returned from bereavement leave on Monday, but did not start. The career .300 hitter is batting an un-Young like .258 and not been a productive fantasy option this season and Tuesday likely won't help his numbers.
 
6/3/2013 11:38:00 AM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young is expected to return from bereavement leave on Monday.
Insight: Young broke up a five-game hitless streak with a home run on Tuesday night. The career .300 hitter is batting an un-Young like .258 and not been a productive fantasy option this season.
 
5/29/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: Phillies third baseman Michael Young has been place on the bereavement list.
Insight: Young broke up a five-game hitless streak with a home run on Tuesday night. The career .300 hitter is batting an un-Young like .258 and not been a productive fantasy option this season. Freddy Galvis will start at third base on Wednesday.
