Michael Young On White Sox Radar

The always-secretive White Sox have been working hard in baseball's underground trying to obtain a top-of-the order hitter for their lineup. According to American League sources, the White Sox have had talks with the Texas Rangers about the availability of shortstop Michael Young. Young, multi-talented infielder and 5-time All-Star, is in the final year of a contract and will be a free agent at the end of the 2009 season. Texas has interest in Jermaine Dye, as a suitable replacement for Milton Bradley, who officially signed with the Cubs on January 8. Dye has one more year remaining on his contract before becoming a free agent.

In addition to Dye the Rangers have asked for former #1 pick, and Sox pitching prospect, Aaron Poreda. Poreda is considered the best young arm in the organization. And any trade involving Poreda would be a deal-breaker for White Sox. A White Sox source told me on Friday that at this time there are no legs to the proposed deal with Texas, however the Rangers are very interested in Dye and a reworking of this deal could happen sometime in the near future.

Young hasn't played 2B since 2003, so if we find a way to get him, we might be looking at Alexei playing 2B again in 2009.
