Report: Michael Young Would Waive No-Trade Clause For New York Yankees

Yesterday, it was reported that Michael Young would waive his no-trade clause in order to be traded to the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox, who landed starting pitcher Jake Peavy, seem to be off the board for Young and it seems that although they really like Young, no rumors have been reported.

Another team, however, may earn the acceptance of Young. The New York Yankees have been reported to be a team that the Phillies' third baseman would waive his no-trade clause for.

Young is hitting .279 with 8 home runs and 34 RBI in 99 games this season - including a two-run home run in last night's 7-3 win over San Francisco.

There is less than an hour and a half left until teams are able to trade players without waivers.
