Michael Young retires from baseball

Michael Young has chosen to retire from baseball rather then return for the 2014 season.

Young, 37, had drawn interest from a few teams and was reportedly being courted by the Los Angeles Dodgers to play second base.

Last season Young appeared in 147 games between the Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers finishing with a .279/.335/.395 line with eight home runs and 46 RBI. A seven-time All-Star, Young was the MVP of the 2006 All-Star game.
