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.
Sources: Michael Young to retire. Had three good offers, including from #Dodgers, but wanted to be with his family.
