Cody Asche in, Michael Young out?

There’s some major news out of Philadelphia today. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports says reported that the Phillies have called up Cody Asche from the minor leagues, which would preclude a trade of Michael Young. The report has since been confirmed by Todd Zolecki.

The New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox were the teams showing the most interest over the past month so it’s likely he winds up with one of them. The question is does he wind up part of a much larger trade including Cliff Lee?

UPDATE 1:20 PM EST: Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that Michael Young will only approved a trade to the Texas Rangers. Guess he’s going back home.
