Michael Young back with Rangers as GM assistant

🕐 1 min read

 

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Texas Rangers career hits leader Michael Young has been appointed as a special assistant to the general manager.

Before the announcement Wednesday, Young had already been involved in the Rangers’ managerial search last month.

 

Young played the first 12 of his 13 major league seasons in Texas, and is the team’s career leader with 1,823 games and 2,230 hits. The Rangers traded Young to Philadelphia after the 2012 season, and he split 2013 with the Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers before announcing his retirement last January in a news conference at the Rangers’ ballpark.

 

The 38-year-old Young will work with general manager Jon Daniels and his staff in all areas of baseball operations. That includes player evaluation and player development in the major and minor leagues.
