Dodgers Inquire On Michael Young

From Dan Graziano of the Newark Star-Ledger:

The Dodgers continue to look everywhere for a shortstop, and tons of names have come up in connection with their search. They don't seem likely to land the Pirates' Jack Wilson, but they're scouring other organizations for options, having touched base with Toronto about John McDonald, the Yankees about Alberto Gonzales, the Twins about Adam Everett and even the Rangers about Michael Young, though it's unclear whether or why Young would be available.

Young is new to the discussion.  The 31 year-old shortstop is hitting .298/.345/.421 in 469 plate appearances this year.  He's currently dealing with a fractured ring finger.  His five-year, $80MM extension was signed in March of '07 but doesn't kick in until next year.  Even if the Rangers would listen on Young, could the Dodgers take on such a contract?
