Michael Young Not Seeking Trade

Rangers infielder Michael Young appeared on ESPN's Mike & Mike show today, and he's backed off from his February trade request:

"At this point now, my thoughts are completely on the Texas Rangers.  That's the way it should be. I'm not going to sit here and say I want to leave a team that's 9-1, a team that went to the World Series last year. Right now a trade is the furthest thing from my mind. Once the season rolls around, it's time to play baseball. I'm not going to concern myself with things I can't control."

So far this year, Young has played seven games at DH, two at second base, and one at first base for the Rangers.

The Dodgers, who lost shortstop Rafael Furcal to a broken thumb last night, "recently checked back" with the Rangers on Young according to Yahoo's Tim Brown (Twitter link).  However, Brown says the price hasn't dropped and the Dodgers passed.
