CLEA - In acquiring veteran Michael Young in an offseason trade with the Texas Rangers, the Phillies attempted to fill two voids: an everyday third baseman, and a reliable, versatile right-handed bat in the lineup.
Young is a lifetime .301 hitter with seven All-Star game appearances on his resume.
And the Phils hope he'll provide them with more of the same in 2013. Jim Vaughn has more.
