Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Rangers are not working to bring back Michael Young at the deadline and the Phillies infielder is likely staying put.

The Rangers are no longer looking to acquire Phillies infielder Michael Young, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Yesterday, Rosenthal reported that Young was willing to accept trades to the Boston Red Sox and to his former club, the Texas Rangers. With this latest report, it appears far less likely that the 36-year-old will be traded, reports Jayson Stark of ESPN. Young is still with the Phillies as they prepare to face the Giants tonight at Citizens Bank Park, but he is not taking batting practice with the team, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Young is one a limited number of veteran infielders currently thought to be on the market, but with a $16M salary for this season, his high price tag makes him less attractive to many teams. Because of that high salary, he may be a top candidate to be moved after the deadline, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reminds us.

Young is hitting .279/.345/.411 in 403 plate appearances with the Phillies this season.
