Cubs remain interested in Rangers infielder Michael Young

The Cubs still have interest in acquiring Rangers disgruntled infielder Michael Young, according to the Boston Globe. Young has been pushed out of the infield by the addition of Adrian Beltre at third base, but was nice enough to remain quiet during the process to help the Rangers land the coveted third baseman. 

However, once they signed him and it was clear Young's time would be limited in the DH spot, he voiced his displeasure and publicly requested a trade. The closest deal to getting struck was with the Rockies, but the final details could not be worked out.

The Cubs have remained in the mix throughout the whole process, they have the money to afford him, and the prospects that would make the Rangers pay a majority of his remaining 48 million over the next three years.
