PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Youngs leadership skills were as attractive to the Philadelphia Phillies as his hitting ability. The Phillies acquired the seven-time All-Star infielder from the Texas Rangers for two relief pitchers, filling a void at third base. The deal was announced Sunday, a day after Young agreed to waive his no-trade clause. "Michael brings a lot to our team, not just on the field, but off it as well," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "He has been one of the premiere hitters in the American League for a decade and is someone who has a tremendous presence in the clubhouse. We couldnt be happier that he has accepted the assignment to come to the Phillies." Young is known for being an unselfish player and a true professional -- two qualities Philadelphias front office values in a player. "He has all the elements were looking for," Amaro said. "First of all, the makeup is extraordinary. Hes the ultimate team player. He knows how to play baseball. Hes a winning baseball player. Hes had the opportunity to be in big games in the playoffs and he just fits real well." The Rangers get right-hander Josh Lindblom and minor league righty Lisalverto Bonilla. The Rangers also will pay a significant portion of Youngs salary for 2013. Young is due to earn $16 million. Reports m about $6 million. "If there was crying in baseball, I guess I would cry," Rangers manager Ron Washington said of losing Young. "This is a very, very tough situation. Hes always been my go-to guy in the six years Ive been here, and hes not only done a lot in that respect for me, but leadership that he brought to the clubhouse and the leadership that he brought on the field, and the leadership that he had in the community is something that we sorely will miss." Young batted .277 with eight homers and 67 RBIs in 2012, a down year for him. He hit .288 with runners in scoring position and .333 against left-handed pitchers. He made 40 starts at first base, 25 at third base, 14 at second base and four at shortstop. "I think thats just part of the process of being a Major League player," Amaro said. "You dont have a great year every year. Hes had some years where he hit .280 and others where he hit .330. But at the same time, even when his numbers arent extraordinary, and they were still pretty darn good last year, maybe better than anybody we had on our club, but the fact of the matter is hes a professional hitter. Hes a guy who we know will strive to be the best player he can be. And even when hes not having productive hits, I know hes the kind of guy who makes productive outs. So theres a lot of pluses to this guy." From 2003-11, Young hit at least .300 seven times and averaged 17 homers and 90 RBIs. A former AL Gold Glove winner at shortstop, Young hasnt played third base regularly since 2010. Seven Phillies started at third base last year, including often-injured former All-Star Placido Polanco. Young was originally selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the fifth round of the 1997 amateur draft. He was traded to the Rangers on July 19, 2000 for pitcher Esteban Loaiza. Young has a .301 average with 177 home runs and 984 RBIs in 1,823 major league games -- all with Texas. He is the club leader in games, at-bats (7,399), runs (1,085), hits (2,230), doubles (415), triples (55) and total bases (3,286). Young has a .248 average with 3, homers, 10 doubles and 19 RBIs in 34 post-season games. Young began his career at second base with the Rangers. He moved to shortstop to accommodate Alfonso Soriano, who was acquired in the trade that sent Alex Rodriguez to the New York Yankees. Young won his only Gold Glove at shortstop in 2008 and then moved to third base to make room for Elvis Andrus in 2009. He played two seasons at third before moving to designated hitter and a utility role after Adrian Beltre arrived in Texas. The emergence of rookie infielder Jurickson Profar meant even less opportunity for Young to play to in the field this season. Profar, who turns 20 in February, is the Rangers top prospect played second base and shortstop in nine games down the stretch last season and had a hit in his only at-bat in an AL wild-card loss to Baltimore. "Both on and off the field, this guy is one of the most accomplished players in the history of the franchise and been part of the last few years where they were basically the best teams in the history of the franchise," Rangers GM Jon Daniels said. "As we looked at it, given the makeup of our roster, some of our internal options, we felt this was the right way to go."

MINNEAPOLIS -- The American League wild card standings show that the Tampa Bay Rays are solidly in the mix to return to the post-season. The Rays, however, have higher aspirations. Tampa Bay has made it very clear that it wants to win the American League East. The Rays 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night was the latest example of why they believe that making up six games and catching the New York Yankees is possible. Behind another strong pitching performance from David Price, a pair of home runs from B.J. Upton, and a homer from Matt Joyce, the Rays stretched their winning streak to five and won for the 10th time in 13 games. It is no surprise that the Rays are making a surge because they are a combined 78-43 in August since 2008. "We want to get into October, first and foremost, but we want to hang another banner," said Price, who moved into a share of the major league lead in victories with Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels and R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets. "Were playing our best baseball right now that we have all season. Weve put ourselves in position." Rays manager Joe Maddon understands what this winning streak and two weeks of good baseball can mean. "When you win five in a row, then you show up and you feel like youre going to win," Maddon said. "Thats, obviously, a good thing and that does turn into winning more often. It just does. "This is not about just making the playoffs and this is not about just being a wild card team. This is about winning our division." Having Price (15-4) continue a summer of strong starts certainly helps in that quest. Price held the Twins to two runs and seven hits in seven innings. He has worked at least seven innings in 10 consecutive starts and hasnt lost since June 13. He is 7-0 with a 2.10 ERA in that span. "He wasnt the best he can be. You get kind of spoiled watching him as often as we do," Maddon said. "But he was good." Part of what has the Rays optimistic is that Price, who never faced more than five batters in an inning, doesnt have to be perfect to win. The Rays led 3-0 before Price threw his first pitch as Tampa Bay didnt need much time -- or many pitches -- to jump to an early lead against Nick Blackburn (4-8). After Desmond Jennings singled to lead off the game, Upton immediately followed with a homer to left-centre field. Joyce, the third batter of the game, then hit an upper-deck home run to right field that gave the Rays a 3-0 lead seven pitches into the game. "Those first three guys kind of ambushed me," Blackburn said. "Came out, wasnt quite where I wanted to be location-wise, and it pretty much cost us." While BBlackburn settled down, he was again unable to pitch deep into the game.dddddddddddd Blackburn, who gave up four runs and 11 hits in six-plus innings, has gotten through the seventh inning only once in 18 starts this season. The only time the Twins threatened against Price was in the second when they strung together three hits to start the inning. Josh Willingham scored on Darin Mastroiannis infield single, but Price induced Dozier to ground into a double play, and got Drew Butera to ground out to end the inning. Upton stretched Tampa Bays lead to 4-1 with a solo homer to centre field in the fifth. It was Uptons third multihomer game in the majors. Dozier cut the Twins deficit to 4-2 in the fifth with his sixth homer of the season. The Twins had a chance to cut into Tampa Bays lead in the seventh after Morneau and Mastroianni singled. But Price, who struck out five and didnt walk a batter, answered by striking out Dozier and Ryan Doumit to end the inning. Joel Peralta pitched a scoreless eighth inning for Tampa Bay. Fernando Rodney faced the heart of the Twins lineup and recorded a 1-2-3 ninth to earn his 35th save in 36 opportunities. "Were playing some pretty good baseball," Upton said. "The pitchings been there for us, and the biggest thing is that the bats are starting to pick up for us. Thats exactly what we need now with a month and a half left in the season." But can the Rays catch the Yankees? They believe it is worth a try. "Theres too much baseball to be played to give up on winning our division," Upton said. "We all saw what happened last year. A lot can happen in the next two months." NOTES: Maddon used the same lineup on Saturday as he did on Friday. It was only the fourth time this season Tampa Bay had identical lineups in consecutive games. ... Maddon said he will decide whether to play 3B Evan Longoria on Sunday morning. Longoria, who missed more than three full months with a partially torn left hamstring, has played five consecutive games upon his return from the disabled list. ... RH James Shields (10-7, 4.08 ERA) will start Sunday for the Rays. He has given up only one run and five hits over his past two starts. Minnesota will counter with Scott Diamond (10-5, 2.91 ERA), its most consistent pitcher recently. ... Rodney set a Rays franchise record with his 20th consecutive save. ... Twins OF Denard Span wasnt in the lineup. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he wanted to give Span a day off, but Prices success against left-handed hitters was also a factor. ... With their eighth sellout of the year, the Twins passed the 2 million mark in attendance. ... Upton extended his hitting streak to eight games. ' ' '
