Michael Young could play first base

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers manager Ron Washington said Wednesday that the club plans on working out Michael Young at first base during spring training so that he can play all of the infield positions as part of his super utility/DH role.

"We are certainly going to give him an opportunity in spring training to work out there and you probably will see him get some opportunities there," Washington said.

Washington said Young would not play the outfield.

"He’s going to be my DH and he’ll get opportunities to move around the infield," Washington said. "He'll get his at-bats and get a chance to be very versatile."
