According to reports emanating from Twitter, Michael Young is giving 'serious consideration to retirement'. 

Fox Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal tweeted Tuesday afternoon:

'Michael Young has interest from four teams, decent offers, but is strongly considering retirement.'

He went on to add:

'Young, 37, wants to spend more time at home with his wife and three sons. That would be his reason to retire.'

Young saw his opportunities restricted this past season at his home town team the LA Dodgers, with a batting average of .314 in his 21 games.

With these figures suggesting he still has something to offer there had been suggestions that the seven time All-Star would look to sign with someone else in order to gain a starting position.

But it seems that Young is edging towards calling a day on a career which has seen him win two World Series and log at least 550 plate appearances per season since 2001.
