On the other hand, the Dodgers were able to gain a player that is a great clubhouse guy, and can play the game of baseball very well. With a .276/.336/.395 three slash line, Young is still a pretty solid player at 36 years old, and will provide timely hitting off the bench for LA. Young has a -1.0 WAR, but will be backing up third baseman Juan Uribe, who has a 2.4 WAR. Young can also play first base, where Adrian Gonzalez currently sits, but can give him a day off without much lost.
This was a very good move for the Dodgers, as they are going all in to win the World Series this year. Young becomes a free agent at the end of this year, and although he may walk from LA, he will probably be able to find a new home for another contender (perhaps Texas?). But, for now, Young is playing in LA, for the team that is running away with the NL West crown.
