Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have offered Michael Young a long-term contract extension. Neither the team nor Young nor his agent are commenting, which is as it should be. Young has made it clear that he doesn’t want negotiations to continue once he reports to camp — which will be today or tomorrow — and exposing the talks publicly would do nothing but serve as a needless distraction. Everybody involved, happily, seems to understand that.

As I’ve said a few times lately, even though Young is under club control for two more years, this is a huge, huge thing, on several fronts.

More as developments warrant.
