The Dodgers won’t be able to start Michael Young at second base on opening day if they decide Alexander Guerrero isn’t ready to play in the major leagues by then.
Young, 37, will retire from baseball, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke under the condition of anonymity.
The seven-time All-Star said over the weekend that he was deciding between playing for the Dodgers and retiring to spend more time with his three sons.
“I want to be around my sons,” Young said. “I want to make sure they get what they need from their father.”
