Michael Young rocks the flutterball

Michael Young.jpgCan’t say I’ve ever been a big Michael Young fan, but that could change:

Young wasn’t going to sit around and do nothing on a cool Sunday morning on the Rangers’ back fields.

So he took the mound and beckoned catcher Emerson Frostad to get in his
crouch. Veteran catcher Toby Hall stood in the batter’s box and Young
let it fly. No radar gun around but a serious popping in Frostad’s
glove as Young brought the heat . . . After throwing a dozen fastballs, Young broke out the knuckleball. Seriously, Young can throw a knuckleball with little rotation and definite movement.

This kind of stuff is awesome. At least until the exact moment that you have to put your starting third baseman on the DL due to a sore elbow.
