Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Michael Young will come off the bench for the team to spell 3B Juan Uribe when needed. Young can also play some first base. "I think he's a professional player that's got a chance to help us," said general manager Ned Colletti. "We've got a long way to go and, when you can add people this time of year who bring what he brings, you act. We've gone for it, we'll continue to go for it." Los Angeles will pay Young around $1 million of his $16 million salary. The team placed SP Josh Beckett (shoulder, neck) on the 60-day disabled list to make room for Young on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Young loses basically all of his value in mixed formats.

INF Kevin Frandsen and 1B/OF John Mayberry Jr. are also capable of playing the position. Minor league 3B Maikel Franco, who has recently started playing first base, remains a long-shot to be called up this season.
