Young exits after second with sore left ankle

PHILADELPHIA -- Third baseman Michael Young left Saturday's game against the Dodgers, a 5-0 loss, before the top of the third inning because of a sore left ankle.

"He's been battling through Achilles soreness, tightness, for about a week," interim manager Ryne Sandberg said. "It comes off and on. I don't think it was anything that was too serious, but he definitely felt it being out there on the field. Precautionary to some extent."

Young has been the product of trade speculation for the past several weeks, speculation that will continue through the Aug. 31 waiver Trade Deadline. Young has cleared waivers, so he can be traded, although he has complete no-trade rights.
