Reynolds could form a pretty powerful platoon with Kelly Johnson, though their defense would be lacking. (When you think about it, how much different at third base is that than A-Rod?)
As for the 37-year-old Young, the Yankees tried to trade for him prior to last July's deadline when he ended up with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In 147 games in 2013, Young hit .279 with a .730 OPS. By comparison, Rodriguez had a .771 OPS in 44 games in '13.
The Yankees aren't planning on moving forward with anything at third until they know A-Rod's penalty -- or lack thereof -- and possibly won't make any moves at third until after the Masahiro Tanaka Sweepstakes conclude.
But they will consider Young, along with Reynolds, if A-Rod's ban is upheld.
