Young returns to Rangers from paternity leave
ARLINGTON -- Michael Young was back in the lineup Monday after missing three games due to paternity leave. Young last played Thursday night, leaving the game to be with his wife, Cristina, as she gave birth to a son, Antonio.

"I left the game in the fourth inning and the baby came in the sixth inning," Young said. "The game was on in the delivery room so I was able to keep up with it. Everybody is good, everybody is fine. The cavalry [his family] came in from California to help out so everything is good."

Young was also able to get three days of rest as the Rangers head down the stretch, although he said he didn't need it. He was 9-for-30 with two doubles, one home run, five RBIs and eight runs scored in his last eight games.

"I don't like to draw a correlation between my family life and my baseball job but I feel fine physically," Young said. "Once you get to this point in the season, any rest can only help, but I feel good."
