The Dodgers have acquired third baseman Michael Young from the Philadelphia Phillies, FOX's Ken Rosenthal reports.

Young waived his no-trade clause to allow the deal to go through.

He was a trade target earlier in the season, connected to teams including the Yankees and Red Sox, but the Phillies held on to him as the deadline passed. Because he was acquired on Aug. 31, he will be eligible for the postseason roster.

Young is owed approximately $2.9 million for the remainder of the season and will become a free agent this winter.

The 36-year-old has a .272/.333/.389 line in 507 plate appearances this year.
