Yankees' news, rumors: Yankees talk to Kevin Youkilis' agent

US PRESSWIRE

New York has contacted the agent of free-agent third baseman Kevin Youkilis.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have seen a fair share of players crossing enemy lines in the history of their longtime rivalry. But the latest round of roster-swapping could be one each fan base may not be happy with.

According to the YES Network's Jack Curry, the Yankees have talked with the agent of free-agent corner infielder Kevin Youkilis, who's considering signing a one-year deal if the money is right.

The former longtime Red Sox third baseman finished last season with the Chicago White Sox after he was traded by Boston in June. In 122 games, Youkilis hit .235 with 19 home runs and 60 RBI.

The Yankees, who learned Monday starting third baseman Alex Rodriguez will miss half of next season because of hip surgery, need to fill a corner infield spot.

Based on his resume Youkilis is the best option, however, he may not come at the best value. Last season, the 33-year-old made $12.25 million and its expected he will be looking for at least the same amount of money.
