Youkilis Drawing Interest, Prefers West Coast

Kevin Youkilis is beginning to draw some interest as a low-cost corner infield option, tweets Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. The YES Network's Jack Curry adds that Yankees GM Brian Cashman recently reached out to Youk's agent and was informed that his client's preference was to play closer to his home in California (Twitter link).

Youk's lone season in Yankee pinstripes consisted of just 28 games and 118 plate appearances due to persistent back injuries. The 34-year-old batted just .219/.305/.343 in his brief stint with the Yankees, which, combined with injury concerns, will likely make it difficult to find regular at-bats with a club, especially if he's boxing himself into one geographic region.

    Cleveland! Is Youkilis playing for charity now. He might as well join the Durham Bulls.

    I’d keep him off the field if you want him to stay off the DL.

    Agreed…but I wouldn’t even have him carry a glove. Keep the bat in his hand and sitting on the bench when the team is in the field.

    Dodgers will probably sign to a 2 year deal
