The Chicago White Sox own a $13 million option on Kevin Youkilis, and even though they'll probably decline it, they're interested in bringing him back. The problem is that they could be facing competition from a division rival. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com writes that some see the Cleveland Indians as a potential fit for the veteran third baseman, and although it is pure speculation at this point, it makes a lot of sense for them. The Indians definitely need bats, as Heyman points out, and the Indians' new manager, Terry Francona, already managed Youkilis in Boston and they had a “very close relateionship” according to Heyman. Youkilis, 33, hit .235/.336/.409 with 19 HR's, 60 RBI's and a 99 OPS+ in 509 plate appearances with the Red Sox and White Sox. Image by Keith Allison under the Creative Commons License Agreement.
