There has been a “good-sized market” for free agent corner infielder Kevin Youkilis so far this offseason, according to his agent, and the teams that have checked in on the slugger include the Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles Dodgers and Cleveland Indians, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Good-sized market so far for Youkilis, at both third and first base, according to his agent, Joe Bick. Beyond the Phillies, Dodgers and Indians, the Arizona Diamondbacks have also checked in on Youkilis, but general manager Kevin Towers indicated that they “will likely not be involved,” according to Cafardo. The Indians are interested in using Youkilis at first base, while the Phillies and Dodgers are considering him at third base. Cafardo notes that this would be a “back-burner option” for the Dodgers, as they have at least one in-house candidate to man the hot corner in Luis Cruz. While Youkilis has started most of his games at third base over the past two seasons, he manned first base regularly for the Boston Red Sox prior to 2011.

Rumor Mill: Zack Greinke & Hiroki Kuroda front-runners + Kevin Youkilis & Kyuji Fujikawa interest

The Dodgers are the favorite to win the Zack Greinke sweepstakes, according to Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald. According to an industry insider, the Dodgers are the favorites to wind up with top free agent starter Zack Greinke, with the Angels and Rangers on the outside looking in. And no starting pitcher on the market is going to be complaining by the end of the hot stove...
