According to Jack Curry of the YES Network, the Yankees are targeting free agent third baseman Kevin Youkilis.
The Yankees are in search of a replacement third baseman with A-Rod’s recent hip surgery. Rodriguez is expected to be sidelined 4-6 months after the surgery.
The longtime Red Sox player hit .235 with 19 home runs and 60 RBIs last year. It would be an awkward site to see Youkilis in a Yankee uniform, but I guess anything is possible.
Here is the tweet Curry sent out early Tuesday afternoon:
With ARod out, Yanks have spoken with Kevin Youkilis’s agent. Word is that Youk would consider 1-year deal if money was at premium amount.
