Yankees Rumors: Kevin Youkilis ‘Seriously Considering’ Offer

Free agent corner infielder is “seriously considering” a one-year $12 million offer from the Yankees that he views as “very legitimate,” reports Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York.

According to Joe Bick, Kevin Youkilis' agent, the 33-year-old is "seriously considering" an offer from the Yankees that Bick and his client consider "very legitimate," reportedly an offer for one year at $12 million.

The Yankees interest in available third baseman increased significantly when they discovered veteran Alex Rodriguez would require hip surgery and could miss as much as half of the 2013 season. While Youkilis would slide in as the team’s regular at the hot corner to start the year, he could also be used to spell first baseman Mark Teixeira and as a right-handed-hitting option at designated hitter.

Beyond the Yankees, Youkilis and his agent are also said to be considering at least one other offer, which Wallace notes could be from the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Cleveland Indians have also been tied to Youkilis, but their interest may have declined after signing first baseman Mark Reynolds.
