Report: Youkilis signs with Yankees

Tweet [1]

Ken Rosenthal has the story: [2] Kevin Youkilis has signed for one year, $12 million.

UPDATE, 6:37 p.m.: As you probably expected, the Rosenthal report is true. The Yankees have agreed to terms, but Youkilis still has to take a physical and actually sign a contract. The Yankees believe Youkilis will hit for a better average than he did last season — he reached a career-low .235 last year — but mostly they seem to like that he can still grind at-bats and hit for power from the right side, something the Yankees lineup is lacking.
