Regarding free agent Kevin Youkilis and the Yankees, here's this tweet from Jack Curry of YES Network:

The Yankees' interest is understandable, since they could some additional depth at the infield corners. After all, Alex Rodriguez may be facing a lengthy suspension, and Mark Teixeira is coming off wrist surgery.

Youkilis, though, appears to be inclined to sign with a team near the West Coast. Although, as always in these matters, money sometimes has the final word.

Youkilis, 34, is coming off an injury-riddled 2013 season in which he batted .219/.305/.343 in just 28 games for the Yanks. For his career, he owns a nifty OPS+ of 123, but he hasn't produced at a high level since 2011.
