Kevin Youkilis

  1. Yankees weighing Jeff Keppinger, Kevin Youkilis for third base

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:51 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    While the Yankees have at least touched base with free agent Kevin Youkilis, Jeff Keppinger appears to be their primary target at the moment. Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan reports that the two sides met yesterday and that the Bombers’ interest in Keppinger is “very strong.” Keppinger is the more realistic target, given that Youkilis is…

  2. Pirates get Zach Stewart from Red Sox, Vin Mazzaro and Clint Robinson from Royals

    Nov 28, 2012, 11:49 AM EDT

    Vin Mazzaro

    Pittsburgh made a pair of minor trades, acquiring right-hander Zach Stewart from the Red Sox for a player to be named later and getting right-hander Vin Mazzaro and first baseman Clint Robinson from the Royals for minor leaguer pitchers Luis Santos and Luis Rico. Boston got Stewart from Chicago in the Kevin Youkilis trade, but…

  3. Several teams are interested in Kevin Youkilis

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Indians, Phillies, Dodgers, Mariners and Marlins have all expressed interest on Kevin Youkilis. Flexibility and a shallow third and first base free agent market are helping Youkilis, it would seem. Because on the merits he is not a great free agent candidate.  Morosi notes his improvement after leaving for…

  4. Dodgers considering adding Kevin Youkilis for third base

    Nov 9, 2012, 6:46 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    The Dodgers indicated at season’s end that they’d likely go into 2013 with Hanley Ramirez at shortstop and Luis Cruz at third. They’d also have the option of going back to former top prospect Dee Gordon at short and shifting Ramirez to third. As it turns out, though, baseball’s new richest team may go in…

  5. Dustin Pedroia is philosophical about the Bobby Valentine era

    Nov 6, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Getty

    The first really public strife involving Bobby Valentine and the Sox last year came when Dustin Pedroia called him out in the media for making disparaging comments about Kevin Youkilis (“that’s not how we go about our stuff here”). In light of that — and in light of other rumored issues between Pedroia and Valentine…

  6. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

  7. White Sox interested in re-signing Kevin Youkilis after declining his option

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Chicago declined its $13 million option on Kevin Youkilis earlier this week, buying him out for $1 million instead, but the White Sox are interested in bringing him back at a reduced salary. New general manager Rick Hahn said during a radio interview with ESPN-1000 that he laid out the situation to Youkilis when informing…

  8. “Pursuing A-Rod makes sense for the Phillies”

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    It’s the offseason and free agents can’t even sign yet, so what better time to start some good old fashioned shootin’-the-poop over almost certainly not going to happen roster moves? Today: Corey Seidman and the CSNPhilly.com gang talking about A-Rod to the Phillies! Pursuing A-Rod makes sense for the Phillies, who have a glaring hole…

  9. White Sox sign Jake Peavy to $29 million contract, decline Kevin Youkilis’ option

    Oct 30, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    The White Sox’s 2013 rotation is set to look a whole lot like the 2012 group after all. The team today re-signed Jake Peavy to a tw0-year, $29 million deal and picked up Gavin Floyd‘s $9.5 million option for 2013. The team also announced that it had declined Kevin Youkilis‘ $13 million option and Brett…

  10. Marco Scutaro named NLCS MVP

    Marco Scutaro Reuters

    Who else were you expecting? The Giants defeated the Cardinals 9-0 in Game 7 of the NLCS tonight and the MVP of the series was a pretty easy call. Marco Scutaro, who managed to stay in the lineup after Matt Holliday‘s takeout slide in Game 2, was named the MVP after hitting a scorching .500…

  11. This just isn’t the time for Yankees to trade Alex Rodriguez

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    As far as I can tell, Alex Rodriguez committed two crimes this month. He played pretty horribly in the playoffs, which hardly put him among the minority of Yankees hitters, and he embarrassed his team by reportedly trying to get a woman’s digits from the dugout. In the case of the latter, absolutely no one…

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    At least part of it?  Here’s some speculation from Heyman that actually makes sense: The White Sox would like to re-sign third baseman Kevin Youkilis. But some see the rival Indians, who’ve hired his friend Terry Francona to manage, as a potential threat to try to sign Youkilis now. The Indians’ interest is mostly in the speculative…

  13. The Red Sox win the championship!

    Pawtucket Red Sox

    OK, it was just the Governors’ Cup, the trophy given to the winner of the Triple-A level International League championship. But it is one thing for the Red Sox to celebrate in a dismal 2012 season. They hadn’t won the title in 28 years. The Pawtucket Red Sox finished a sweep of the best-of-five series…

  14. White Sox and Indians reschedule their September 25 game for Yom Kippur

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    white sox logo

    The Chicago White Sox announced yesterday that their September 25th home game against the Indians has been moved up from 7:10 p.m. to 1:10 for Yom Kippur. Though it wasn’t the team’s original intention to move game time up from 7:10 p.m., the White Sox will gain the services of third baseman Kevin Youkilis, who…

  15. Bobby Valentine brings boxing gloves to radio show, plans to manage Red Sox in 2013 “and beyond”

    Sep 12, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Last week Bobby Valentine made headlines for saying he wanted to punch WEEI radio host Glenn Ordway following what the Red Sox manager thought was an obnoxious question. Valentine was back on WEEI and Ordway’s show this afternoon and jokingly brought boxing gloves to the studio. In addition to proving (or at least attempting to…

  16. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  17. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…

  18. Updated: Where would the Red Sox go minus Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett?

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:55 PM EDT

    Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez

    The deal isn’t yet official, but it looks like Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto are all Los Angeles bound in exchange for four minimum-salaried players and  free-agent-to-be James Loney. That would cut $58.25 million in 2013 salaries from Boston’s payroll and leave the Red Sox committed to only four players for…

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  20. Man dies at Rogers Centre during Blue Jays game

    Chicago White Sox v Toronto Blue Jays

    Thursday’s game between the White Sox and Blue Jays was delayed after a fan went into cardiac arrest down the left-field line at Rogers Centre. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital. According to “the man in white,” who was tweeting from the game, a fan performed CPR on the ailing man first and then…

  21. Jason Varitek for Red Sox manager

    Aug 14, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Jason Varitek

    I tried this nine months ago with little support. Let’s see if it flies better now. Terry Francona lost the Red Sox clubhouse. Bobby Valentine never had it in the first place. What the Red Sox seem to want is one of their own running the team, and who is more one of their own…

  22. Kevin Youkilis out Sunday with sore knee and forearm

    Aug 12, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

    kevin youkilis getty

    White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis has been dealing with soreness in his right knee for close to a week and was plunked in the left forearm by A’s reliever Grant Balfour on Saturday night. So, according to MLB.com’s Scott Merkin, the veteran Youkilis is getting the day off Sunday. Ray Olmedo will start at…

  23. Report: Will Middlebrooks suffers broken wrist on hit-by-pitch

    Will Middlebrooks Getty

    Clay Buchholz tossed a two-hitter tonight as part of a 3-2 win over the Indians, but the Red Sox were dealt another tough blow on the injury front in the process. Will Middlebrooks left the game in the top of the ninth inning after being hit in the right wrist by a pitch. The Red…

  24. Should Bobby Valentine be fired? Red Sox owner responds

    Aug 6, 2012, 6:44 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Red Sox owner John Henry answered the calls for Bobby Valentine’s dismissal with an email sent to WEEI’s Rob Bradford and others Monday: I’ve gotten questions about Bobby and about ownership from you so I’ll say the following on the record. To blame Bobby Valentine for the Red Sox being .500 at this point in…

  25. White Sox don’t plan on exercising Youk’s $13 million option

    Aug 5, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Kevin Youkilis has posted an .864 OPS with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 33 games since joining the White Sox. They love him, but that love has limits. A White Sox official told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe this weekend that the club is unlikely to exercise Youk’s $13 million club option for the…
