MLB: Youkilis changes stripes, joins Yankees
NEW YORK — Kevin Youkilis is about to get a different look at the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry.
The hard-nosed Youkilis, who helped personify Boston’s championship teams over the past decade, on Tuesday became the latest former Red Sox star to switch sides and land in Bronx. The free agent reached a deal that filled New York’s immediate need for a third baseman to fill in for injured Alex Rodriguez.
The 1-year contract for $12 million is pending a physical. Youkilis, who turns 34 in March, is expected to play third base while Rodriguez recovers from hip surgery.
