FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: YANKS INK 3B KEVIN YOUKILIS FOR ONE YEAR AND $12 MILLION

The New York Yankees signed free agent 3B Kevin Youkilis to a one-year deal for $12 million to play in place of injured Alex Rodriguez for some or maybe all of 2013.  Youkilis was also courted by the Cleveland Indians and old manager Terry Francona but the lure of winning swayed Youkilis to head east.

Analysis:  The move actually helps Youkilis and his fading fantasy baseball value but he is a borderline starting option in 12-team leagues due to his injury worries and fading bat.  Also if Rodriguez does come back at some point, playing time could be an issue.
