Kevin Youkilis rumors: Indians, Phillies, Dodgers

Rob Grabowski-US PRESSWIRE

There is a “good-sized market” for free agent corner infielder Kevin Youkilis.

There is a "good-sized market" for free agent corner infielder Kevin Youkilis, his agent tells Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, and the Philadelphia Phillies, Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers have all expressed some level of interest in the veteran slugger:

Good-sized market so far for Youkilis, at both third and first base, according to his agent, Joe Bick.

Beyond the Phillies, Indians and Dodgers, the Arizona Diamondbacks have also checked in on Youkilis. However, general manager Kevin Towers indicated that they "will likely not be involved."

Cafardo lists Youkilis as a "back-burner option" for the Dodgers, who would use the 33-year-old at third base if they signed him. However, Los Angeles already has one in-house candidate to man the hot corner next season in Luis Cruz.

The Indians view Youkilis as a potential option at first base, while the Phillies are considering him at third, according to Cafardo. While the veteran has mostly manned third over the past few seasons, he spent the first part of his career as a regular first baseman.
