MLB.com's Bryan Hoch has reported that the Yankees have offered free agent third baseman Kevin Youkilis a one year deal worth $12MM. Whether there is any flexibility in the number of years and/or the cash remains to be seen.
My feeling is that the Yankees won't budge off the one year, but might raise the money a bit. The Cleveland Indians are said to be very interested in Youkilis as well and I could see them making a two year, $24MM or more deal.
