Boston Red Sox

BOSTON (CBS) – It’s been said all season, but the final days of Kevin Youkilis in a Red Sox uniform may be approaching.

According to a report by Fox Sports, the Sox are aggressively shopping Youkilis throughout baseball. While the report says no deal is imminent, one National League official said the third baseman is “being shopped everywhere.”

“The Red Sox have made clear that (a) Youkilis is available and (b) they are willing to include cash to facilitate a better player return,” the report states. “In response, a number of clubs have indicated that they have interest in acquiring the three-time All-Star.”

The Diamondbacks, White Sox, Dodgers, Indians and Pirates are among those interested in the 33-year-old Youkilis, who has more than $7 million left on his contract this season and a $1 million buyout on a $13 million club option for next season.
