Report: Red Sox Actively Shopping Youkilis

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.”

He could hit for average and for power, he was willing to play any position the manager asked him to play, he worked through seemingly perpetual injury problems and he never took one pitch for granted in his entire career. Sure, he rubbed some people the wrong way for complaining with umpires too often, but most onlookers understood that such outbursts were the result of a guy who cared.
