Description: Corner infielder Kevin Youkilis has apparently signed to play in Japan for 2014, according to a CBSSports.com report.
Insight: Youk's days of being a fantasy asset were well in the past, as he batted just .219 with a .648 OPS last season, but its a bit surprising that no MLB club was willing to take a shot with him.

Description: According to the New York Daily News, Yankees corner infielder Kevin Youkilis is still holding out hope that he can return before the end of the season.
Insight: Youkilis has been out since June after undergoing back surgery. The original timetable given for a return was 10-to-12 weeks but Youkilis admitted "it's different for everybody." We haven't heard anything about Youk beginning a rehab assignment and at this point he's a longshot to return before the close of the 2013 campaign.

Description: Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis' 10-12 week timetable is actually a best-case scenario, and he actually could miss more time than that, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
Insight: Youkilis (.219, 2 HR) has played just 28 games due to his back injury this season and will have surgery to repair a herniated disk. The infielder was given a 10-12 week timetable earlier this week, but he might actually have to miss more time if his back surgeon discovers more damage beyond the herniated disk.

Cold6/14/2013 7:11:00 PM
Description: New York third baseman Kevin Youkilis has landed back on the DL.
Insight: The Yankees are calling it a "lumbar spine sprain." It's pretty obvious Youk came back from the DL too soon. In 11 games since being activated on May 31st, Youkilis has gone 6-for-41 (.146) with 11 strikeouts. His batting average has tumbled from .266 to .219 over that span.
 
5/31/2013 7:16:00 PM

4/29/2013 11:00:00 PM
Description: New York Yankees corner infielder Kevin Youkilis' MRI was negative. He'll have an epidural on Tuesday and the team will decide whether he'll be placed on the DL or not in the coming hours, according to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger.
Insight: Youkilis has been dealing with a back injury since April 20. He returned for one game on April 27 after missing six, so if the team places him on the DL it will have to be retroactive to that date.
 
4/29/2013 4:36:00 PM
Description: New York Yankees corner infielder Kevin Youkilis (back) is not in Monday's lineup, and we're still awaiting results of the MRI he had earlier today.
Insight: Youkilis started out batting .424 through nine games, but he is 3-for-31 over his last eight. Returning for a game on April 27 after six straight absences will prevent the Yankees from placing him on the DL retroactive to April 20, the day he first suffered the injury.
 
4/28/2013 4:48:00 PM
Description: New York Yankees corner infielder Kevin Youkilis (back) will undergo an MRI Monday, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNY.com.

4/28/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: New York Yankees corner infielder Kevin Youkilis is not in Sunday's starting lineup. A tight lower back caused Youkilis to miss six straight games, before he played on Saturday.
Insight: Youkilis returned to the lineup on Saturday against the Blue Jays after missing six games and went hitless. He's batting a barely respectable .266 with a pair of homers and seven RBI, but the injury-filled Yankees roster needs him in the lineup.
 
4/27/2013 1:02:00 PM
Description: New York Yankees corner infielder Kevin Youkilis will return to the lineup on Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: A tight lower back caused Youkilis to miss six straight games. He's batting a respectable .279 with a pair of homers and seven RBI. As quickly as the Yankees are losing starters (Cervelli last night), they need Youkilis back in the lineup.
 
4/26/2013 5:39:00 PM
Description: New York corner infielder Kevin Youkilis won't see the field Friday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: A tight lower back will cause Youkilis to miss his fifth straight game. A trip to the DL could be in the cards for the often-injured third baseman.
 
4/26/2013 1:30:00 PM
Description: Yankees 1B/3B Kevin Youkilis sat Thursday night and is questionable for Friday's game against Toronto.
Insight: He still has tightness in his lower back. Lyle Overbay and Jayson Nix would likely cover the two corner positions if Youkilis (.279, 2 HR, 7 RBI) can't play.
