Kevin Youkilis To Play 2014 Season In Japan
The beginning of the end for the Greek god of walks?
Kevin Youkilis has agreed to play in Japan for the Ratuken Golden Eagles in 2014.
This comes off the heels of what was a blur of a 2013 season with the Yankees, where he was oft injured and mostly a non-factor. Youkilis hasn’t played more than 120 games since 2009, despite being a good on base guy.
Youkilis was supposed to add some much needed depth in place of A-rod, after the Yankees inked him to a 1-year $12 million deal last off season. The experiment didn’t pan out, and Youk is off to take his talents to the other side of the world.
Could this be the end for Youkilis?
