Kevin Youkilis has been a key part of the Boston Red Sox's lineup for years, but he may find himself switching teams after the 2012 season. In an interview with WEEI, Youkilis said that he is not thinking about the Red Sox picking up his option for 2013. Rather he is worried about going out there and performing everyday.
A number of teams will be willing to fight over Youkilis if he does become a free agent. He has the ability to play both first base and third base and that versatility increases the number of teams that will be chasing after him if he hits the open market.
