Kevin Youkilis Trade Rumors: Braves, White Sox Among Possible Suitors Mentioned

The Boston Red Sox are likely to part ways in the next few days with their longtime bearded third baseman Kevin Youkilis. While it’s hard to imagine the BoSox without Youk, it’s also clear that third base prospect Will Middlebrooks is more than ready with an incredible 31 RBI in 38 games. Thus, Youk is headed elsewhere and the Atlanta Braves are mentioned as a possible destination.

According to CBS Sports’ Scott Miller, "Though one source with knowledge of the talks said a handful of clubs are talking with Boston. The White Sox talks appear to have gained momentum, with some on Saturday thinking Chicago is the leading candidate to acquire him. The Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers are among those pushing hard, too, sources said."

With so many teams in the mix, the BoSox could get a decent return for Youkilis, although the 33-year-old has been struggling this season and has never played a full season in the Major Leagues to date.

So far this season, Youkilis is hitting .225 with 4 home runs and 13 RBI.
