Report: Youkilis to the Yankees for $12M

Ken Rosenthal just tweeted:

Source: #Yankees sign Youkilis, one year, $12M.

Well, well, well, it looks like Kevin Youkilis finally made up his mind and has signed with the Yankees. I guess he really didn't have much of a choice in the matter and a one-year/$12M contract is nothing to sneeze at especially for a guy who has been on the decline the past three seasons and has been injury prone.

Youkilis hit .235/.336/.409 in 122 games split between the Red Sox and White Sox. He posted a .328 wOBA and a wRC+ of 102.

Wait, this is supposed to be a positive post because the Yankees finally signed someone this offseason who wasn't previously on the team. Hooray?

Update from Buster Olney: Youkilis verbally agreed, hasn't actually signed anything yet and he still has to take a physical.
