New York Yankees INF Kevin Youkilis

Age: 34 2013 stats: .219/.305/.343, 2 HRs, 8 RBIs Connolly's take: The Duquette-led Red Sox drafted him in the eighth round in 2001, and he eventually became one of baseball's best at getting on base — a real Orioles weakness. However, Youkilis was limited to just 28 games last year with the Yankees because of a back injury that required surgery. He is expected to be ready for spring training, but it would take a leap of faith to believe he can return to form. Duquette and the Orioles could take it, if the money is right. Youkilis could be the primary DH, with an ability to play both corner infield spots, if necessary.
