Rangers Checked In On Youkilis
The Rangers checked on Kevin Youkilis, but they are "not involved anymore," according to Major League sources.
Youkilis is being actively shopped by the Red Sox. Texas might be a fit because they are without first baseman Mitch Moreland for four to six weeks because of a strained left hamstring.
The Rangers are interested in upgrading their bench, but they weren't sure that Youkilis would have been happy in Texas filling what would most likely have been a supporting role.
