Youk Agrees to One-Year Deal

The Red Sox and Kevin Youkilis avoided arbitration on Sunday and they agreed on a one year deal for $3 million. Youk was seeking $3.7 million and the Sox offered $2.5 million, so they basically met in the middle. It is a substantial raise for the Sox first baseman.

Once again Theo Epstein avoids arbitration with a Red Sox player, and in his whole tenure in Boston he has never gone to arbitration with any player.
