Kevin Youkilis, 3BFast fact: Youkilis has a .933 OPS over the last four years. Only four players in the majors are higher: Albert Pujols (1.032), Miguel Cabrera (.974), Joey Votto (.957) and Prince Fielder (.936).
Lowdown: Youkilis was an impediment defensively last season because of injuries. This year will determine whether he can move forward as a third baseman, which in turn will affect whether the team picks up its $13 million option on him. He remains a force at the plate.
Bobby Vs view: It looks to me like Kevin is moving around a lot better than he did last season."
