Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Yankees | Kevin Youkilis available if needed

New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) was available if necessary Sunday, June 9, against the Seattle Mariners, but manager Joe Girardi held him out. "I think I could have used him, but my goal was to stay from him today," Girardi said.

Fantasy Tip: Youkilis and the Yankees have the benefit of a scheduled day off Monday, so Youkilis and the rest of his dinged up teammates can rest nagging injuries. Youkilis is a risky play in the upcoming week due to his back, but fantasy owners knew that heading into the season. Proceed with caution.
