New York Yankees INF Ronnier Mustelier has a chance to make the team and play third base if the team decides to move 3B Kevin Youkilis to first base in the absence of 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist). "His bat is making him have a chance," general manager Brian Cashman said. "We'll see what we see the rest of camp with his glove, but he can hit."

The New York Yankees met with Joe Bick, the agent for free-agent 3B Kevin Youkilis (White Sox), twice during the winter meetings this week. Youkilis is believed to be willing to sign for one year if the salary was high enough. The Cleveland Indians are New York's prime competition for the services of Youkilis. New York doesn't think their in-house options of SS Eduardo Nunez or INF Jayson Nix are sufficient stop-gaps at third base in 3B Alex Rodriguez's (hip) absence. Minor league 3Bs David Adams and Ronnier Mustelier are not realistic options.
