The Yankees signed Kevin Youkilis to a one-year, $12 million free agent contract early last month and will feature him as their starting third baseman through at least the first half of the 2013 season.
A-Rod’s owed $28 million in 2013, $25 million in 2014, $21 million in 2015, and $20 million in 2016 and 2017.
