The Phillies, Dodgers and Diamondbacks have expressed interest in trading for Kevin Youkilis, according to Jon Heyman of Bleacher Report.

According to Heyman:

"Although one Red Sox person called talks 'very preliminary' to this point, others familiar with their thinking say the Red Sox envision an eventual need to trade him, barring more injuries."Red Sox people are telling others they'd require something of value back for Youkilis, but word is their demands would lessen if an acquiring team is willing to pay the 9-million-plus remaining on his contract that pays 12 million this year and carries a 1 million buyout on his 13-million 2013 option."
