Youkilis had filed for $3.7 million and the Red Sox for
$2,525,000 when the sides exchanged proposed salaries in
arbitration last month. He made $424,500 last season, when he hit
.288 with 16 homers and 83 RBIs.
First baseman Kevin Youkilis and the Red Sox agreed Sunday to a $3 million, one-year contract, avoiding a salary arbitration hearing.
