The Rakuten Eagles have reportedly signed Kevin Youkilis (34) to a one-year deal worth four million US dollars plus one million in incentives, according to reports out of the United States.
From ESPN's Jerry Crasnick:
Kevin Youkilis has agreed to a one-year contract with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan for the 2014 season, his agent confirmed Friday.
Youkilis will have a $4 million base salary and can earn $1 million in bonuses -- including some based on walks, a provision not allowed in major league contracts.
... Bick said Youkilis, his wife, Julie, and their two children, ages 7 and 1, plan to spend the 2014 season together in Japan.
"Kevin's intent is to play one more year," said Bick, although he wouldn't rule out Youkilis playing beyond the 2014 season.
