Kevin Youkilis has agreed to a one year contract with the Rakuten Golden Eagles

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

Kevin Youkilis is heading to Japan, having agreed to a one year deal with the Rakuten Golden Eagles.

The 34 year old corner infielder put up a 648 OPS in 28 games with the Yankees in 2013, missing the final two-thirds of the year because of back surgery.

Youkilis had been mentioned as a possible bench option for the Rangers, but it does not appear that the Rangers had any significant interest in him.
