According to a report  from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Dodgers, Phillies and Diamondbacks are among the teams showing an interest in trading for Kevin Youkilis.
Heyman reports that the talks are all at the preliminary stage at this point, though he also reports that the Sox envision an eventual need to trade Youkilis, who is batting .253 with four HR and 12 RBI in 28 games this season.
In an email  to WEEI.com last Friday, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington denied a CBSSports.com report that the team intended to trade Youkilis.
"That’s inaccurate," Cherington e-mailed WEEI.com on Friday. "Some teams have checked in on him. We haven’t told any teams we plan to trade him. It’s our job to listen if teams have interest. He’s swinging the bat well since coming off the DL and [is] a big part of our team and lineup."
