TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain says he's received a text message from new teammate Kevin Youkilis and hopes whatever tension existed between the two is past.
When the Yankees played the Red Sox, Chamberlain and Youkilis feuded over inside fastballs. After Youkilis agreed to join the Yankees in December, the pitcher left him a voice mail. Chamberlain said in January that he had not heard back, but said Tuesday he had received a text.
A three-time All-Star, Youkilis takes over at third base from Alex Rodriguez, expected to be sidelined until at least the All-Star break following hip surgery.
