Kevin Youkilis delivered a two-run homer and an RBI double in the Yankees' 11-9 victory over the Pirates on Sunday.

Youkilis never homered in 57 at-bats in spring 2011 nor in 41 at-bats last spring, but he has three in 26 at-bats so far in his first Yankees camp. His fantasy stock has also improved a bit, largely because he went from being penciled in as a No. 6 or No. 7 hitter to the likely cleanup man with Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson down.
