The Tampa Bay Rays have an interest in free-agent 1B Kevin Youkilis (Yankees), who is not expected to be back in New York.
FANTASY TIP: Youkilis said earlier in the week that he wants to be closer to his California home, so St. Petersburg isn't much closer than New York. It is unclear how firm he is on his stance, but this might not go far.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
FANTASY TIP: Gore, who was hobbled toward the end of the team's Week 14 win, has usually been rested during mid-week practices anyway, so do not be too concerned yet. More will be known on his status Thursday and into Friday.
