(CBS) Former Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee won’t be making a come back.

According to a report, the former N.L. batting champion turned down the Yankees offer to come out of retirement.

The Yankees had reportedly pursued Lee after Mark Teixeira went down with a wrist injury.

The Yankees signed former Red Sox and White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis to cover for an injured Alex Rodriguez, so it’s plausible Youkilis could slide over to first.
