Youkilis OK After Scare
Last night, Kevin Youkilis left the game in the 1st inning after fouling a ball off of his shin. The X-Rays were negative last night, but he was re-evaluated today, and they proved correct, he is fine. Youkilis missed so much time last year after getting surgery on his thumb, and I hope that he is alright for sure. Youkilis will probably miss the next few games against the Angels, and Jed Lowrie (.432/3/12), who is on a tear will probably move to third while Marco Scutaro (.195/0/6) plays shortstop. This season, Youkilis has gotten off to a slow start for the most part, as he is now .214/3/8 as he has hit home runs in the past few games. I hope Youkilis is alright, and so far results look good for the Sox.
