According to Peter Abraham, Kevin Youkilis said that his back began to loosen up today but that doctors still believe he is 3-4 days away from resuming baseball activities. As a result, the Red Sox have put him on the disabled list. That means that Red Sox super prospect Will Middlebrooks will be called up from AAA. This season for AAA Pawtucket Middlebrooks is batting .333 with 9 homers and 27 rbi’s. Things could get very interesting in Boston if Middlebrooks’s success carries over to the majors as Kevin Youkilis is off to a slow start and is in a contract year making him expendable.
