So, according to MLB.com’s Scott Merkin, the veteran Youkilis is getting the day off Sunday. Ray Olmedo will start at the hot corner instead as the Pale Hose wrap up a weekend series with the A’s.
Youkilis should be back in action in Monday night’s series-opener against the Blue Jays. He is officially listed as “day-to-day.”
The 33-year-old is batting .252/.371/.504 with 10 homers and 29 RBI in 38 games since being traded to Chicago. He hit .233/.315/.377 with four homers and 14 RBI in 42 games earlier this season for Boston.
