Kevin Youkilis out with sore left oblique
“It’s one of those things where, I think after I swung yesterday and running and all that, it was hot and I got a little dehydrated. When I got water in me, I was fine. Being a month away from games and all that, they just wanted to take it precautionary. I wanted to play today and was perfectly fine to play, and didn’t feel like there was any risk.”
Youkilis will be re-evaluated later in the week. In 2009, Youkilis was disabled for two weeks with a left oblique strain.
