New York Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis placed on 15-day disabled list
Signed to a one-year deal in the offseason to replace the injured Alex Rodriguez at third base, Youkilis is batting .266 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 17 games and has a history of back trouble. David Adams was a name that was considered a replacement, but the Yankees instead called up infielder Corban Joseph from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Joesph got the call because unlike Adams, he's on the Yankees' 40-man roster and Adams can't be summoned until May 15.
