Youkilis back in the Boston lineup, Velazquez back to Pawtucket

After a brief stay on the 15-day disabled list with a stained left oblique and 2 rehab appearances for Pawtucket, first baseman Kevin Youkilis is back in the Boston lineup for tonight's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Youkilis had been placed on the DL on May 12, retroactive to May 5, and went 0 for 6 with a walk during his Triple-A rehab stint. To make room for Youkilis on the 25-man roster, Gil Velazquez will return to Pawtucket once again. During his brief tour with Boston, his second on the season, Velazquez did not receive a plate appearance and appeared in only 1 game defensively, relieving Julio Lugo at shortstop on May 16 in Seattle. He will likely be available for Pawtucket's game tomorrow night against the division-leading Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
