After fouling a ball of off his shin, Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis left yesterday's game in the second inning.
Per the Boston Herald, the X-rays came back negative, which rules out a fracture. However, manager Terry Francona describes Youkilis as being "pretty sore."
Youkilis, who is off to a slow start this season, is hitting only .214 with three home runs and eight runs batted in through 18 games.
That said, he's had two multi-hit games in his past four games played and 14 at-bats.
The Red Sox, who won only two of their first 12 games, have won five of their past six games.
