Kevin Youkilis took batting practice wearing sneakers, sans plastic boot on his left foot, while J.D. Drew did not participate with the Red Sox during their morning workout. Youkilis is hopeful he'll play in a game Monday, while Drew was unsure of how long it would take him to return from the contusion on his right hand ...
Drew did not think the pain and weakness in his hand would keep him out too long. He seemed to think it would be a matter of days, and that missing Opening Day is in no way a possibility because of this injury. ...
Youkilis was examined this morning by Dr. Peter Asnis, and the diagnosis was positive enough that he could remove the boot he's worn for three days. Youkilis said he had "good strength in the tendons. It'll be fine."
