Is Youkilis back in Boston?

September, 9, 2011
Red Sox play-by-play man and WEEI host Dale Arnold, who was in Toronto to call the final two games of Boston's series against the Blue Jays, tweeted earlier today that Kevin Youkilis -- who came off the disabled list Sept. 2 after a lower-back injury -- was on the same flight as him heading back to Boston.

The Red Sox, who kick off a three-game series in Tampa tonight, have not confirmed this, but if true it could be a troubling sign for a team that's had more of its share of bad news recently. ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes is in Tampa Bay with the Red Sox and is efforting more information.

What we know so far is that Youkilis is indeed out of tonight's Red Sox lineup, which has Jed Lowrie playing third base.
