Kevin Youkilis’ Future Difficult to Consider With Third Baseman’s Value Uncertain After Injury

Kevin Youkilis looked pretty good in his first rehab start for the Pawtucket Red Sox, and the third baseman's quick return to the lineup would be a positive sign for a Red Sox team that's struggled for them sometimes.

However, with Will Middlebrooks playing well in his absence, fans in Red Sox Nation are curious about the future of the club's hot corner and how the team will balance the playing time between the two players.

NESN.com's Red Sox reporter Didier Morais took to Twitter on Wednesday to answer the questions of Red Sox Nation using the hashtag #NESNLive. He also touched on Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford's progress in recovering from injuries, Mark Melancon's future with the major league team and much more.

Check out a transcript of the entire chat below.
