Kevin Youkilis’ Back Injury May Force Will Middlebrooks’ Debut With Red Sox (Video)


Kevin Youkilis got off to a slow start to the 2012 season. But just when the All-Star third baseman was finally finding his groove, a nagging back injury cropped up.

Youkilis has now missed the past two games for the Red Sox, and if the injury lingers, it could very well be time to call up prized prospect Will Middlebrooks for a stint with the big club.

Nick Cafardo and Tom Caron discussed the possibility during Red Sox Monster Monday Presented by Bob's Stores.

Check out the video above to get the inside scoop on Youkilis' injury and the possibility of seeing Middlebrooks in the lineup this season.
