Kevin Youkilis is bucking the trend of Red Sox players going down with injuries.

The third baseman came off the disabled list on Tuesday and will play first base for the Red Sox against the Orioles on Tuesday night.

Youkilis was quick to bat down any questions of controversy with his return, despite Will Middlebrooks continuing to play at Youkilis' regular spot — third base.

Journeyman Scott Podsednik is also giving the Red Sox a hand on Tuesday after being called up from Triple-A Pawtucket. He came to the Red Sox in a trade with the Phillies.

See what Youkilis and Posednik had to say about joining the team on Red Sox First Pitch.
