Kevin Youkilis at Third Base Gives Will Middlebrooks a Chance to Rest Legs From Running So Much (Video)

Plenty of questions surround Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine's decision to put Kevin Youkilis back in the lineup at third base.

But answers that include speculation about trade rumors aren't the only ones out there. The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham says Will Middlebrooks has been getting some teasing from teammates for batting in the designated hitter spot on Sunday — although he may need it, as his hot hitting has had him rounding the bases quite a bit.

See what Abraham told Tom Caron and Nick Cafardo about the Youkilis situation on Red Sox GameDay Live Presented by UNO.
