Kevin Youkilis Returns to Boston on Fire at the Plate (Video)

Kevin Youkilis makes his return to Boston on Monday, just a few weeks after the Red Sox traded the infielder to the Chicago White Sox.

While rumors of friction in the clubhouse ran rampant early in the year, Tim Wakefield insists that Youkilis took a professional approach to the game during the time the two played together. Wakefield praised Youkilis' work ethic and dedication to baseball.

Wakefield and Tom Caron discussed the recent success Youkilis has had at the plate and what his return to Boston will hold. Check out the video above for the entire segment from Sunday's NESN Daily.
