Kevin Youkilis returns to Fenway for the first time since being traded to the White Sox on June 24. The trade seemed to spark Youkilis, who has three home runs and 15 runs batted in with the White Sox in 16 contests since the trade. He only mustered four homers and 14 runs batted in to start the season in Boston.
Carl Crawford's return is the bigger story for the Red Sox, though. Crawford will make his season debut Monday after rehabbing an elbow injury to start the season. The Red Sox signed Crawford to a monster free agent contract before the 2011 season, and Crawford has not lived up to expectations. He will have a chance to right the ship, however, starting with Monday's game against the White Sox.
All eyes will be on Youkilis and Crawford during this series, but which player will have the biggest impact? Youkilis has been on fire, but Crawford is coming off a successful rehab stint in the minor leagues.
Which returning player will have more hits in the Red Sox' series against the White Sox? Vote below.
