BOSTON (CBS) – Last week, Bobby Valentine said Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis has not been “as physically or emotionally into the game as he has been in the past.”
Apparently, he was right.
They are also reportedly expecting a baby.
Youkilis is hitting just .174 this season with 1 HR and 5 RBI.
The 33-year-old is in the final year of a four-year deal that pays him $12 million this season. The team holds a club option for 2013 at $13 million.
