BOSTON RED SOX REMOVED YOUKILIS FROM DISABLED LIST
Fri, 25 May 2012 03:19 AM EDT

The Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Cody Ross on the 15-day disabled list with a broken bone in his left foot and put outfielder Ryan Sweeney on the 7-day DL for players suffering from concussion symptoms. Basketball lines

The team also turned on Kevin Youkilis (back strain) from the Disabled List and recently acquired outfielder Scott Podsednik to the list before Tuesday’s game with the Baltimore Orioles.

The Red Sox claimed a 2nd opinion confirmed the finding of a displaced fracture of the navicular bone in his Ross’ foot.

His place on the roster was taken by the 36-year-old Podsednik, a star of the 2005 World Series for the Chicago White Sox who’d been acquired 11 days ago from the Philadelphia Phillies in a minor league agreement.

Podsednik, who hit .323 (10-for-31) in 9 games with Triple-A Pawtucket with a .371 on-base percentage and .855 OPS, last played in the big leagues with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Kansas City Royals in 2010.

The Ross move was anticipated, though manager Bobby Valentine earlier Tuesday claimed Ross told the club he was “feeling truly good,” leading to some hope the crack in the bone shown by the MRI taken Monday had noted an old injury.

But Red Sox GM Ben Cherington declared that a 2nd opinion rendered by Doctor. Lew C. Schon, confirmed the diagnosis made by the Red Sox medical team of a displaced fracture happening when Ross fouled a ball off his foot Friday night in Philadelphia.

“There was a justification for hopefulness today simply because Cody felt better, and has felt better everyday. That’s a good sign,” Cherington expounded. “It makes us hopeful that his recovery will be smooth and on the short bit of the time-frame, got to let it heal.”

Sweeney was placed on the special 7-day DL Major league Baseball has made for players with concussions or concussive symptoms. He can’t be activated till he passes the tests administered by MLB. Youkilis missed 22 games with a lumbar region strain.

To create a spot on the 40-man roster spot for Podsednik, the Red Sox placed pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka on the 60-day DL, which makes him unsuitable to come off for 60 days from Opening Day.

With the additions of Ross and Sweeney, the Red Sox have 7 outfielders on the DL, and have disabled 16 players so far this season, with a mixed total of 450 games missed entering Tuesday night’s game.

Youkilis’s return led to another lineup shuffle. He’s going to play 1st base, a position he played frequently for 4½ seasons, the last time in 2010, when the Red Sox had Adrian Beltre at third. Youkilis became the fulltime 3rd baseman last season after Boston traded for Adrian Gonzalez.

Youkilis was batting 5th behind Gonzalez, who moved to right field. Rookie 3rd baseman Will Middlebrooks, who’d been batting 5th, dropped a position to 6th.

“I feel I’m capable of playing every day,” related Youkilis, adding that a shift back to 1st base wasn’t a problem. “I feel really good, ready to go out there and play a game. I feel great.
