White Sox’ De Aza, Youkilis sit out with injuries

SHARE White Sox’ De Aza, Youkilis sit out with injuries

The White Sox are a little banged up. Alejandro De Aza and Kevin Youkilis both did not start against the Kansas City Royals on Sunday, De Aza for the second consecutive day with soreness in his left oblique/rib cage area and Youkilis with a sore right knee.

“No improvement,” De Aza said Sunday. “Right now I’m still feeling it so I don’t know [when I’ll play again].”

Youkilis’ knee has sidelined him before.

“I’m just trying to battle through something that’s been barking a little bit,” Youkilis said.

With 13 pitchers, it leaves Ventura’s bench ultra-thin, although he said De Aza and Youkilis could have played in an emergency.

“There other guys with little tweaks you’d like to give a day off here and and you’re just not able to,” Ventura said. “Just have to gut it out.”
