The Red Sox issued the following statement about the left ankle injury to first baseman Kevin Youkilis:

“Kevin Youkilis returned to Fort Myers, FL this afternoon to be examined by the Red Sox medical staff. He was diagnosed with a mild left ankle sprain as well as mild Achilles tendinitis in his left foot. Both MRI results were negative. To limit movement and allow his ankle to heal, Youkilis will wear a walking boot for the next several days but is not expected to miss significant time.

“Youkilis originally experienced some pain in his left ankle several days ago and it worsened in last night’€™s game vs. Team Puerto Rico.  He will no longer participate in the World Baseball Classic and will return to Red Sox camp tomorrow.”
