Breaking News: Youkilis to DL

Slumping slugger Kevin Youkilis is heading to the disabled list.  The Red Sox have called up Ryan Lavarnway to take his place.  Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe first reported the story.

Youk has struggled lately, hitting .222 over the last week.  He is heading to the DL because of soreness in his back.

Lavarnway is a top hitting prospect in the Sox organization.  He has 30 HR and 85 RBI in 110 games between AA Portland and AAA Pawtucket.  The catcher was a sixth round pick in the 2008 amateur draft.
