Back Lands Kevin Youkilis On DL

[1]The New York Yankees put Kevin Youkilis on disabled list because of a lumbar spine sprain on Tuesday, adding to the Yankees’ long list of injured former All-Stars.

Youkilis had missed eight of the past nine games because of what manager Joe Girardi had described as a stiff back. Youkilis played on Saturday, which cost the Yankees the opportunity to back-date his DL stint.

As a result, Youkilis won’t be able to return until the middle of May. He could’ve been eligible to come off the disabled list more than a week earlier.
