Kevin Youkilis homered to center field tonight while playing for Class AAA Pawucket in Rochester, N.Y.
Youkilis was 2 for 8 in two rehab games and is eligible to be activated on Friday. He has been out with a strained back.
Be sure to check out this terrific blog post from PawSox broadcaster Dan Hoard on how Youk took Will Middlebrooks under his wing while with the PawSox.
Good luck to Dan, too. As we've mentioned before, he's leaving his baseball gig to become the radio voice of the Cincinnati Bengals. Dan is a terrific broadcaster and provided a fountain of information on the PawSox over the air and on his blog.
