Kevin Youkilis has not played since being hit in the right wrist by a pitch from New York's Chien-Ming Wang. Youkilis played catch for about 15 minutes Tuesday with trainer Paul Lessard but has yet to swing a bat since getting hurt, so it's highly unlikely he'll play Wednesday. 'The off day [Thursday] will definitely help,' said Youkilis, who said the swelling in his wrist has gone down but has settled in the area of his thumb.
