Francona: Youkilis in lineup for now

During his weekly gig on WEEI, Terry Francona just said Kevin Youkilis said he expected Kevin Youkilis to be back in the lineup tonight.

Youkilis left the game in the fourth inning last night with an ankle cramp. Francona said the lineup could change once Youkilis reports to the ballpark.

The team also plans to keep Felix Doubront on the roster in the event Clay Buchholz is not able to make a start immediately after the All-Star break.
