Two quick updates from the clubhouse:
* The initial exam on the right thumb of Kevin Youkilis was negative. But he will have an MRI tomorrow morning. He had swelling when he got jammed in the first inning.
* Jacoby Ellsbury said he has no idea when he will be able to play in the majors. “I’ll be feeling something for the rest of the year,” he said.
He balked at further questions, saying he didn’t like talking about his situation after games.
