No, the Red Sox didn't get much for Kevin Youkilis when they traded him Sunday, but they never expected to under the circumstances. They got a righthanded reliever, Zach Stewart, whom they will turn into a starter at Pawtucket. He is just 25, and the Sox have scouted him since he was at Texas Tech. They got utilityman Brent Lillibridge, 28, a righthanded hitter who can play both the infield and outfield and will join Boston's 25-man roster as early as Monday.
It's a nice sendoff for Youkilis
