The Red Sox [team stats]' injury list continues to pile up. Yesterday, both Kevin Youkilis [stats] and Erik Bedard were in Boston receiving treatment on their new injuries, and then John Lackey was knocked out of his start early last night. Youkilis received an injection to alleviate discomfort from a case of bursitis he is experiencing in his left hip, a problem that flared up in Thursday night's series finale in Toronto. Depending on how Youkilis responds to the shot, he could wind up flying here before first pitch tonight if he and the Sox feel he could help the team, even if that's in a pinch-hitting role. Bedard was expected back here late last night, after he was examined for a mild strain in his left lat muscle. Lackey got hit hard in the left calf in the third inning on a John Jaso comebacker. After throwing out Jaso, Lackey walked off the field under his own power.
New ailments for Youk, Bedard, Lackey
