Red Sox Vs. Orioles Lineups: Kevin Youkilis Returns, Adrian Gonzalez Moves To Right Field

The Red Sox will have Kevin Youkilis back in the lineup Tuesday night, with Adrian Gonzalez moving to right field to accomodate Youkilis' return to first as the Red Sox take on the Orioles. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. EST with broadcasts by NESN and WEEI.

For weeks we've been wondering whether the Sox would give up having Will Middlebrooks' bat in the lineup and glove in the field when Kevin Youkilis made his return. Now the answer seems to have been made for them with the broken foot of Cody Ross bringing their outfield to new lows. Having Adrian Gonzalez in right field is far from ideal, but the differences in bats between the likes of Che-Hsuan Lin and Will Middlebrooks seems to have been massive enough to warrant the switch, at least on a short-term basis.
