Report: Kevin Youkilis Traded To White Sox

According to Rob Bradford, a clubhouse source has indicated that Kevin Youkilis has been traded to the Chicago White Sox.

There's no word yet on the details of the deal, but the writing has been on the wall for a while now with Youkilis, and with Bobby Valentine giving him a sentimental send-off in today's game based on word from Ben Cherington that a deal was in the works, it seems like the time has finally come.

Who the Red Sox will get in return remains to be seen, but earlier in the week the name Matt Thornton was being tossed around plenty. The Red Sox are not in need of a reliever, but the White Sox have a barren farm system and, if Thornton is coming over, that likely opens the Sox up to making trades with their overstocked relief corps, and relievers are always gold at the deadline.
