Kevin Youkilis Diagnosed With Bursitis In Hip

According to Terry Francona, Kevin Youkilis' exam back in Boston has revealed that the Red Sox third baseman is suffering from bursitis in his hip.

The Red Sox have some recent experience with bursitis, of course. David Ortiz endured bursitis in his heel back in late August, costing him a week of games before he was able to return.

Youkilis received an anti-inflammatory injection in his hip to help combat his injury, and while Terry Francona wasn't ready to rule out a return to the team in Tampa, it seems unlikely that the Sox will have their starting third baseman back before they return home to Boston.
