Kevin Youkilis traded to White Sox

The Red Sox have traded infielder Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox for minor-league pitcher Zach Stewart and utilityman Brent Lillibridge. The Red Sox will be paying $5.5 million of what remains on Youkilis' $12.5 million contract for '12. Stewart, who has two options left, will report to Triple-A Pawtucket, while Lillibridge, who is out of options, is expected to join the Red Sox Monday.

According a source, the Indians, Dodgers and White Sox were considered the finalists for Youkilis' services as of Saturday night, with the White Sox separating themselves

Youkilis was pulled from the Red Sox' 9-4 win over the White Sox Sunday in the seventh inning after hitting a two-out triple, being replaced by Nick Punto. The two players embraced in the middle of the diamond before Youkilis was greeted with hugs from a multitude of teammates in front of the home dugout.

After the game players said they had been informed Youkilis would be removed...

Ross, Youkilis power Sox past Braves

Cody Ross hit a pair of home runs, and Kevin Youkilis responded to a pair of standing ovations with two hits, as the Red Sox beat the Braves in the teams' series finale, 9-4, Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Besides the Sox' offensive output, which included Adrian Gonzalez' sixth homer of the season, the day was highlighted by the crowd's saluting Youkilis, both in the third baseman's first at-bat and when he was lifted for a pinch-runner in the seventh. The final round applause included numerous embraces from Youkilis' teammates, with the 33-year-old responding to the crowd by taking his helmet off while also offering a curtain call.

Earning the win for the Red Sox was starter Aaron Cook, who held the Braves scoreless through the first four innings before allowing three runs in the fifth. Making his second start for the Sox -- and first since coming back from a knee laceration -- Cook finished his five-inning outing allowing two earned runs on six...

Updated: Youkilis receives standing ovations

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis received a standing ovation prior to his first at-bat during the Sox' game against the Braves Sunday at Fenway Park. He acknowledged the reception by taking off his batting helmet and tipping it to the crowd prior to the second-inning plate appearance.

Youkilis finished the at-bat hitting a hard grounder back at Atlanta starter Mike Minor, who failed to handle the smash, resulting in a single for the Red Sox' No. 6 hitter. 

Then, in the seventh inning, after tripling to right field, Youkilis received another standing ovation upon being pinch-run for by Nick Punto. While running off the field, he engaged in an embrace with Punto in the middle of the diamond, then took off his helmet to salute the fans before hugging numerous Red Sox teammates just in front of the home dugout. Youkilis would come back for one more curtain call, acknowledging the applause.

Update: According to multiple sources, Youkilis...

Report: Heat, Clippers front-runners for Allen

Citing a “source very close with [Ray] Allen’s situation” ESPN New York’s Jared Zwerling reports that if Allen does not re-sign with the Celtics, the Heat and the Clippers are the most likely destinations for the five-time All-Star. The report explains that part of the reasoning stems from the fact the Heat and Clippers are the top teams able to offer more than the veteran’s minimum of $1.4 million.

Also noted is that if Allen should stay in Boston, he will likely cede his starting role to Avery Bradley and come off of the bench. In Miami, Allen would also come off the bench behind Dwyane Wade. In Los Angeles, however, Allen projects to start ahead of Randy Foye, assuming Allen is able to make a full recovery from offseason ankle surgery. The Clippers can also offer Allen the most money.

Buchholz to DL with gastrointestinal issue
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox placed starting pitcher Clay Buchholz on the disabled list Sunday with what manager Bobby Valentine called a "gastrointestinal situation."

The team is still awaiting more particulars on the issue, but Valentine said the Sox are "hoping that we'll get him back at the end of the 15 days."

According to a series of tweets from WHDH's Joe Amorosino, Buchholz was hospitalized with intestinal bleeding and is looking at a recovery time of 10-14 days. Amorosino also reports that anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen are likely the cause of the intestinal bleeding. Valentine would not say whether or not Buchholz was in the hospital Sunday, though he did acknowledge that the pitcher had been at an earlier point and hasn't been with the the team for the last two days. 

The manager said he was unaware of how the issue...
