BOSTON — Kevin Youkilis will not be in the starting lineup Thursday night as the White Sox close out a four-game series at Fenway Park. Youkilis has a tight left hamstring, but hopes to start Friday in Detroit.
Eduardo Escobar will play third and bat ninth.
Alexei Ramirez is batting second in Youkilis’ usual spot.
Rookie left-hander Jose Quintana will start against Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz.
Youkilis has 18 RBI in 19 games since coming to the White Sox from Boston in a trade on June 24.
