i am pretty sure he is out for season, his injury is pretty serious to the point that he can lose mobility in his thumb forever if he doesn't get it taken care of, i doubt the sox are going to jeopardize his career with bring him back soon/this season.

p.s. i am surprised not more people are posting about Youk.. this dude was raking all season.

I agree, why is no one talking about this? This forum seems to be going down the tubes lately, not much updates...

Youk is officially out for the season... big huge mega bummer!! :-t :~( . Having surgery on his thumb. At least they didn't try to play him through it though, because word has it that if he did, it coulda become a career ender.

From his Yahoo! page,
Aug 5 1B Kevin Youkilis is scheduled for season-ending surgery on his right thumb Friday morning. After consulting with nationally-renowned hand specialist Dr. Thomas Graham in Cleveland on Thursday morning, it was decided that surgery was necessary. Youkilis tore the adductor muscle in his right thumb while swinging at a pitch Monday night against the Indians, but said it had been a nagging problem for almost a week. Youkilis will be immobilized for six weeks following the surgery and wouldn't be available to play for the again in 2010 unless "they were playing on Thanksgiving", according to Sox manager Terry Francona. The Sox are looking at "complimentary solutions" at first base to go along with Mike Lowell, and could be in the market for a lefty-swinging first baseman like free agent Carlos Delgado. "Everybody knows that Youk is a guy that plays the game hard. He's just like (second baseman Dustin) Pedroia. When you see those guys coming out of the game (with injuries), you know something is going down," said David Ortiz. "I remember the way he looked like after he hit that ball (Monday night). I knew there was definitely something wrong with Youk. That's a guy that will play through pain. Everybody is aware of that."
