New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) was with the team Sunday, Aug. 11, and said he is hopeful of playing again this season.
Fantasy Tip: Youkilis is less than two months removed from undergoing surgery to fix a herniated disc in his back. The odds of him returning appear to be very slim.

New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) will have back surgery to fix a herniated disc Thursday, June 21, and he'll be out for the next 10 to 12 weeks, at minimum.
Fantasy Tip: As Sherman suggests, Youk's career with the Yanks is likely done. Don't expect him to play again this season. It's probably safe to drop him in most mixed leagues at this point. Until Alex Rodriguez (hip) returns sometime after the All-Star break, the Yanks will continue to use a combo of David Adams and Jayson Nix at the hot corner.
