We already knew that Mark Teixeira was heading this way on Wednesday for the 10:35 a.m. game against Erie. That alone was enough to send attendance through the roof at Arm & Hammer Park. Add the possibility of Kevin Youkilis to the mix, however, and it's bound to be standing room only here tomorrow morning.
Erik Boland of Newsday tweeted the following earlier this afternoon:
"Teixeira and Youkilis both played in extended spring games today in Tampa. Looks as if both are headed to Trenton tomorrow."
To my knowledge, Youkilis would be the first player who was a member of the Thunder when it was a Boston affiliate to rehab with the club now that it is in the Yankees system.
