Kevin Youkilis went hitless today, his second straight game without a hit during his rehab stint at Triple-A Pawtucket.
"I asked him if he wanted to go to Double-A," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "He said, 'No.'"
Youkilis is expected to be activated on Wednesday, the first day he's eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list. He still leads the major leagues in on-base percentage (.505), slugging percentage (.719) and OPS (1.224).
