Royals Vs. White Sox Lineups: Kevin Youkilis, Alejandro De Aza Back On Wednesday

The Chicago White Sox have center fielder Alejandro De Aza and third baseman Kevin Youkilis back in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals after the pair sat out of Tuesday's game. Both players are dealing with nagging injuries, so manager Robin Ventura has tried to mix things up as the stretch run comes.

On Tuesday, De Aza sat out of his second consecutive game with back soreness, while Youkilis was a late scratch due to a sore right knee after initially being tabbed to start. Jordan Danks and Ray Olmedo played center field and third base, respectively, in Chicago's 5-2 defeat. Danks is starting again on Wednesday in right field as Alex Rios gets the day off.

Here's the full set of lineups, courtesy of Baseball Press:
