Twins Vs. White Sox: Kevin Youkilis Leaves Game With Ankle Sprain

Chicago White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis left Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Twins with a mild sprain to his left ankle. He turned his ankle while running the bases in the first inning, but battled through the injury before ultimately leaving the game in the fourth inning.

At this point, Youkilis is considered day-to-day given that the injury isn't particularly serious. He was able to stay in the game for a few innings before the pain became too much, at which point Eduardo Escobar came out to pinch hit in the fourth frame.

Over 108 plate appearances with Chicago this year, the 33-year-old has hit .272/.370/.478 with five homers.
