White Sox Vs. Red Sox Lineups: Youkilis Is Back, Lillibridge Is Gone

On Monday night, the Chicago White Sox (49-39) take on the Boston Red Sox (45-44) for the first time since trading UT Brent Lillibridge and RHP Zach Stewart in exchange for 3B Kevin Youkilis.

Monday's game will mark a reunion of sorts as Youk' makes his first ever appearance at Fenway Park as an opposing player, but neither White Sox participant in the trade will be present. Stewart was optioned to Triple-A immediately after the trade while Lillibridge was designated for assignment Monday morning:

The 28-year-old Lillibridge had a miserable .189 weighted on-base average through 59 games, and may find himself out of the majors for a while as he looks to recover his typically modest hitting ability.

Here is a look at the day's lineups (courtesy of Baseball Press), with Youkilis hitting second again for the White Sox:
