The tenure of Kevin Youkilis in Boston has come to an end.
The Red Sox have traded third baseman Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox for pitcher Zach Stewart and a utility player.
The trade is expected to be made official after the White Sox game with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Youkilis was taken out of the game in the 7th inning of the Red Sox win against the Atlanta Braves after he hit an RBI triple. Manager Bobby Valentine said during the postgame press conference that Youkilis was lifted for a pinch runner because GM Ben Cherington told him "there's a situation pending"
Zach Stewart is 1-2 with an ERA of 6.00 with the White Sox this season. Stewart is 3-8 with an ERA of 5.92 in his career with the White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays.
