On Friday Red Sox Third Baseman Kevin Youkilis was named as a late addition to the 2011 All-Star Team in Arizona. Youk will join teammated David Ortiz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Adrian Gonzalez, and Josh Beckett at the event. Kevin was inserted because of an injury to Yankee's 3B Alex Rodriguez. Former teammate Adrian Beltre will get the start for The AL.
This will be Kevin Youkilis' 3rd All-Star Selection, and first selection as a 3rd baseman. Youkilis is hitting .276 on the season, but .300 since May 1st.
