UPDATED Youkilis out 10-12 weeks, will have back surgery

(This information was transmitted via a flurry of tweets from beat writers and Meredith Marakovits of the YES Network.)

Well, it’s like the title of the post says, Kevin Youkilis has a herniated disk that needs to be surgically repaired this Thursday which means he will be out at least 10-12 weeks.

Youkilis was batting .219/.305/.343/.648 in 2013.

Yeah…That was a great signing.

UPDATE: Via Daniel Barbarisi of WSJ, Brian Cashman says for the moment they wont look to acquire a new 3b, will wait for ARod’s return.
