Youk not worried about sprained left ankle
CHICAGO -- Third baseman Kevin Youkilis left the White Sox's 8-2 win over the Twins on Wednesday in the fourth inning after mildly spraining his left ankle rounding first on a third-inning RBI single.

Youkilis said he plans on returning to the lineup for Friday's series opener in Texas against the Rangers. The White Sox have an off-day Thursday.

"It's just a mild sprain. I've played with a lot worse all year," Youkilis said. "Friday I'll be good to go."

Youkilis played the top of the fourth inning before exiting in the bottom of the frame when he was pinch-hit for by Eduardo Escobar.
