ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Yankees infielder Kevin Youkilis has been scratched from the starting lineup for the series opener at Tampa Bay because of back pain.

Youkilis had been down to play first base in Monday night's lineup. Youkilis missed Sunday's game at Toronto due to lower back stiffness.

New York said his back tightened up after he took batting practice. Youkilis, the replacement for injured starter Mark Teixeira, was in turn replaced by Lyle Overbay.
