Yankees manager Joe Torre said before Saturday's game he got the news from general manager Brian Cashman.
``Getting hit is part of the game,'' Torre said. ``If you take pitching inside away, you can't survive in this game.''
Youkilis approached the mound after he was hit by a pitch that veered near his head in the ninth inning of New York's 9-5 victory. The benches and bullpens emptied, and Proctor was immediately ejected.
Proctor was suspended for four games last month after pitching inside and sparking a brawl against the Seattle Mariners.
