BOSTON (AP) -- Brent Lillibridge's first day with the Boston Red Sox had him flashing back to his first day in the big leagues.

Lillibridge, acquired from the Chicago White Sox along with right-hander Zach Stewart for veteran Kevin Youkilis and cash on Sunday, stood at his new locker and expressed some nervous energy that he hadn't felt in five years.

The utility player was looking forward to a new start while getting to know his new surroundings and teammates.

Lillibridge hit .175 with two RBI and seven stolen bases in 48 games with the White Sox.
