Josh Beckett - P, Florida Marlins
May 7, 8:54 p.m.
The Marlins pulled Beckett from Wednesday's game after one inning when he complained of discomfort in his elbow. After Beckett was examined by team physician Dr. Dan Kanell, the Marlins hastily scheduled an appointment with orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., on Thursday. Beckett threw 28 pitches in his only inning against the Giants, including more curves than usual. He walked Benito Santiago with the bases loaded and departed trailing 1-0. The discomfort was on the inside of his right elbow, the Marlins said. Beckett, 22, has never had arm trouble. He spent three stints on the disabled list last year because of recurring blisters on the middle finger of his pitching hand.
