Any recent word on Beckett? Is he going to start the year on the DL?

Not sure about the DL or not but here's the latest from the Boston Globe:

Amalie Benjamin, Globe Staff wrote:Josh Beckett threw 45 pitches in a bullpen session Friday in Fort Myers. He is scheduled to throw another bullpen today, as he works his way back from the lower back injury that kept him from accompanying the team to Japan.

Nick Cafardo, Globe Staff wrote:FORT MYERS - According to Sox farm director Mike Hazen, Josh Beckett threw two very good innings against Double-A hitters this morning at the minor league complex. The game, originally scheduled for 1 p.m. was played at 10:30 a.m. to beat the rain forecast in the area.

Hazen said Beckett was throwing about 93 mph and had good movement on his pitches which had hitters shaking their heads. Beckett threw 32 pitches and appears ready to advance to the next level - which could be four innings five days from today.

Rotowire Update

3/24 - Beckett (back) will be placed on the DL by the Red Sox, retroactive to March 19, the team's official site reports.

The move means that the earliest Beckett will pitch is April 4. On the plus side, Beckett is reportedly progressing well in his rehab and the Sox are hopeful he can be activated at or right around the time he's eligible.

Sounds like Beckett is still on track to pitch sometime during the Toronto series.

Amalie Benjamin, Globe Staff wrote:Josh Beckett had his best side day of the spring, according to a conversation John Farrell had with the pitcher. The best case scenario has Beckett pitching in Toronto, during the three-game series April 4-6.

Beckett threw 47 pitches, 33 for strikes, in four innings of work. He allowed one hit, a single by Rene Tosoni to lead off the fourth inning, and struck out six.

Catcher George Kottaras hit a three-run homer for the Sea Dogs.

Beckett, who is suffering from a sore back, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday retroactive to March 19. He is eligible to come off the disabled list on April 3, the day before the Sox play their first game against the Blue Jays.

Beckett pitches for Sea Dogs


Yeah i heard about this last night. Its a great sign that he pitched great in a minor league game, but i think we have to hear an update from the Red Sox or directly from Beckett to see how hes feeling and how hes recovering.

Steve Silva, Boston.com Staff wrote:In what was likely his final tuneup before rejoining the rotation, Red Sox ace Josh Beckett fared well against minor leaguers today in an extended spring training game in Fort Myers, Fla.

According to ABC7 sports reporter Noah Pransky, Beckett showed no signs of the back injury that kept him from starting the season opener in Japan, allowing just two hits in five innings while striking out six. The only run off Beckett came on a solo homer from Yahmed Yema, a Single A outfielder. Beckett threw 64 pitches, 47 for strikes.

The Sox have yet to decide officially whether Beckett will pitch Sunday in Toronto, following Tim Wakefield and Clay Buchholz. Over the weekend, manager Terry Francona implied that barring a setback, Beckett will be ready to face the Blue Jays. He is eligible to come off the disabled list Thursday.

Francona said Beckett may have some concerns about going deep into the game, but he said with the Sox having an offday the following day (after Sunday's game in Toronto), overtaxing the bullpen is not an issue.

Background material from the Globe's Gordon Edes was used in this report.


Beckett sharp again

Nick Cafardo, Globe Staff wrote: OAKLAND, Calif. - It looks like Josh Beckett will oppose Roy Halladay next Sunday at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

That was after Beckett had a successful final outing today for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox in Fort Myers, Fla., against the Lowell Spinners. Beckett went five innings and threw 64 pitches and came out of the outing with his once-sore back feeling fine.

"More likely than not he's going to pitch the final game in Toronto," said Sox manager Terry Francona before the game against the A's. "I reserve the right to sit with Theo [Epstein], John [Farrell] and Josh together, and there's no reason to have that conversation until he does his work after the start."
