Shoulder Shelves Beckett

CHICAGO (AP) _ Boston Red Sox right-hander Josh Beckett will
miss his next start because of inflammation in his right shoulder.
He was scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Chicago Cubs.

Manager Bobby Valentine says Beckett will remain on the roster
“for now” but might undergo tests this weekend.
Valentine spoke after Friday’s 3-0 loss to the Cubs.

He says Beckett is “not quite recovering on a five-day
rotation.” The 32-year-old has lost three consecutive starts and
is 4-7 with a 4.14 ERA.

Left-hander Franklin Morales will start in Beckett’s place. He
has a 3.04 ERA in 22 relief appearances this season.
