Red Sox RHP Beckett likely to start Wednesday
Beckett was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday against Minnesota. He had left his previous outing after 2 2-3 innings because of a back spasm.
Boston manager Bobby Valentine said Beckett threw on the side Saturday afternoon and "felt great."
Beckett has had a subpar season, going 5-9 with a 4.54 ERA in 18 starts.
