Red Sox Place Pitcher Josh Beckett on Disabled List With Lower Back Strain
The Boston Red Sox placed pitcher Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.
Beckett left last night’s game at the New York Yankees after 4 2/3 innings because of tightness in his back after allowing five runs on five hits. Boston rallied with six runs over the final two innings to win 7-6. Beckett has a 1-1 record and a 7.29 earned run average this season.
