Beckett scratched from Sunday start
Josh Beckett will not be making his scheduled start on Sunday against the Twins. The news was passed along this morning that he was scratched due to illness. There are no more details as of now regarding the nature of Beckett’s illness, but I’ll pass any information along once we get it.
In his place, right-hander Ryne Miller will get the start. Miller signed as a non-drafted free agent in July of 2007. He split the year between Salem and Portland, pitching largely in relief, and went 10-4 with a 2.76 ERA over 94 2/3 IP.
