Josh Beckett Injury Update: Sprained Right Ankle

Josh Beckett hates pitching in Toronto, as evidenced by his 1-2 record in 9.27 ERA in six career starts at the Rogers Centre entering Monday’s Labor Day start.

Beckett pitched well through 3.2 innings though, striking out six and allowing zero runs. But, with two outs in the fourth, Beckett came up limping after a pitch and left the game with a sprained right ankle. Keep in mind that this is Beckett’s push-off ankle and not the one he lands on.

Obviously, the injury is a cause for concern considering that we’re in September and the playoffs are a few weeks away.

If Beckett needs some time off, look for Andrew Miller and Tim Wakefield to remain in the rotation, and maybe Kyle Weiland to make a few spot starts.
