Appearing as a guest on The Big Show on Wednesday, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said he didn't think Josh Beckett would require a trip to the disabled list after his back tightened up in the third inning of Tuesday's game against the Tigers.
"I doubt that. It doesn't seem like a DL," Valentine said. "But again, when Josh left last night he was tight. The trainer's report so far today and Ben [Cherrington] had talked to Josh, was it just a little tight and we'll take it, as we do, day by day."
