FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox have released a statement saying Josh Beckett suffered a mild concussion after being hit in the left side of the head with a baseball during the team's batting practice prior to its game against the Twins at City of Palms Park Monday. He was sent home from the park and will be reevaluated Tuesday.
Beckett, who is scheduled to start Thursday against the Phillies, was standing in left-center field when a ball deflected off of coach Ino Guerrero's fungo bat. After being escorted off the field by the team's medical staff, the pitcher didn't have to go to the hospital, instead being treated at the park.
Beckett pitched in his first spring training game of the season Sunday night, giving up a run on two hits over two innings. He threw 23 pitches, 15 of which were for strikes. After the contest, he said, "If I'm healthy, the numbers will be there."

Rookie Avery Bradley, who has played 10 minutes in his five games since returning from the D-League, likely will back up Rondo for the time being.
