UFC 184:

Josh Beckett: (Shoulder) Will Miss Next Start

Update: Beckett will miss Saturday's start with a stiff lat muscle, the Boston Herald reports.

Recommendation: The Red Sox are not overly concerned about Beckett's status, but in an effort to prevent further injury after watching him throw 126 pitches in his last start, they will skip his next turn through the rotation and give the start to Aaron Cook. Manager Bobby Valentine was confident Beckett would miss just the one start, so expect him to return to the rotation later next week.
