Josh Beckett Throws Simulated Game In Tampa

With his first rehab start canceled due to rain, Josh Beckett threw a simulated game to primarily Gulf Coast League batters at Tropicana Field on Tuesday.

Beckett was sharp in his outing, striking out five batters in the first three innings, and throwing 65 pitches (he was only expected to throw 55) in four innings of work.

Beckett will likely make his first actual start later this weekend, staying on track to return not too long after the All-Star Break.
