FORT MYERS, Fla. Josh Beckett is pitching to Jarrod Saltalamacchia in a Class A game right now. Via the iPhone, we'll keep you posted.

Beckett is facing Orioles prospects. He is though two innings and 23 pitches.

UPDATE, 1:20 p.m.: Beckett is though four innings and 49 pitches. He has allowed three hits and has struck out five without a walk.

Second base prospect Sean Coyle made a terrific play to save a hit. He went behind the mound to grab a slowly hit ball and threw across his body to first.

Also saw Xander Bogaerts homer and Jackie Bradley Jr. show off his speed with a triple.

UPDATE, 2:10 p.m.: Beckett is done after 78 pitches, 57 strikes. His line: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 1 HBP.

Salty was 1 for 2.
