Ken Rosenthal of Fox reported this morning that Josh Beckett will be at the Cleveland Clinic today to get a second opinion on his injured right thumb from Dr. Thomas Graham.

Two sources tell the Globe that Beckett was cleared to pitch on Monday by Dr. Mark Bagg, a specialist in Texas. The visit to Dr. Graham is simply a precaution. Barring the unexpected, Beckett will start against the Tigers on Saturday.

Andrew Bailey also is scheduled to see Dr. Graham today. As was reported on Monday, he is expected to need surgery. It is not clear how long he would be out.
