Beckett to throw off a mound tomorrow

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Want some good news?

Josh Beckett will report to Fenway Park tomorrow and throw off the mound in the bullpen. In theory, that would line him up to start on Thursday or Friday.

Terry Francona that while that is what Beckett wants to do, the teams wants to make sure the righthander is OK before they schedule him for a game.

“We’ll see. I don’t know. I think that might be a little ambitious but I think he wants to do it, which is a good sign,” Francona said. “We’ll see how he feels.”

Clay Buchholz will long toss again on Tuesday and then get on the mound.
