Beckett to return on Friday in Seattle

Two quick updates for you:

* Josh Beckett will pitch Friday in Seattle with Jon Lester and Daisuke Matsuzaka getting pushed back a day. It seems like Tim Wakefield’s final start (for now) will be Tuesday.

* Victor Martinez played catch before the game and said his left thumb still felt sore. But he was able to squeeze the glove a little. Terry Francona called it a baby step but still a significant one.
