"Move over chicken and beer. Golf has been entered into the Red Sox mix.
According to a report by 98.5 The Sports Hub's Hardy, Red Sox righthander Josh Beckett played golf in the area last Thursday afternoon, two days before he was scheduled to miss a start against the Orioles because of stiffness in his latissimus muscle.
The Sports Hub's Michael Felger said the report had been confirmed when he opened the Felger and Mazz show today, but that Hardy did not reveal the name of the golf course to protect his sources. Clay Buchholz was reportedly golfing with Beckett on the off day for the Red Sox.
After Beckett's 126-pitch effort last Sunday in Chicago, the Red Sox announced that Beckett's next start would be skipped because the righthander admitted he had soreness in his lat muscle. He also admitted that the situation existed before his last start."
