Report: Josh Beckett Arrives Early to Spring Training, ‘Looked Good’ While Throwing 50 Pitches in Bullpen


February 14, 2012

Josh Beckett put together a solid campaign in 2011 before faltering alongside his Red Sox teammates late in the season. The right-hander is reportedly ready to get back to work in 2012, showing up early to the team's spring training facility.

The 31-year-old threw 50 pitches in the bullpen on Tuesday, according to The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham. Pitching coach Bob McClure reportedly said that Beckett "looked good," and that the righty is determined to win a division title.

Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report on Feb. 19, but some players — including Beckett, Jon Lester and Daniel Bard — have arrived to Fort Myers early.

According to Abraham, Felix Doubront and Alex Wilson also took the mound on Tuesday, and Junichi Tazawa arrived in camp.
