Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Josh Beckett may miss his first start, according to a tweet from Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald.

It is unclear what the issue with Beckett’s thumb is, however the All-Star hurler has had issues with blisters on his pitching hand throughout his career. He has only pitched 200 innings or more three times in his 11-year career.
