Josh Beckett will start for the Red Sox on Thursday or Friday

Josh Beckett missed his last turn in the Red Sox’s rotation with a sprained ankle suffered on September 5, but manager Terry Francona announced this afternoon that he’s slated to start Thursday or Friday.

Beckett threw a bullpen session yesterday and reported no problems, but Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports that whether he returns Thursday or Friday “will be based on how he feels and which day he prefers.”

Presumably the Red Sox (and Beckett) will make that decision tomorrow, so for now they still have “TBA” listed for both days.
