Boston Red Sox right-hander Josh Beckett was torched by the Cleveland Indians for seven runs in 2 1/3 innings Thursday, raising his season ERA to 5.97. Beckett, who hadn't started since April 29 due to a sore shoulder, had actually pitched well in his previous four starts (2.92 ERA since April 13), but the Indians didn't have problems. Don't be surprised if Beckett is still hurting and needs a DL stint, but he does remain worth owning in all fantasy formats.
