Beckett resumes workouts, but will miss next start

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Josh Beckett was given clearance to begin resuming physical activity Wednesday morning, but will not appear in a game until sometime next week.

"He passed his test,'' said Terry Francona, "which means he's allowed to do some activity. Now, they have to monitor his activity. But he'll do some biking and some light throwing and see how he progresses from there.

"He's not going to pitch Thursday against Philadelphia, as he had been scheduled. We'll just keep him on his schedule to pitch his next time out. How he gets to that start is up to how he feels and what he and Curt Young, pitching coach decide to do.''

Tentatively, that next start will probably come Tuesday when a split-squad of Red Sox host Houston. Another group will go to Jupiter to face St. Louis, but it's hard to imagine the Sox sending Beckett on a three-hour bus ride for his outing.

Red Sox pitching prospect Stolmy Pimentel will take Beckett's turn againt the Phillies Thursday.

Infielder Brent Dlugach went to be examined Wednesday morning after suffering a dislocated left shoulder Tuesday afternoon.

"When we get the results,'' said Francona, "the doctors will update everybody."

Red Sox outfield "Win, Dance, Repeat" celebration finds its way on MLB the Show 17

Mooke Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and a mix of Andrew Benintendi, Brock Holt, Blake Swihart and Chris Young brought postgame celebrations to a new level last season.

Most Sox fans are familiar with the outfield victory "Win, Dance, Repeat" where the trio would dance and pretend to photograph the game's best player between them. The celebration ended with a pose at first, but as seen the MLB the Show 17's freshly released trailer, a few more wrinkes were added in.

In fact, here's a taste of the celebrations and what else to expect from Playstation's 2017 MLB game:
