Beckett Scratched With Shoulder Inflammation; Morales Will Get Sunday Start

Josh Beckett has right shoulder inflammation and will miss his start on Sunday night against the Cubs. Franklin Morales will get the start.

Bobby Valentine:
Training room thinks that it's best that he rests it a little. He may get some tests. I think they want to do a baseline [test] and figure out where we are with that whole situation.
Beckett missed a start earlier this season because of a strained lat muscle.

Morales last started a major league game in April 2009. This season, he pitched 4.1 innings of relief on June 3, throwing 52 pitches.
