Gordon Beckham experienced shoulder pain in the off-season

One ailment that has stayed under the radar is Gordon Beckham’s sore right shoulder. Beckham said his shoulder feels much better, and he has started the past two games.

Still, some Sox insiders were concerned that the injury may be chronic, but Beckham insisted the injury was caused by a long layoff from throwing this past winter. Beckham said he usually took only one month off from throwing when he played at the University of Georgia but devoted much of last winter to strengthening his body.

“Really, it’s gotten a lot better,” Beckham said. “We kind of knew it would. It just took some time (because of the) start-up pain, but it’s feeling good, ready to go.

“My shoulder has wear and tear like everyone else. It’s just more start-up pain for me. I’ve never had this much time off, and I think having the time off, the shoulder got very tight. And we had to keep loosening it up and finally we’re where we want to be.”
