The Boston Red Sox have announced that starting pitcher Josh Beckett will begin the season on the disabled list. He has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lower back.

At press time, it is not clear how long Beckett will be sidelined. With a back injury, you can never tell if it is going to be a short-term injury or a long-term injury.

This news comes right before the Red Sox begin their season. The Red Sox are slated to begin their season tomorrow in Toyko, Japan against the Oakland Athletics.

These two games will play a two-game set in Japan before returning to the United States to conclude their season. Following the two games in Japan, the two teams will play two additional games at the McAfee Coliseum in Oakland, California.

The Rex Sox will then travel to Toronto, Ontario, Canada for their second series. They will play a three-game set in Toronto, before beginning their home opener against the Detroit Tigers.

During the 2007 season, Beckett had a career-high 20 wins. He went 20-7 overall in 30 starts. He also had one complete game.

In the past two seasons with the Red Sox, Beckett has gone 36-18.

In 2007, Beckett allowed 76 runs (73 earned runs) in 200 2/3 innings. He also struck out 194 batters and walked 40.
