PITTSBURGHRight-hander Josh Beckett, who has not started since June 15, sidelined by a stomach ailment, is scheduled to start Tuesday in Philadelphia, opposed by Cliff Lee. Francona does not believe the down time will affect Beckett.

He wasnt hurt, Francona said. Just sick.

Jason Varitek is scheduled to catch Beckett Tuesday.
