The Boston Red Sox continue to say that right-hander Josh Beckett will be fine. But the pitcher on Tuesday will join teammate Andrew Bailey in Cleveland to see Dr. Robert Graham, a hand specialist at the Cleveland Clinic, according to major-league sources. The team wants Beckett to visit Graham for "peace of mind" and still expects him to pitch the second game of the season, sources say. But the visit will mark the second time in two days that Beckett has seen a hand specialist for a thumb problem - he was in San Antonio on Monday to see Dr. Mark Bagg. Bailey, too, is suffering from a thumb problem, and team doctors in Boston determined on Monday that he will require surgery, according to the Boston Globe. Graham will offer a second opinion on Bailey Tuesday. After that, the team will make a final determination.
