Beckett didn't throw curves, the pitch that would put the most stress on the new skin despite the use of a covering, something Beckett does in most side sessions…Overall, the management of this injury doesn't increase his risk over the already ever-present recurrence risk he's already carrying.
After reading Will Carroll’s take on Beckett yesterday, it made me think of Rob Neyer’s earlier assessment…
…it's more likely that Beckett simply is not built to pitch effectively and give his team 200 innings. He can do one or the other. Not both.
Could it be that Beckett has to throw his curve to be effective and that pitch causes a skin problem that limits his ability to stay on the mound? I can't believe I just wrote that. I now need to take Chub’s advice.
