Josh Beckett To Undergo Surgery On Ribs
Its a potentially career-threatening injury for the 33-year-old right-hander and Beckett talked to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times about how much the hand numbness has impacted his performance (and life):
"Id try to drive with my right hand and my right hand would go numb. Id throw a bullpen, and I couldnt feel my hand. Being ready for next year, and for spring training, without any limitations is probably the most realistic goal."
