This just in: Josh Beckett did not change his home warm-up routine

07.31.12 at 7:09 pm ET

After all the hullabaloo stemming from observations by both Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine and pitching coach Bob McClure that Josh Beckett’s first-inning problems may be a product a warm-up regimen that is typically five-10 minutes earlier than the opposing pitcher, Beckett had this to say …

“I’ve pretty much always been on the same exact schedule,” he said. “I usually start long-tossing at [6]:32 [p.m.]. I do a little stretching at :25 to :27. Then on the bullpen mound at :40. That’s a non-issue.”

But, judging by his warm-up routine Tuesday night, nothing changed.

Beckett started his long-tossing at 6:33, before moving to the bullpen, where he began his throwing at 6:40. The righty finished the process at 6:56. Meanwhile, Justin Verlander began his bullpen throwing at about five minutes after his Red Sox counterpart.
