The New York Yankees protested their 7-6 loss to Boston on Tuesday night because they claimed there was no indication of an injury to Red Sox starter Josh Beckett before he came out in the fifth inning.

Relief pitcher Manny Delcarmen was given all the time he needed to warm up after Beckett was removed.

The Yankees filed their protest with umpire crew chief Larry Vanover after the fifth. New York was leading 5-0 at the time.

The Yankees have 24 hours to file a formal protest with the commissioner’s office.

After Robinson Cano hit a two-run double, Boston pitching coach John Farrell visited the mound. After consulting with Beckett, he waved to the bullpen. Red Sox manager Terry Francona and a trainer then went to the mound.

Beckett skipped his previous turn in the rotation because of back spasms.
