BOSTON (AP) – Major league ERA leader Josh Beckett is sick and will miss Tuesday night’s scheduled start for the Boston Red Sox.

Manager Terry Francona says Beckett, who has a 1.86 ERA, will be replaced by Alfredo Aceves in the second game of the three-game series against the San Diego Padres.

Francona says Beckett has “intestinal turmoil” and hasn’t felt well for a few days. He had planned to go home to see if he recovered enough to pitch on Tuesday. But Francona says if Beckett is worried about pitching it would be better to move his start back. He did not say when Beckett would pitch again.

Aceves has three starts in his 18 appearances. John Lackey is scheduled to pitch the series finale on Wednesday.

Boston beat San Diego 14-5 on Monday night.
