Here's the Red Sox' full statement on Josh Beckett

The righthander won't need surgery on his ankle.

The Red Sox released a statement on Josh Beckett's sprained right ankle tonight.

Here it is, in full:

“Josh was evaluated today at the Massachusetts General Hospital by the Red Sox medical staff, including team foot and ankle specialist, Dr. George Theodore. Josh experienced pain in his ankle while pitching last night. His examination was consistent with an ankle sprain. An MRI was performed that confirmed no other injury to his ankle tendons, or his Achilles tendon. We will re-evaluate his symptoms and availability later this week."
