Beckett, who pitched a four-hit shutout in the opener of the first round series against the Los Angeles Angels, will start Friday's opener against the Indians. Schilling will start Game 2 on Saturday, in part on the strength of his seven shutout innings that helped Boston complete the three-game sweep of the Angels.
Matsuzaka would be in line for Game 3 in Cleveland, followed by Tim Wakefield.
Wakefield was left off the roster for the first round because of a back problem. If the knuckleballer is unable to go, Beckett could pitch on three days of rest and be back on full rest for a potential Game 7.
