Beachy lasted just four innings Sunday, allowing three runs in his first start since 2013.

He was throwing in the 88-91 mph range as expected. Beachy should slot in the post-break rotation and should be owned in deeper formats.

Beachy (elbow) has been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and will get the start Saturday.

After recovering from his second Tommy John surgery, Beachy will be making his first major league start Saturday since 2013. He'll be facing a very right-handed heavy Brewers lineup in his return to the mound. The Dodgers optioned Josh Ravin to Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.

Beachy (elbow) will start Saturday against the Brewers, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Beachy was expected to receive the start Saturday, but reports were contradictory on that front. He's now been confirmed, and will make his first major league start since 2013.

Beachy (elbow) will join the Dodgers in LA, and could start Saturday against the Brewers, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

An earlier report indicated that Beachy was no longer being considered for the start, but this move contradicts that outcome. It seems now he's the likely starter Saturday, but the team should officially announce that at some point prior to the game.

Beachy (elbow) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

The Dodgers were reportedly giving some consideration to activating Beachy to start Saturday against the Brewers, but they will instead leave him down for one more minor league outing. It makes sense that the team would want to use the maximum amount of time for Beachy's rehab, as he is working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery. He could be an option to join the rotation after the All-Star break.

Beachy (elbow) is a candidate to start Saturday against the Brewers, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander built his pitch count up to 92 in his fourth rehab outing with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday (fifth overall), tossing six innings of three-run ball with two walks and five strikeouts. He is eligible to make another rehab start, but the Dodgers have an immediate need in the rotation with Carlos Frias (back) landing on the DL. Beachy has missed the past year and a half following his second Tommy John surgery.

Beachy (elbow) threw 92 pitches over six innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.

Beauty gave up three earned runs in Monday's game, but more importantly, he was able to extend his pitch count into the low 90s and toss six innings for the first time since beginning his rehab assignment June 16. The Dodgers have an opening in their rotation on the same day Beachy is next scheduled to pitch, so it's possible his next outing could come with the big club.

Beachy struck out three batters over two scoreless innings during Sunday's rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City, Pedro Moura of the Orange County Register reports.

Making the second appearance of what figures to be a lengthy rehab assignment, Beachy reportedly threw his fastball in the range of 87-88 mph. He clearly still needs to build up arm strength, but the right-hander could be an option for the Los Angeles rotation (or bullpen) at some point around the All-Star break.

Beachy (elbow) tossed 1.2 innings for High-A Rancho Cucamonga in his first rehab outing since undergoing Tommy John surgery last March.

It was Beachy's second Tommy John procedure in a 21-month span, so his long-term prospects remain cloudy. He's likely to need the maximum 30 days of rehab before the Dodgers decide what to do with him.
