Beachy (elbow) has left the team's spring training complex in Arizona and went home, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

There hasn't been any official word from the club, but signs would seem to point to Beachy having more issues with his arm.

Beachy has ceased throwing activities due to the tendinitis in his elbow, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Beachy was making progress, but seems to have re-aggravated the tendinitis, as he is no longer throwing. There is no timetable for his return.

Beachy (arm) resumed throwing off a mound Saturday, J.P Hoonstra of the Los Angeles News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Beachy has been battling arm tendinitis since early March, but he was finally able to get back on the mound Saturday after being given a week to rest following a disastrous outing against Arizona. He'll likely need a few more mound sessions before he can be considered a go for game action, however. Look for Beachy to start the year at Triple-A despite the rash of injuries to the back end of the Dodgers' rotation.

Beachy has been diagnosed with mild tendinitis in his right arm, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Entering Friday's start, Beachy had conceded no runs across five innings in two spring appearances, but the tables quickly turned. In addition to a 40-pitch second inning, he was removed in the third when he was unable to set down any of the first three batters. Because he has a pair of Tommy John surgeries on the medical chart, the Dodgers will take it easy with the non-roster invitee with the hope he'll reenter the competition for the final spot in the rotation.

Beachy will be given a few days to rest after coming out of Friday's start with arm soreness, MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

His velocity was down nearly three miles per hour in the third Friday following a 40-pitch second inning. Beachy, a non-roster invitee to major league spring training, came into camp saying he was no longer rehabbing after returning from his second Tommy John surgery in 2015. This may very well take him out of the running for the No. 5 rotation spot, leaving just Mike Bolsinger and Zach Lee.

Beachy was lit up by the Diamondbacks Friday, allowing six runs on five hits and four walks in just two innings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That likely puts him behind Mike Bolsinger, Zach Lee, and maybe others in the race for the No. 5 starter job. Beachy's ERA sits at 7.71 this spring.

Manager Dave Roberts listed Beachy as one of the two favorites to replace the injured Brett Anderson (back) in the Dodgers' rotation, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Beachy joined the Dodgers with only an outside chance to earn a spot in the rotation, but a number of injuries -- including the one Anderson suffered that will sideline him 3-to-5 months -- have helped his chances, as the battle for the fifth starter job now figures to come down to him and Mike Bolsinger. Beachy may have more upside than his counterpart, but Bolsinger made 21 starts for the Dodgers last season while the injury-prone Beachy made just 20 starts total over the last four years, so the Dodgers may simply opt for the more reliable option.

Beachy was outrighted to the Dodgers' Triple-A roster but will still appear at major league spring training.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Dodgers wanted to open up a spot on the 40-man roster, and Beachy proved to be the odd man out. He'll stay on as a non-roster invitee to spring training, but it is curious that the right-hander was the choice considering he's guaranteed to be paid $1.5 million this year. It would've been tough to crack the rotation as it was, but now it will be even tougher for Beachy to do so now that he's off the 40-man roster.

Beachy signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Dodgers on Wednesday, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The deal includes $2.75 million in incentives, including a roster bonus, incentives for games started and games pitched, which makes sense in Beachy's case. He has pitched just 38 big league innings since the start of 2013, with eight of those coming in two starts for the Dodgers last year, where he sported an unsavory 7.88 ERA. Considering how deep the Dodgers rotation is after a flurry of offseason moves, Beachy will have a hard time cracking the Opening Day roster as a starter, and might not even be first or second in line, should the Dodgers need a spot starter.

Beachy was activated from the 7-day disabled list Monday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Beachy will rejoin Triple-A Oklahoma City after going on the disabled list in the later portion of August. He pitches in the rotation for that club, but that seems unlikely to continue if he were to find a spot on the Dodgers.
