Josh Beckett SP LAD 15 Days

Beckett (hip) appears to be a long shot to pitch again this year, though a return in September has not been officially ruled out, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Beckett will either return as a starter or not at all, according to manager Don Mattingly. At this point, getting anything meaningful out of Beckett in 2014 appears unlikely.

Beckett has a groin strain as well as the hip issue that landed him on the 15-day DL Friday, but manager Don Mattingly "anticipates" Beckett will pitch again this season, the Orange County Register's Bill Plunkett reports.

When reports first surfaced that Beckett was headed to the DL, a report from MLB.com's Ken Grunick stated that Beckett's teammates thought he was done for the season and that Beckett was considering retirement, as the hip injury will not heal without surgery. However, as long as Mattingly is not confirming those concerns, we have to entertain the notion that Beckett could indeed pitch again in 2014. Mattingly said Beckett will need 10 to 14 days rest before the team reevaluates him.

Beckett (hip) was officially placed on the 15-day DL Friday, the L.A. Times' Dylan Hernandez reports.

This was anticipated after he underwent an MRI on his injured hip Thursday, and it's quite possible that he's done for the season. Roberto Hernandez will replace Beckett in the rotation, and owners in single-season leagues without a DL spot to stash Beckett may need to think about cutting ties at this point.

Beckett underwent an MRI on his hip and will likely be placed on the DL, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. There's a chance he may miss the remainder of the season.

Beckett was previously considered iffy for his scheduled start Friday, but it's now a sure thing that he'll be replaced by Roberto Hernandez, who was acquired by the Dodgers on Thursday. Beckett has been a bit shaky of late, so it's not overly surprising to see that an injury may have played a role. Hernandez could be in line for regular starts moving forward, should Beckett be forced to miss extended time.

Beckett is scheduled to start Friday against Milwaukee, but he could see that pushed back given Thursday's acquisition of Roberto Hernandez, Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports.

Beckett could probably use the rest given his 6.55 ERA in his last five starts.

Beckett will make his next start Friday against the Brewers confirmed manager Don Mattingly, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Beckett has a 6.55 ERA in his last five starts and is still likely being bothered by a sore hip. It's possible the club could put him on the DL should things not go well on Friday, but that's just speculation at this point.

Josh Beckett was bombed for four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday versus the Braves.

It was a nightmare from the outset, as Beckett also walked four. Fortunately, his offense and bullpen bailed him out in the 8-4 victory. Beckett was thrilled to see the Braves after not facing them for more than five years -- he entered the night 6-0 with a 0.38 ERA in his last seven outings against the club. Beckett was 0-4 with a 3.30 ERA in his last five home starts. The veteran gets the Cubs in Los Angeles next time around.

The Pirates had Beckett's number, bashing five extra-base hits against the right-hander before chasing him with two outs in the fourth. Gregory Polanco, Neil Walker, and Ike Davis each homered against him. Overall, Beckett allowed six hits, walked none, and struck out four. The veteran has otherwise had a great season, now carrying a 2.52 ERA with a 2.52 ERA and a 99/32 K/BB ratio. He'll match up against the Braves at home next Wednesday.

Dodgers activated RHP Josh Beckett from the 15-day disabled list.

Beckett will return to the Dodgers' starting rotation on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh after sitting out for over two weeks with a hip injury. He still has a labrum tear and some cysts, but the veteran right-hander is going to try to pitch through the discomfort. Beckett boasts a 2.26 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 95/32 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings this season.
