Chad Billingsley (elbow) is scheduled to intensify his throwing program Friday.

Billingsley hasn't pitched since August 24 due to a partially torn ligament in his right elbow. He was given platelet-rich plasma injections last month and recently began some light throwing, but the real test will be how he responds to increased activity. Dodgers trainer Sue Falsone said a decision about Tommy John surgery likely won't be made until November. If he has the surgery, he will miss the entire 2013 season.
