Josh Beckett injury: Dodgers righty to have season-ending surgery

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ season just keeps getting worse, and on Saturday the team was dealt another blow. Starting pitcher Josh Beckett will miss the rest of the 2013 season as he will undergo surgery to relieve pressure on the nerves in his neck and shoulder area.

Josh BeckettBeckett hadn’t pitched since May 13 and was attempting to work his way back to the majors when he suffered a setback during a throwing session on Friday. The 33-year-old felt tingling in his fingers from a nerve issue that has been bothering him for months. Moving to undergo surgery is certainly the right step, especially since the Dodgers aren’t competing this season.

The veteran was in his 13th year this season but had been awful from the get-go. He posted a record of 0-5, with a 5.19 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 43.1 innings over eight starts. The Dodgers had won just one of his starts this season.

Since coming over from the Boston Red Sox last year, Beckett is just 2-8 and has never looked comfortable on the mound.

His 2013 season was virtually a wasted one, and it cost the Dodgers $15.75 million. He will likely be ready for spring training in 2014, which is good because he’s under contract for another $15.75 million next year before becoming a free agent after the season.

At this point it’s fair to say that Adrian Gonzalez is the only part of last summer’s blockbuster trade for the Red Sox has turned out well for the Dodgers. And even Gonzalez is vastly overpaid, since $21 million is far too much money for a 31-year-old hitting .296 with 10 home runs.

    They’ve won 7 of their last 10. They will win the west.

  2. One good stretch of play doesn’t make a season. They don’t have the pitching or bullpen to do it.

  3. 2 CY Young winners et al isn’t enough? with that lineup?

    A win tonight against Philly puts them 5 games back. They are back in it.

  4. Greinke isn’t pitching like a former Cy Young winner. The bullpen is horrendous. They also currently rank 28th in runs scored and 27th in slugging percentage league-wide, and are 12th in ERA, 15th in quality starts, 20th in batting average against.

    Billingsley and Beckett are out for the year, Capuano (4.72 ERA) and Fife aren’t great and Greinke (3.94 ERA) isn’t exactly shutting people down.

    Everyone in the NL West has struggled of late which has tightened things up, but if you really think the Dodgers are going to win it you’ve got far more faith in them than you should. I love Puig but he isn’t going to hit .420 all season.

    In addition to that, Kemp has been hurt on and off and has just two home runs and a WAR of 0.2, Ethier is hitting .256 with only five home runs, Crawford is still out and they’re having to rely on guys like Uribe, Schumaker, Mark and A.J. Ellis and Nick Punto to produce runs. Yeah, I’d say that’s a recipe for disaster. It’s an aging roster with a bloated payroll that isn’t producing.
