|Josh Beckett lands on DL|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) The Dodgers placed starter Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday. He left his previous outing due to a left groin strain.
Beckett is 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts.

(5/14/13) An 0-5 record and 5.19 ERA probably have Fantasy owners at wit’s end with Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett. Now they’ll have to factor injury into the equation.
Beckett could be a candidate for the disabled list after injuring his groin covering first base during Monday’s game. Our Nando Di Fino and Al Melchior discussed their extremely different approaches to handling Beckett’s struggles on Tuesday’s episode of Fantasy Baseball Today. He left Monday’s game early with a groin injury.

(5/14/13) Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett might be a candidate for the disabled list after departing Monday's outing against Atlanta with a groin issue, MLB.com reports. Manager Don Mattingly said the right-hander suffered a strained right groin while covering first base in the third inning, leading to his removal and shortest start since July 31, 2012 (2 2/3 innings).
"I threw about 10 pitches after that," he said. "My groin hadn't been bothering me. I don't think I've ever had groin problems."
Mattingly also hinted that Beckett has been dealing with other "things," but the veteran brushed off those concerns. Still, Beckett remained winless on the season (0-5) after permitting at least two runs and two walks for the fifth consecutive start -- all while failing to exceed six innings.
"I've been healthy enough to pitch and that's what I've been telling them," he said. "If you tell them you're healthy enough to pitch, you're healthy enough to go out there and give your team a chance to win. I don't feel like I'm doing a good job of that. I've just got to make better pitches right now. I really don't feel like the mental side of that part is where I'm struggling. It really just boils down to making pitches."
|Josh Beckett not getting it done|

(5/14/13) Dodgers starter Josh Beckett couldn't even go deep enough to qualify for a win Monday at home against the Nationals. And with Jordan Zimmermann of the Nats cruising, Beckett didn't stand a chance.
Beckett took the loss to fall to 0-5, allowing four runs -- two earned -- on three hits and two walks over just three innings. He threw 68 pitches to record just nine outs and his ERA is 5.19.
Beckett has yet to win this season and he's looked like a shell of his former self. He's failed to last longer than six innings in all but one of his starts but Monday was a new low.
Beckett, who struck out five, makes his next scheduled start Sunday at Atlanta.
|From a declining fastball to an ill-advised golf outing to injuries to his thumb, back, hamstring and shoulder, the case for Josh Beckett's eviction from Boston built throughout the 2012 season, ultimately culminating in a blockbuster deal that sent him along with Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to the Dodgers. Back in the lighter-hitting league and a pitcher-friendly park, Beckett managed to pitch better with the Dodgers, posting a 2.93 ERA in seven starts. But his velocity wasn't any better, leading to a disappointing strikeout total more starts than not. Beckett doesn't need to be able to blow the ball by hitters to have success. His time with the Dodgers -- not to mention an eight-game stretch earlier in the season in which he posted a 3.31 ERA -- proves that. But with more of a pitch-to-contact approach, the 32-year-old will be susceptible to the big inning, making him not such a safe bet for a low ERA. With his strikeout rate also down and his durability in question, clearly Beckett doesn't have the same stature he once did in Fantasy. He'll likely rebound to a degree with a full season in Los Angeles, but he's now the type of pitcher you draft to round out your staff rather than lead it. (Updated 12/4/12)|
