|Josh Beckett struggles in debut from DL |

(4/10/14) Dodgers starting pitcher Josh Beckett made his season debut Wednesday against the Tigers, but only a late rally from the defense prevented him from taking a loss as the game went into extra innings.
Beckett, who opened the season on the disabled list with a thumb injury, showed little sign of the injury while pitching four innings. The length of his outing was more to do with his struggles, as he allowed five runs -- four earned - on five hits and a walk, though he also struck out five. Beckett threw 85 pitches, 55 of them for strikes while taking a no-decision.
Beckett was a bit rusty, which isn't much of a surprise after he started the season on the DL. He will try to get on track in his next start, set for Tuesday against the Giants.
|Dodgers activate Josh Beckett from disabled list |

(4/9/14) The Dodgers activated pitcher Josh Beckett from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, the team announced.
Beckett will make the start in the team's game against the Tigers Wednesday night. He's getting a later start on his season due to thumb and ankle injuries.
|Josh Beckett set to make Wednesday's start |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/8/14) Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett is set to make his season debut Wednesday against the Tigers, TrueBlueLA.com reports.
Plans could still change if Beckett encounters a setback before gametime Wednesday, but he looks like he's finally ready to return from ankle and thumb issues. Beckett made just eight starts with the Dodgers last season, going 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA and 41:13 K:BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings.
|Injuries are nothing new to veteran pitcher Josh Beckett, but last season marked the first time he underwent surgery in his 13-year MLB career. Beckett only lasted eight starts before undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, which was causing numbness in his pitching hand. Beckett is expected to be symptom-free for the start of the 2014 season, but obviously Fantasy owners need to approach with caution here. You could call Beckett's 2013 season a wash since he wasn't healthy. He did pitch well at the end of the 2012 season after his acquisition from Boston and was striking out 8.5 batters per nine innings last season before getting shut down. Still, Beckett has been very up and down the last few seasons, and of course, you have to worry about durability issues. He's never had more than 33 starts in a season and has surpassed 30 starts just three times in the last seven seasons. Consider Beckett more of a late-round Fantasy selection.
