Chad Billingsley to return sooner than expected?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) With the Dodgers choosing to take Justin Sellers off the 40-man roster and not place starting pitcher Chad Billingsley on the 60-day disabled list gives a strong indication that the team feels the right-hander might return from Tommy John surgery sooner than mid-May.

"It seems that way," Billingsley said Sunday of reading between the lines, per MLB.com. "I'm not really too worried about that. My main focus is getting healthy and being smart during this rehab. Don't have any setbacks.

"The rehab has been going great so far. The arm is feeling good. It feels like I have a new arm, really. The elbow started bugging me back in 2008 and it was a gradual deterioration from there, so it's nice to wake up in the morning and not feel like it's stiff and sore. It's a different feeling than I've felt in a long time. It's nice to throw without pain."

Billingsley said he's thrown off a mound 14 times this spring -- three innings of about 15 pitches each time. He's been keeping his fastball at about 80-85 mph, but he will increase velocity this week and hopes to start throwing breaking pitches by the end of the week.

"I'm gradually building up," he said. "You can't predict a 12-month process. You'd like to be back by the 12th or 13th month, and right now it's going that way, but you never know."
