News: Beckett pitched five scoreless innings Tuesday. Impact: Beckett walked five so that's a concern heading into Sunday's matchup with the D-Backs.(STATS, 12:04pm)
Tue. Apr 15, 2014
News: Beckett allowed just two hits in five innings of shutout ball Tuesday against the Giants. He did walk five, however, while sitting down four in a no-decision. Impact: The walks were not a welcome sight for owners of the former 20-game winner, but the two hits surrendered were a nice treat. Beckett, who has yet to pick up a decision in two starts this year, will bring his 4.00 ERA and 1.44 WHIP back to the mound Sunday in a favorable matchup against the lowly 4-13 Diamondbacks.(RotoWire, )

News: Beckett's next start will come Tuesday in San Francisco. Impact: Beckett allowed four runs over four innings in his 2014 debut, so he'll obviously be looking for improvement the second time around.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Beckett lasted just four innings in his first start of the season. Impact: While Beckett threw 55 of his 85 pitchers for strikes, he allowed five hits, and four earned runs in the game. He did strike out five against only one walk and he was facing the Tigers. It was not a great start but it would be too early to drop Beckett if you drafted him.(RotoWire, )

News: Beckett (thumb) was reinstated from the disabled list and will start Wednesday's game against the Tigers, the Dodgers' official Twitter feed reports. Impact: This was expected, as manager Don Mattingly hinted at the move earlier this week. The 33-year-old righty was very poor in 2013, posting a 5.19 ERA in 43.1 innings, but the advanced metrics didn't rate him quite as poorly. Nonetheless, it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with Beckett, as there's significant downside here.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Don Mattingly said Beckett (thumb) "looks like our guy for [Wednesday]." Impact: The skipper did say that the team is not ready to officially announce Beckett as Wednesday's starter, but it appears the 33-year-old will toe the rubber against Detroit. Beckett tweaked his ankle during his rehab start for High-A Rancho Cucamonga last Friday, but was still able to go four-plus innings and that may be sufficient for his activation.(RotoWire, )

News: Two days after tweaking his ankle in a start with High-A Rancho Cucamonga, Beckett -- who had been dealing with a thumb injury -- threw a bullpen session Sunday, the Los Angeles Times reports. Impact: "It was a lot more encouraging today than it was yesterday," Beckett noted after Sunday's session, with the report suggesting that a Wednesday start remains a possibility for the veteran righty.(RotoWire, )

News: Beckett (thumb/ankle) is at risk of missing Wednesday's start against the Tigers, Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times reports. Impact: Beckett was scheduled to make his season debut Wednesday after opening the season on the DL due to a thumb injury, but he landed awkwardly on his ankle during a rehab start at High-A Rancho Cucamonga and now has a new ailment to worry about. If Beckett can't go, the Dodgers could decide to either use Hyun-Jin Ryu on one day of rest instead of his planned two days, or call up Stephen Fife or Matt Magill from Triple-A Albuquerque to make a spot start.(RotoWire, )

News: Beckett (thumb) is nursing a sore ankle, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports. Impact: While attempting to field a bunt during a rehab start for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday, Beckett hurt his ankle and was forced to leave the game. However, it appears he still has a chance to start on regular rest for the big club Wednesday, since he was able to go four-plus innings, before suffering the injury.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Beckett (thumb) left his rehab start with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga in the fifth inning after suffering an apparent leg injury,'s Ken Gurnick reports. Impact: Beckett allowed three runs on five hits with five strikeouts and three walks though his first four innings Friday night. Just when it seemed he was ready for a return to the Dodgers' rotation next week, the veteran hurler injured himself trying to field a bunt. Beckett's status is currently up in the air.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Beckett (thumb) could start on regular rest for the Dodgers on Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of reports. Impact: That schedule probably hinges on whether Beckett comes through Friday's rehab start without a setback. If Beckett were to slot in for a Wednesday start, Hyun-Jin Ryu would get an extra day of rest and take the ball Thursday.(RotoWire, )
