Dodgers GM Ned Colletti announced to the media on Saturday that newly-acquired starter Josh Beckett is going to make his debut on Monday night against the Rockies, filling the rotation spot left vacant by a recent injury to right-hander Chad Billingsley, who is going to be sidelined for “a while.”
This according to Dylan Hernandez, Dodgers beat writer for the Los Angeles Times.
Beckett was acquired in the nine-player blockbuster trade with the Red Sox that was made official this afternoon. He had an ugly 5.23 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 94/38 K/BB ratio in 127 1/3 innings this season with Boston.
Billingsley came down with inflammation in his right elbow Friday night. He is headed to the disabled list.
