Josh Beckett placed on the 15-day disabled list

The Dodgers placed Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list today with a left hip impingement. He pitched on July 6, and the All-Star break is coming up,  so he’ll be eligible to come off not too terribly long after the All-Star break is over, meaning that he may only miss one or two starts, tops.

Beckett is having a fantastic year so far, going 6-2 with a 2.26 ERA and a 95/32 K/BB ratio in 103.2 inning across 17 starts. Assuming the hip thing isn’t too major, a couple of times through the rotation off may be good for him for the Dodgers’ stretch run.

      Just last week, he was healthy enough to be eating a bucket of chicken! I know because I brought it with his beer.

    U cant say that kind of crap when youve seen hes been healthy all year and put up all star numbers. Give the man his credit

      Ok.

      He was really healthy this year until he had to go on the disabled list.

    Actually probably a good thing,he has pitched alot of innings already. Use this time & AS break & b fresh in 2nd half.

      Or he’ll use the free time to pack donuts in his face and then miss the rest of the season when his gut tears his oblique.
