Josh Beckett to Undergo Season-Ending Surgery

According to USA Today, Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett will undergo season ending surgery. The team made the announcement on Saturday. Soon after speaking with team doctors, the Dodgers decided that it would be best for Beckett to undergo a surgery that will relieve pressure on the nerve in his neck that has been giving him discomfort.

Dr. Greg Pearl will perform the surgery in Dallas this July on Beckett.

According to ESPN.com, Beckett will be sidelined from 3-5 months, but is expected to be back in time for spring training. Before the announcement was made, coach Don Mattingly told the media that Beckett’s most recent bullpen session was cut short due to a setback he encountered while throwing.

“Josh kind of went backwards a little bit I know he had some tingling again yesterday,” said Mattingly.

Just last year, the Boston Red Sox were able to trade Josh Beckett and his large salary of $15,750.00 per yer. Since being traded, Beckett has come up well short of earning his big salary.

In eight starts this year, Beckett is 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA. Beckett has earned an astounding $1,968,750 per start and now finds himself out for the season.
