Dodgers | Josh Beckett to 15-day DL

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 12:18:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (hip) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 8, with a left hip impingement. The disabled list stint will be retroactive to Monday, July 7. In a corresponding move, RP Pedro Baez has been recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Fantasy Tip: Beckett has pitched exceptionally well thus far in 2014. With the All-Star break nearing, he could only miss a single start. However, Beckett has a history of healing slowly, and this injury could eventually require surgery if he comes back too soon. If someone gets the opportunity to make a spot start in Beckett's absence, they would have fleeting NL-only value and be a potential streamer candidate.
