Los Angeles Dodgers SPs Josh Beckett and Chris Capuano were on the field for the brawl that took place in the game with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, June 11, and because they are on the disabled list, they could face league discipline as a result. OF Matt Kemp was not on the field for the altercation.
Fantasy Tip: We'll know the extent of the disciplinary action tomorrow, when the league announces their decisions.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (groin) will likely miss the remainder of the season if he undergoes surgery. However, he thinks he will be able to pitch in 2014 even if he has season-ending surgery.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday, June 5, that he is uncertain if SP Josh Beckett (groin) will be able to return to pitch this season due to a nerve-related issue.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said SP Josh Beckett (groin) will not need to undergo surgery for a nerve-related issue. However, the team has no timetable on when he might return.
Fantasy Tip: This is obviously good news for Beckett and the Dodgers, but nerve issues can be tough to come back from. Each situation is unique to the individual, and since Beckett is known as a slow healer, we should expect him to be out for a while. Feel safe in dropping him in mixed formats in order to pursue better options that can help you out now.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (groin) will visit with a nerve specialist Monday, June 3.
Fantasy Tip: Beckett was dealing with tingling in his fingers after being shut down from his throwing program recently, so this could be a more serious condition. Check back next week to see how his exam goes, but be prepared to deal with a much longer absence. It's not crazy to dump him in mixed leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (groin) was able to throw on flat ground Tuesday, May 21, without discomfort in his strained groin muscle. He was unable to do that over the weekend. He is expected to throw from a mound before he's allowed to run.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed SP Josh Beckett (groin) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, May 15, and activated SP Zack Greinke (collarbone) from the DL in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Beckett has been a disappointment for the Blue this season, and he can safely be dropped in most mixed formats unless you plan on utilizing him in a DL spot.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are considering placing SP Josh Beckett (groin) on the 15-day disabled list after he suffered a slightly strained groin muscle during his start Monday, May 13. Beckett is currently 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA.
Fantasy Tip: Beckett has not pitched well this season and probably doesn't deserve a roster spot in deep mixed leagues as a result. With Zack Greinke (collarbone) coming back Wednesday, this might be a good time to rest Beckett up. Ted Lilly (rib cage, neck) is also nearing a return and could slot back into the rotation to fill Beckett's void.
