The Los Angeles Dodgers activated ace starting pitcher Zack Greinke on May 15 but lost another starter when they placed right-hander Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list. MLB.com’s Austin Laymance reports that Greinke left his team’s May 13 game due to a strained groin that he suffered while covering first base on a ground ball. Laymance tweeted the news early in the evening on May 15: Zack Greinke activated, but #Dodgers place Josh Beckett on 15-day disabled list with left groin strain. — Austin Laymance (@JALaymance) May 15, 2013 Becket has yet to win in 2013, going 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in 8 starts. He has already allowed 8 home runs in 43.1 innings pitched. He becomes the ninth Dodger pitcher already to land on the disabled list in 2013. NBC Sports.com’s Drew Silva reports that Beckett will likely miss three weeks. The Dodgers begin play on May 15 in last place at 16-22 in the National League West, but that is not the fault of the pitching staff. Their starting rotation has a 3.66 ERA, good for sixth best in the National League. If Greinke can pitch like he always has and like his $147 million contract demands that he does, then the Dodgers could soon climb out of the cellar. However, they will need more run support from the offense, which averages 3.44 runs per game. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
