Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher, Chad Billingsley, was abruptly sent to the 15 day DL last Saturday, August 25th due to inflammation in his pitching elbow.
The big news surrounding Billingsley came out in a report last night from the Los Angeles Times concerning Dodgers CEO Stan Kasten and his unease over Billingsley’s return this season. However, the report did indicate that Kasten’s assumption is not based on any medical evidence.
Billingsley went 3.1 innings giving up five hits and three earned runs in his last start against the Miami Marlins on Friday, August 24th. The right-hander had to check out of the game early because of injury.
Billingsley has been strong all August long for his fantasy owners with a 2.27 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP in 31.2 innings of work.
