Dodgers pitcher Chad Billingsley underwent Tomy John surgery on Wednesday evening. The surgery to reconstruct the right handers elbow went as planned but will keep him out of action for the rest of the 2013 season.
Injured in his start on April 16, it was announce just days ago that Billingsly would require surgery.
It is uncertain if Billingsley will be ready for the start of next season. He finishes the 2013 campaign with a 1-0 record and a 3.00 ERA in two starts.
The Dodgers were looking to rid themselves of starting pitchers at the end of spring training and eventually traded Aaron Harang to the Rockies. Since then the team has lost Zack Greinke, Chris Capuano and Billingsley to injuries.
Ted Lilly who began the season on the disabled list made his first start of the year on Wednesday night. Lilly went five innings allowing a run. The Mets would go on to win the game with a grand slam in the bottom of the tenth.

The Los Angeles Dodgers rotation received a big blow today as it was announced that starting pitcher Chad Billingsley will undergo Tommy John Surgery ending his season.
Near the end of last season there was a decision to be made whether Billinsgley would have Tommy John Surgery. The other option was getting prp (platelet-rich plasma) injections that could possibly prevent the need...
It’s official, Chad Billingsley will undergo Tommy John surgery tomorrow. Dr. Neal ElAttrache will be performing the surgery at Kerlan-Jobe in Los Angeles. Honestly, I’m pissed. How does this situation even happen? The coaches and even Billingsley himself took no responsibility. I’m sure you remember when Billingsley was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in...

Dodgers got some bad news on Tuesday when the club revealed that Chad Billinglsey will undergo Tommy John surgery on Wednesday and is expected to miss 12 months.
After an up-and-down 2012, Billingsley finally started to show signs of the player the Dodgers had signed to a 3-year, 35-million deal the year prior. From July 23 to Aug. 19 of last season Billingsley went on...
I came to watch the Titanic sink. And then I realized, oops, it's barely out of port.
The Dodgers indeed could wind up an epic fail. On Tuesday alone, they lost right-hander Chad Billingsley to Tommy John surgery and saw ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw do the unthinkable -- issue a two-out, bases-empty walk to a reliever making his first major league plate appearance, leading...
The “This Is SportsCenter” advertisements seem to be the only thing that ESPN churns out year after year and they are still fantastic. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw didn’t have to work too hard to create this one, but it is still one of the funnier and more creative ads that I have seen them make recently.
Juan Uribe's perfect day at the plate, with three walks and capped off by the game-winning RBI, earn the Dodgers a series victory against the Mets.

Lots of bacon getting saved tonight. Holy cow

NEW YORK (AP) -- Mark Ellis lined two home runs and hit a hard grounder that sent Mets starter Jonathon Niese limping off for X-rays, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over New York 7-2 Tuesday night.
Ellis got four hits and drove in four runs. He hit his 100th career homer in the fifth inning, then connected for a tiebreaking, three-run shot with two outs in the seventh.
Only recently has the Los Angeles Dodgers' offense started coming around, though not soon enough to provide much support for Josh Beckett in any of his outings.
Los Angeles seeks a fourth victory in its last five tries Friday night in the opener of a three-game set against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers, who have won nine of the last 11 meetings.

I hate games like this.
When Jon Niese was hit in the ankle in the third inning by Mark Ellis and had to leave the game on Tuesday, with Clayton Kershaw on the other side, I was thinking, "well, this game is shot to hell, so I'll save my angst for what the Rangers do against the Panthers, or better yet I'll save my angst for a double dose of explosion on Thursday...
