Dodgers Pitcher Josh Beckett Faces Season-Ending Nerve Surgery

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett will undergo season-ending surgery to relieve pressure on a nerve in his neck, the Major League Baseball team said.

Beckett, 33, was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome after complaining of numbness and tingling in his right pitching hand since spring training, the Dodgers said. He will have surgery the week of July 8 in Dallas.

Recovery from the procedure, which involves removing an upper rib that compresses nerve tissue near the neck and shoulder, may take three to five months, the Dodgers said.

Beckett tried throwing two days ago for the first time in a month.

“Josh kind of went backwards a little bit,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told reporters. “I know he had some tingling again yesterday after throwing. He didn’t throw very long. I know there was a little bit of a setback there.”

Beckett was 0-5 with a 5.19 earned run average in eight starts this year before he was put on the disabled list May 14.
