Chad Billingsley is still recovering from Tommy John surgery he underwent last season after making just two starts. Heading into the 2014 season, there was some thought Billingsley could work his way into the starting rotation with uncertainty surrounding Josh Beckett and Paul Maholm.

Billingsley was on track to potentially return to the Dodgers in May, but has since suffered multiple setbacks, though relatively minor, and now must once again progress through a throwing program. The right-hander pitched in a simulated game Thursday and reported no pain in his elbow.

While the Dodgers have received better than expected outings from the backend of their starting rotation, Billingsley stated he intends to be inserted into the starting lineup once he returns.
