After a season of multiple setbacks, Chad Billingsley will not pitch another inning for the Los Angeles Dodgers this season. An MRI revealed a healthy UCL in his right elbow, but a torn flexor tendon as well. Billingsley has opted for surgery, which he’ll undergo next week.

This will be Billingsley’s second straight lost season after he missed the 2013 campaign due to Tommy John surgery. The Dodgers hold a team option for $14 million on Billingsley’s contract for next season.

With all the time the right-hander has missed, it is more than likely that his tenure as a member of the Dodgers is over. The Dodgers will have to pay a $3 million dollar buyout if they chooses not to exercise the team option.

Since being drafted by Los Angeles in 2003, Billingsley has posted an 81-61 record with a 3.65 ERA.
