Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Chad Billingsley has had a bit of a troublesome comeback, to say the least. After having Tommy John Surgery last season, the eight-year veteran has been trying to recover and earn a spot on the roster.
Doctors were optimistic that Billingsley might have been able to return earlier than expected, but Billingsley has experienced two major setbacks. Billingsley was stopped because he had felt some discomfort and went on to be examined.
After Billingsley underwent an MRI, it was revealed he has a torn flexor tendon. Billingsley and Dr. ElAttrache will meet up and discuss possible options and more information will be released in the next few days.
Billingsley last pitched for the Dodgers on April 15, 2013, but did say that if he is able to overcome his elbow problems, he plans on being a starting pitcher this season.
