Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (hip) might be ready to start Tuesday, July 22, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Manager Don Mattingly said Friday, July 18, that he is optimistic the pitcher will be ready.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should play it safe and keep Beckett reserved, as nothing is etched in stone as of yet, and if he is pushed back it could be a giant zero in your lineup. Let him prove he is fully healthy in one start before plugging him back into the active lineup.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (hip) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 8, with a left hip impingement. The disabled list stint will be retroactive to Monday, July 7. In a corresponding move, RP Pedro Baez has been recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Fantasy Tip: Beckett has pitched exceptionally well thus far in 2014. With the All-Star break nearing, he could only miss a single start. However, Beckett has a history of healing slowly, and this injury could eventually require surgery if he comes back too soon. If someone gets the opportunity to make a spot start in Beckett's absence, they would have fleeting NL-only value and be a potential streamer candidate.
