Dodgers activate Josh Beckett for Wednesday start

From the Dodgers’ official Twitter account …

Beckett was placed on the 15-day disabled list at the end of spring training with a thumb injury and then tweaked his right ankle during an April 4 rehab start at High-A Rancho Cucamonga. But he’s healthy now and is expected to serve as the Dodgers’ fifth starter going forward. Beckett hasn’t pitched in a major league game since last May. That will change when he takes the mound Wednesday night against the Tigers.
