I’ve had that same thought when he was holding the ball between pitches but, eventually, he did pitch again. This, however, is different. And something of actual real concern for the Dodgers’ starter. From The L.A. Times:
“I’m concerned,” said Beckett, 33. “I’ve never dealt with anything like this for this amount of time. We’ll just have to see what happens there.”
This referring to the numbness he’s felt in his fingers. Beckett had an MRI this week and they’ll review the results Monday. Here’s hoping for good news.
