Date:'s Ken Gurnick reports that Brandon Beachy (elbow) left the Dodgers' spring training complex and went home.

We would presume that this means he had another setback with his elbow, but the Dodgers haven't clarified the situation. Beachy hasn't appeared in a game this season and hasn't made more than 13 appearances anywhere since 2012 due to elbow issues.

Brandon Beachy (elbow) resumed throwing off a mound on Saturday.

It's the first time he has been back on the hill since being sidelined by a sore elbow earlier in the month. Given the current state of the Dodgers rotation, as soon as he's deemed ready to return there could be a rotation spot waiting for him.

Brandon Beachy (elbow) will resume a throwing program on Wednesday.

Beachy was shut down for a couple days with mild tendinitis in his right elbow, but it appears to have been a minor setback. With Mike Bolsinger (oblique) slated to begin the season on the disabled list, Beachy will compete to fill in as the Dodgers' fifth starter.

Brandon Beachy will be shut down for a few days with mild tendinitis in his right elbow.

Beachy is confident that it's not a serious setback, but the Dodgers are understandably being cautious given that he's had a pair of Tommy John surgeries on the elbow. The right-hander is competing for a job in the Dodgers' rotation and was torched for six runs over two innings in his last outing.

Brandon Beachy really struggled in Friday’s start against the Diamondbacks, allowing four runs over two-plus innings.

Beachy threw just 10 pitches in a scoreless first inning, but it was all downhill from there. He gave up three runs in the second inning and left the game after loading the bases with nobody out in the third. Along the way, he allowed five hits and walked four. This certainly won’t help his case for the fifth starter job against Zach Lee and Mike Bolsinger.

Dodgers sent RHP Brandon Beachy outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers re-signed Beachy to a one-year, $1.5 million contract earlier this month, but he's now off the 40-man roster. He's still expected to report to big league camp this spring. His 2016 salary is not guaranteed, so the Dodgers could cut him during spring training and only owe him termination pay. He'll function as rotation depth.

Dodgers re-signed RHP Brandon Beachy to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan passed along the contract details while MLB Network's Jon Heyman hears that the deal includes performance-based incentives. Beachy didn't do much after the Dodgers took a flier on him last offseason, but they are giving it another shot on the chance that he regains some of his old form. It's purely a lottery ticket move as Los Angeles looks to build some rotation depth. Eric Stephen of True Blue LA notes that his $1.5 million base salary is not guaranteed, so the Dodgers could cut him in spring training and only be responsible for termination pay.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Dodgers and right-hander Brandon Beachy are finalizing a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

It's a major league deal, which is a bit of a surprise at this point. Beachy made his way back from Tommy John surgery last season, but struggled in two appearances with the Dodgers and spent most of the year in the minors. He'll provide some rotation depth at the very least, but expectations should be kept in check.

Dodgers sent RHP Brandon Beachy outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Beachy accepted the assignment rather than test the free agent waters. The 28-year-old right-hander is still working back from a second Tommy John surgery. He allowed seven runs in eight innings (two starts) with LA.

Brandon Beachy will accept an assignment to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Beachy was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on July 30. He had the option of electing free agency, but the 28-year-old right-hander has decided to remain with the organization. Beachy is still building arm strength following his second Tommy John surgery.
Mon, Aug 3, 2015 02:22:00 PM

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, right-hander Brandon Beachy has cleared waivers.

Beachy got designated for assignment by the Dodgers on July 30 in the aftermath of the club's 13-player trade with the Braves and Marlins. Beachy allowed seven earned runs in eight innings (two starts) for Los Angeles. He hasn't shown much coming off his second career Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but there should be some team out there willing to take a chance.

Dodgers designated RHP Brandon Beachy for assignment.

The Dodgers were forced to cut a few very talented players as a result of Thursday's massive 13-player three-team trade. Beachy should attract interest from several clubs, and the Dodgers could flip him in another trade shortly.

Dodgers optioned RHP Brandon Beachy to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The move clears a spot for Carl Crawford's return from the disabled list. Beachy lasted just four innings in each of his first two starts since returning from Tommy John surgery. The move likely clears the way for Zach Lee to pitch against the Mets this weekend.

Brandon Beachy left with a no-decision after giving up four runs in four innings in Monday as the Braves topped the Dodgers.

Beachy was behind almost immediately after Nick Markakis hit a two-run home run in the first inning. Jace Peterson added two more on a double in the fourth. The right-hander gave up five hits and three walks while striking out three on the evening. His first two starts this season -- the first two he's made since 2013 -- haven't been good, but struggles were to be expected of the two-time Tommy John surgery recipient. Beachy faces the Mets in New York in his next outing.
