Date:

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.
Aug 3 - 2:22 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.
Aug 3 - 1:31 PM

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.
Jul 30 - 8:26 PM

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.
Jul 21 - 2:53 PM

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.
Jul 20 - 10:46 PM

Brandon Beachy yielded three runs in four innings Saturday in his first major league start since 2013.

Beachy, returning from his second Tommy John surgery, was throwing 88-91 mph tonight, which isn't far off from where he was back in his best days with the Braves. It should be enough to get him a rotation spot after the break, assuming that the Dodgers don't trade for another starter right away. He's not to be picked up in mixed leagues right now, but he's worth watching.
Jul 12 - 2:08 AM

Dodgers activated RHP Brandon Beachy (elbow) from 60-day disabled list.

Beachy will make his first start in 23 months Saturday against the Brewers. He went 1-1 with a 2.41 in five rehab starts between Rancho Cucamonga and Oklahoma City. The right-hander underwent his second Tommy John surgery in March of 2014. He owns a 3.23 ERA in 46 big league starts.
Jul 11 - 6:08 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly confirmed Friday that Brandon Beachy will start on Saturday against the Brewers.

It has been a long road back for Beachy as he is recovering from a second Tommy John surgery. He has posted a 2.41 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 12/10 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings on his minor league rehab assignment. He's worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Jul 10 - 7:23 PM

According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Brandon Beachy (elbow) is traveling to Los Angeles and is likely to start on Saturday against the Brewers.

Well, this is interesting. Earlier in the week, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said, "I don't think we're ready to throw him into the fire [of a start on Saturday]." Apparently Mattingly might be playing coy here. Beachy's working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery and held a 2.41 ERA over five rehab starts. He could make one more rehab start, and if that's the case, options for Saturday's game against the Brewers include reliever Juan Nicasio or a call-up of Zach Lee. Whether he starts on Saturday or not, Beachy should be a possibility to join the rotation after the All-Star Break.
Jul 10 - 2:23 PM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) will not start for the Dodgers on Saturday against the Brewers.

Manager Don Mattingly said earlier this week that Beachy was one of the candidates, but the club has decided to have the righty make one final rehab start on Sunday. He'll be an option to join the rotation just after the All-Star break. "We’re happy with where Brandon’s at," Mattingly said. "He’s feeling good and we’re feeling good about where he’s at. But I don’t think we’re ready to just throw him into the fire. It could happen, I guess. But we haven’t talked about that much. Honestly, it’s about getting him ready to go and making sure he’s good for the long haul." The Dodgers will either go with a bullpen start led by Juan Nicasio or possibly promote Zach Lee to take the ball on Saturday.
Jul 10 - 9:56 AM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Brandon Beachy (elbow) is a candidate to start on Saturday versus the Brewers.

Making his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, Beachy holds a 2.41 ERA over five rehab starts and went six innings and threw 92 pitches in his last outing on Monday for Triple-A Oklahoma City. Mattingly said the righty touched 93 mph on the radar gun in the start, so it appears he's ready. The Dodgers have been seeking back-of-the-rotation help all season, so it would be a huge lift if Beachy can be even close to his pre-op form.
Jul 7 - 7:22 PM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) fared well in hi first minor league rehab start with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday, striking out three over two scoreless innings.

Beachy walked one and allowed one hit on the day, throwing 26 of his 45 pitches for strikes. He'll continue to build up his stamina in the minor leagues as he works his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, with an eye on rejoining the Dodgers in mid-July.
Jun 21 - 8:07 PM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga next week.

It's likely that start will come on Tuesday. Beachy is scheduled to work two innings in that first contest. He'll need at least a handful of starts on his rehab assignment before he'd be an option for the Dodgers rotation.
Jun 12 - 8:56 PM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment within the next week or so.

Beachy threw two innings to minor league hitters on Monday and will throw another bullpen session in the next couple days. He should be cleared for a rehab assignment after that. Making his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, Beachy can spend up to 30 days on his rehab assignment and should use up most, if not all of that allotment.
