Dodgers Injury Update: Chad Billingsley rehab results

By on 6/09/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Los Angeles Dodgers have stayed above the .500 mark despite having seven players on the disabled list, four of them on the 60-day disabled list. They entered Sunday night's game tenth in the Major Leagues in runs scored and seventh in ERA. The starting rotation looks to get a boost with the return of Chad Billingsley, who made a rehab start on Sunday for Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.

Michelle Gardner, who covers the Dodgers for the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin and the San Bernardino Sun, tweeted the following, confirming Billingsley's rehab start.
Billingsley started for the Quakes and pitched 1 2/3 innings, allowing a run on two hits, walked two, hit a batter and struck out two. He continues to battle back from Tommy John surgery he had April 2013. 

Billingsley, in his ninth Major League season, appeared in only two games last season and was 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA.  His best season was in 2008, when he had a record of 16-10 with a 3.14 ERA and 201 strikeouts. In 219 career games, he is 81-61 with a 3.65 ERA.  He's allowed 1,109 hits in 1,175 1/3 innings and struck out 1,037.
