Dodgers pitcher Brandon Beachy, rushed to the majors, returns to the minors

first_imgWho needs a DH?When Chin-Hui Tsao batted in the fifth inning, it was his first plate appearance at any level in 12 years.Naturally, he hit the first pitch he saw from Braves pitcher Alex Wood to the warning track in right-center field. It bounced over the fence for a ground-rule double.Could Tsao even remember the last time he batted?“It was a long time ago,” he said. “Probably 2003.”Sure enough, Tsao’s last plate appearance was Sept. 21, 2003 for the Colorado Rockies. His last hit was Aug. 23 of that year, a single, and his last double came five days before that.In the meantime, he’s pitched in every minor-league level from Single-A to Triple-A, and spent a year in Taiwan. “They don’t hit,” Tsao said. “They use a designated hitter.”His well-documented comeback after five years away from the game had thus far focused on pitching. He said his only batting practice prior to Tuesday came during spring training this year with the Dodgers.How did he look?“Just so-so,” Tsao said.AlsoCarlos Frias threw a bullpen session Monday and touched 96 mph on the radar gun. “If he’s good, then we’ll be talking about a live BP or getting out to pitch this week,” Mattingly said. Frias is on the 15-day disabled list with a stiff lower back. He is not in the running to pitch for the Dodgers this weekend, Mattingly said. … Center fielder Joc Pederson won the Dodgers’ Heart and Hustle Award, given by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association to one player on each team who “demonstrates a passion for the game of baseball and best embodies the values, spirit and tradition of the game.” The award is voted on by former players.. … The TBS broadcast of Sunday’s game between the Mets and Dodgers will not be blacked out in SportsNet LA markets. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error ATLANTA >> If you’re a struggling pitcher with a minor-league option in your contract, long postgame meetings with the manager rarely bode well. Such was the case for Brandon Beachy, who was ticketed for Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room for outfielder Carl Crawford.Crawford was officially activated from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. His pinch-running appearance in the Dodgers’ 4-3 loss to the Braves, followed by an inning in left field, was his first major league game action since April. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Crawford will start the series finale in left field and give right fielder Yasiel Puig a day off.For Beachy, the move to Triple-A offers him a chance to reset. He’d given the Dodgers only four innings in each of his two starts since coming off the disabled list, and that wasn’t enough. center_img After Monday’s 7-5 loss, Beachy blamed his own inconsistent execution for allowing four runs in four innings. “There are a lot of hurdles that I think he’s crossed in the last four, five six months with us,” Mattingly said of Beachy. “He just needs more time to compete, to be able to make pitches, get the ball where he wants, execute, be able to sequence, hold runners — do everything you need to do over the course of the game. I think that’s just a matter of time.”Beachy missed the entire 2014 season, and the first three months of 2015, while recovering from his second Tommy John surgery in as many years. He allowed seven runs in eight innings over his two starts, walking six batters (two were intentional) while striking out five.“I don’t think this is really what we wanted to do from the beginning,” Mattingly said of Beachy’s two starts. “We got caught where we needed a starter. At that point, he was the best guy for that. We still felt like he needed a couple more starts before we even started thinking about using him.”In a corresponding 40-man roster move, the Dodgers designated pitcher Preston Guilmet for assignment. Guilmet had made three relief appearances for Oklahoma City since the Dodgers claimed him off waivers from Tampa Bay on July 10.last_img read more
