Beckett exits rehab start with apparent injury


LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett left a rehab start for Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga Friday night in the fifth inning after apparently being injured while fielding a bunt.

Beckett allowed three first-inning runs on two homers, then held San Jose scoreless the next three innings before exiting after Jesus Galindo's fifth-inning leadoff bunt.

Beckett allowed three runs on five hits with five strikeouts and three walks in four-plus innings. He was under consideration to start for the Dodgers next week if the rehab start went without a setback.

He came to Spring Training having recovered from a surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, then sustained a bruised right hand and was placed on the disabled list when the Dodgers left for their season-opening series in Australia.
