Chad Billingsley to have MRI following bullpen session


Chad Billingsley is set to have an MRI on his right elbow following a bullpen session on Tuesday.

Billingsley was unable to complete the session and now the Los Angeles Dodgers have sent him to have a dye-MRI. Just over a week ago Billingsley reported some discomfort in his elbow following a rehab start. The Dodgers said there was no structural damage at that time.

There had been hope that he would be ready to contribute sometime in May. With the recent setback that timetable is up in the air.

Billingsley made just two starts last season. In eight big league seasons he owns a 81-61 record, 3.65 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.
