LOS ANGELES (AP) - Josh Beckett realizes he has a long road ahead to get back to the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
A day after the club announced that the three-time All-Star right-hander will have season-ending surgery to treat the thoracic outlet syndrome in his neck, the three-time All-Star talked about what lies ahead once the surgery is performed in about 1 1-2 weeks in Dallas.
He says: ``This surgery has a good track record, and I think it's going to put me in a better position than I was.''
Beckett was 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts. He is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
