LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dodgers right-hander Josh Beckett is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery in about 1 1/2 weeks to relieve pressure on a nerve in his neck.
The announcement was made by the club on Saturday following a consultation Beckett had with team physician Neal ElAttrache and Dr. Greg Pearl of Dallas, who will perform the surgery there.
``I know he had some tingling again yesterday after throwing,'' manager Don Mattingly said. ``He didn't throw very long. I know there was a little bit of a setback there.''
Beckett, 33, is 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts and hasn't pitched since May 13. The three-time All-Star joined the Dodgers last August in a blockbuster nine-player trade along with first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, left fielder Carl Crawford and utilityman Nick Punto.
