Los Angeles Dodgers CEO Stan Kasten told the Los Angeles Times that he's concerned that pitcher Chad Billingsley won't return this season.
Kasten told the paper that his worry isn't "based on medical evidence," but added that Billingsley's injury isn't related to the team's search for a starting pitcher.
"There has never been a team in the history of baseball that hasn't been looking for pitching," Kasten told the Times.
Billingsley landed on the disabled list after an MRI Saturday showed inflammation in his right elbow. Once the swelling subsides, he will undergo another MRI to determine the extent of his injury.
Billingsley is 10-9 with a 3.55 ERA this season. He has been particularly good over his last seven starts, going 6-0 with a 1.80 ERA.
