  • LOS ANGELES — 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.
    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.
