Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett will visit Monday with Dr. Greg Pearl, a nerve specialist based in Dallas, Texas. Beckett has been dealing with tingling and numbness in his right hand, along with a strained groin that landed him on the disabled list May 14.
Beckett had an MRI performed Wednesday, but further tests are needed to determine the source of the injury.
Pearl consulted with St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenterlast year when Carpenter was dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome in his right arm. Carpenter ultimately had surgery on the arm and is trying to come back this year. It has not been determined that Beckett has the same condition.
The Dodgers will hold their first annual Sports Networking Fair on Monday, June 3, before that night’s 7:10 p.m. game against the San Diego Padres on the Loge Terrace.
Attendees can learn about internships, full-time and part-time positions with some of Southern California’s elite sports organizations, including the Galaxy, Padres and Angels, among others in attendance.
The event will be held from 5:10 p.m.-7:10 p.m. Tickets for the event, which include a preferred Loge Box ticket to the Dodger game, are available for $18 at www.dodgers.com/network.
