Chad Billingsley Injury: MRI Shows Right Elbow Inflammation

The injury that pulled Chad Billingsley from Friday night's game against the Marlins was diagnosed as right elbow inflammation after an MRI Friday night.

Billingsley left the game midway through the fourth inning. He exited after 3.1 innings, having allowed five hits and three earned runs already. The Dodgers' offense provided plenty of help however, scoring 11 runs as LA went on to beat Miami 11-4, keeping them three games back of the Giants in the NL West.

The right-hander has missed time already this season with elbow inflammation, spending a stint in July on the 15-day disabled list. Since returning from that time on the DL, Billingsley has been stellar for the Dodgers, going 6-0 with a 1.30 ERA in his last six starts.

In his seventh season with the Dodgers, Billingsley is 10-9 with a 3.55 ERA in 2012. The Dodgers and Marlins square off tonight at 6:10 in the second game of the series.
