By the sounds of things, the Dodgers' rotation depth will continue being tested for the rest of the 2014 season. That's because right-hander Josh Beckett, who's been sidelined since Aug. 3 with a torn labrum in his left hip, isn't likely to pitch again this year.

Prior to the injury, the 34-year-old Beckett had positioned himself as a Comeback Player of the Year candidate.

Beckett's eligible for free agency this coming offseason.
