Chad Billingsley has yet to make a decision regarding surgery on his injured elbow, but says there's a very slim chance he pitches again this season.
Forget about pitching this year. This is a decision of whether to ever pitch again. In order to be effective and have a career, Billingsley is going to need to have surgery again, Rest and rehab just isn't going to cut it. If he has surgery, he's done for the season. If he doesn't, he'll end up doing more damage to it by trying to pitch after just some simple time off and be done forever. We're guessing he opts for surgery and another lengthy recovery period.ANALYST: Howard Bender
