07:38 AM ET 02.26 | Situation normal? After nearly a year away from the mound and an invasive surgery without much of a track record, it's probably the nicest thing anyone could say about Josh Beckett this spring. "If I didn't know he'd had anything done or he'd had any problems, it would have looked like a normal Josh Beckett," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "It looks free and easy. It's not like after every throw he's laboring. It just looked normal." ... Beckett takes the word "normal" as a compliment. When he tried throwing in the first weeks after surgery to remove a rib and relieve thoracic outlet syndrome last year, Beckett said his shoulder was "unbelievably sore" from the procedure. That eliminated any thoughts he had about returning to pitch down the stretch or in the playoffs.

He's in the last year of the 4yr/$68M deal that he signed while with the Red Sox.
