LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers right-hander Josh Beckett is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery in about 1 1/2 weeks to relieve pressure on a nerve in his neck.

The announcement was made by the club on Saturday following a consultation Beckett had with team physician Neal ElAttrache and Dr. Greg Pearl of Dallas, who will perform the surgery there.

"I know he had some tingling again yesterday after throwing," manager Don Mattingly said. "He didn't throw very long. I know there was a little bit of a setback there."

Beckett, 33, is 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts and hasn't pitched since May 13. The three-time All-Star joined the Dodgers last August in a blockbuster nine-player trade along with first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, left fielder Carl Crawford and utilityman Nick Punto.
