Billingsley spent the last five weeks of the season on the disabled list with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament. He will continue his rehab in Arizona, hopes to begin throwing off a mound next week and by the end of the month should be throwing at an intensity to determine if the elbow will hold up without surgery. Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp said he will have surgery on his injured left shoulder Friday. After missing 51 games earlier in the season with a strained left hamstring, Kemp insisted on playing through the shoulder pain and finishing out the season in the lineup.
