Beckett, on the disabled list with a left groin strain, had his throwing program shut down two weeks ago because the numbness in his fingers continued during a bullpen session. Beckett is 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts this season.
Beckett visited Gregory Pearl in Dallas, the same surgeon who operated on Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter's right shoulder last season. Beckett is expected to return to Dodger Stadium on Wednesday.
