JOSH BECKETT, 32, starting pitcher
Final 2012 stats: 7-14, 4.65 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 132 strikeouts and 52 walks in170 1/3 innings.
Contract status: Signed for the next two seasons at $17 million per year.
The good: He pitched a lot better as a Dodger (2-3, 2.95 ERA) than as a Red Sox (5-11, 5.23), though he had an identical WHIP (1.33). Once Chad Billingsley was lost to injury, he sort of assumed the mantle as the Dodgers’ No. 2 pitcher. Can be a sour personality but never seemed a clubhouse problem. Never truly had a terrible game as a Dodger.
