THE NUMBERS may have looked similar, but to Chad Billingsley, yesterday's 7-4 loss to the Mets felt like progress. Five days earlier, the 30-year-old righthander made his first start in nearly 2 calendar years, a layoff necessitated by a pair of elbow surgeries that ended his career with the Dodgers. In his first game back, he allowed six runs (five earned) in five innings against the Braves, including home runs by Freddie Freeman and Kelly Johnson. Yesterday, the big blast came from Curtis Granderson, who crushed a fastball off a billboard between the first and second seating decks in right-centerfield for a two-run home run that gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning.

ATLANTA - For three months last summer, Chad Billingsley wasn't much help in the bringing-in-the-groceries-from-the-car department. If he and his wife decided to go on vacation for a weekend, he was going to be hitting up the bellhop for help with the luggage. Handling the TV remote was about his limit. Billingsley underwent surgery on his right flexor tendon (elbow) just over 10 months ago. Two years ago, he had Tommy John surgery. Tonight, he'll take the mound at Turner Field and pitch in his first major league game in more than two years.

ATLANTA - Chad Billingsley, who turns 31 in July, was as excited as a 20-year-old rookie on the eve of his first start of the season. Billingsley was 25 months and two elbow surgeries removed from his most recent major league game. About an hour before he took the mound for the Phillies last night at Turner Field, Billingsley's heart began pounding pretty fast. He rode the adrenaline in getting the first big-league batter he faced since 2013 to ground out, and then used it again when he dialed up 93 mph on his seventh pitch of the night.

When the Dodgers acquired Ted Lilly from the Cubs on Saturday, they deepened their staff but didn't upgrade the top of their rotation. The lefthander, 34, has some playoff experience, the kind he'd prefer to forget. The addition of Lilly does little to ease the burden on Clayton Kershaw, above, as the No. 1. Kershaw is talented and appears to have a great future, but the lefthander is only 22. He does have postseason experience. Hiroki Kuroda has yet to develop the consistency the Dodgers need from him, but Chad Billingsley has been getting more effective as the season wears on.

The three-game series starts Tuesday at AT&T Park. The Giants won three out of four in San Diego to gain a share of first place in the NL West for the first time since May 6. The Giants have won nine of their last 12 and are going against a withering Dodgers team that has lost 11 of its last 15 while the Padres go against the white-hot Rockies in Colorado. The Dodgers will throw three quality starters - Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley and Ted Lilly - against their division rivals, and even when they're going bad, they can be motivated playing the Giants.

CESAR JIMENEZ will join the Phillies when the team holds its first workout of spring training a week from today. The lefthanded pitcher cleared waivers and will be in camp as a non-roster invitee. Jimenez was designated for assignment last month when the Phillies had to create a 40-man roster spot for free-agent righthander Chad Billingsley. Jimenez, 30, had a 1.69 ERA in 16 appearances with the Phillies last season. He spent most of 2014 in the bullpen for Triple A Lehigh Valley, where he went 3-2 with a 1.45 ERA in 38 games (two starts)

PITTSBURGH - Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage called Domonic Brown into his office Saturday afternoon. He asked the outfielder how he was feeling. Brundage told Brown he was out of that night's IronPigs lineup. The manager wanted Brown to get better mentally and physically. The triple-A manager left his office. Brown was left a bit confused. The team's strength and conditioning coach then told Brown that the manager wanted to see him again. "Then I knew something was up," Brown said.

CINCINNATI - Needing a starting pitcher who could better preserve the bullpen and not wanting to push the development of their prospects, the Phillies went outside the organization to fill their rotation. Kevin Correia joined them Monday at Great American Ball Park after signing a major-league contract for the remainder of the season. A 34-year-old righthander with 12 years of big-league experience, Correia will start Friday in the series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

DENVER - Injuries to Phillies starting pitchers could afford Severino Gonzalez, with all of seven starts above double A, a monthlong stay in the rotation. At the very least, the 22-year-old righthander will start Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Gonzalez takes the spot of Chad Billingsley, whose right shoulder strain is expected to sideline him for four to six weeks, according to Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock. Billingsley, who had made three starts since returning from a two-year absence after a pair of elbow surgeries, will be shut down for about two weeks.

AS A MAJOR LEAGUE pitcher, it isn't every day that you turn around and find a baseball in your neck. Which is a good thing - turns out it hurts. "It's like I got punched in the throat from around the corner," Sean O'Sullivan said. This was in the sixth inning of the Phillies' 6-0 win over the Diamondbacks yesterday. On most afternoons, the six scoreless innings that O'Sullivan pitched would have been the headline, but he spent at least as much time after the game talking about a throw from his own catcher that nearly ended his outing at its most pivotal moment.

The Phillies' pitching depth took a pair of hits Sunday. Chad Billingsley was placed on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder and David Buchanan was carted off the field after hurting his right leg while fielding a ground ball for triple-A Lehigh Valley. Billingsley will miss his scheduled start Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. A likely candidate to start for him is righthander Severino Gonzalez, who is slated to pitch Wednesday in triple A. Friday was Billingsley's third and best start of the season.

Freddy Galvis looked behind him, watched the ball stay fair, and kept moving. He crossed the plate with ease in Friday's eighth inning, giving the Phillies the winning run in a 4-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The hit - a pinch-hit single by Jeff Francoeur - slapped the dirt just past third base, narrowly falling into play. It was Francoeur's third pinch-hit and third pinch-hit RBI of the season. He was thrown out at second after trying to stretch the hit into a double.

Chase Utley snapped the clasp of his silver watch after dressing at his locker. Another day was complete. Another loss - this time a 7-4 defeat to the New York Mets - was finished. Utley went 1 for 3 with a run scored. His lone hit was his first double of the season. It gave him a hit on consecutive days for the first time this season. Utley's batting average rose to .116, an increase of 17 points from where it stood before Saturday's loss. It is still the major-league's lowest mark.

ATLANTA - A brisk top of the first inning Tuesday night ensured only three extra minutes for any nerves to stew as Chad Billingsley readied in the visitors dugout. The 30-year-old righthander walked to the Turner Field mound, threw his seven warm-up pitches, and toed the rubber to face Nick Markakis. After two years, two elbow surgeries, and countless steps of rehabilitation on his right elbow, Billingsley was a major-league pitcher again. The results in the Phillies' 9-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves proved far from what the pitcher had envisioned, but he left with some encouragement.
