Billingsley’s comeback an example of perseverance

Chad Billingsley persevered through two elbow surgeries in 14 months to return to the big leagues Tuesday. The challenge of persevering through one rough start must seem minor by comparison. “Definitely not the way I envisioned it going but a couple of mistakes and I paid for it,” Billingsley said following Tuesday’s 9-0 loss to the Braves at Turner Field. “It’s part of being back out there again, but I felt good.”
