Ted Lilly to start for Dodgers on Wednesday against Mets
Dodgers lefty Ted Lilly will end his minor-league rehab assignment in time to start Wednesday night in Citi Field.
You may consider Lilly to be the replacement for the replacement (Chris Capuano) for Zack Greinke. Greinke is of course sidelined for the next several weeks after breaking his collarbone during a tussle with Carlos Quentin of the Padres, and Capuano wound up on the DL after aggravating a calf injury during his first start in place of Greinke.
The 37-year-old Lilly, who recently wrapped up a minor-league rehab assignment, will throw side sessions Friday and Sunday. He's been hampered by injuries for much of his career, but he's been effective when healthy: 107 ERA+ across almost 2,000 major-league innings.
