Dodgers release Ted Lilly

Stephen Dunn

The left-hander hopes to find a new team on either Monday or Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have requested unconditional release waivers on left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly, according to a source. The 37-year old was designated for assignment on July 25th, and will be free to sign with any team once the 48-hour waiver period has passed.

Lilly is currently drawing interest from a few clubs and hopes to sign on Monday or Tuesday at the latest, according to the source. He is looking to join a contender, which means that the weak starting pitching market at the trade deadline should help him find a job soon. He is willing to either start or relieve, and will accept a minor league assignment in order to prove himself to his new team.

In five starts on the season, Lilly is 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA, 7.0 K/9, and 3.9 BB/9. In fifteen major league seasons with the Expos (1999), Yankees (2000-2002), Athletics (2002-2003), Blue Jays (2004-2006), Cubs (2007-2010) and Dodgers (2010-2013), Lilly has posted a 130-113 record with a 4.14 ERA, 7.6 K/9, and 3.0 BB/9. He is in the final year of the 3-year, $33 million extension he signed with the Dodgers before the 2011 season, and will hit the open market this winter.
