Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ted Lilly was shut down for the season on Friday, reports Dylan Hernandez, of the Los Angeles Times.

According to Hernandez, in addition to being shut down, Lilly will undergo shoulder surgery on Friday.

Lilly had been on the 60-day disabled list for left shoulder inflammation, and has not made a start for the Dodgers since May 23. Although brief, Lilly put together a solid season overall, amassing a 3.14 ERA and 5.7 K/9 in forty-eight and two-thirds innings.

The Dodgers (74-70) are still in the middle of a playoff chase and have since replaced Lilly’s spot in the rotation with new additions Josh Beckett and Joe Blanton. Still owed $12 million next year, the Dodgers have to hope Lilly can come back and throw the nearly two hundred innings (with a 3.97 ERA) he managed for them last season.
