Banged up Ted Lilly adds knee injury to offseason shoulder surgery

Feb 18, 2010, 3:49 PM EDT

Ted Lilly was already taking things easy coming back from November shoulder surgery and now he also has a knee injury to deal with.
Lilly had cartilage removed from his left knee in July, but this time the right knee gave him problems after playing catch from flat ground this week and he’s scheduled to undergo an MRI exam. Even before the knee began flaring up Lilly was being viewed as a longshot to be ready for Opening Day, so any kind of setback at this point would make him all but certain to begin the season on the disabled list.
Lilly has gone 44-26 with a 3.70 ERA during three seasons in Chicago, including 12-9 with a career-best 3.10 ERA in 177 innings last year. Jeff Samardzija, Sean Marshall, and Carlos Silva would be options to fill in for him if needed, with Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster, Randy Wells, and Tom Gorzelanny manning the other four rotation spots.
