Apparently uninterested in testing free agency for the second time in his career, Ted Lilly is close to reupping with the Dodgers for three years, reports FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal.
A free agent after 2006, Lilly signed a four-year, $40 million deal with the Cubs, picking that one over similar offers from the Blue Jays and Yankees. He spent 3 1/2 years with Chicago before being traded to the Dodgers in July. From that point on, he went 7-4 with a 3.52 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP in 12 starts.
Lilly is probably getting similar dollars this time around. He’s thrown 200 innings just twice in his career and never topped 210, but he has made at least 27 starts each of the last five years and been an above average pitcher either year. He’s clearly worth eight figures a year in this market.
