Chris Capuano aggravating his calf injury during the Zack Greinke-Carlos Quentin scuffle has opened the door for Ted Lilly to join the Dodgers’ rotation and his first start will be Wednesday against the Mets.
Lilly is coming back from September shoulder surgery and had to be talked into continuing his minor-league rehab assignment after feeling he was ready to return last week.
His latest rehab start was anything but impressive, as Lilly allowed four runs and eight total baserunners in five innings at Single-A on Tuesday. Overall in three rehab starts he coughed up 15 runs in 17 innings, so the 37-year-old left-hander is a big question mark.
