Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers have officially released left-hander Ted Lilly, who was designated for assignment on July 25 and passed through waivers unclaimed.

Lilly posted a 5.09 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 23 innings (five starts) this season for Los Angeles, striking out 18 batters but issuing 10 walks. He’s been bothered most of the summer by chronic neck discomfort.

The 37-year-old southpaw is now a free agent and can sign with any team for the major league minimum. He is healthy at the moment and figures to draw interest given the lack of financial commitment required. The Dodgers still owe him whatever remains on his $13 million salary for 2013.

    Oakland or Washington seem to be good fits.

      Was just thinking that. Ohlendorf and Detwiler on the DL (Det may not be back this year). Taylor Jordan will be shut down. Need a body out there.

    Good riddance Teddy! He had a nice half a season when the Dodgers traded for him, and parlayed that into a generous contract and has since been mostly hurt and terrible when healthy. It was frustrating at best hearing him bitch about AAA rehab assignments while he collected his $12M+ paychecks, and best of luck to any team that picks up an oft-injured starter that is 37 or so and tops out at 88 mph.
