Dodgers' Ted Lilly Placed On Disabled List With Shoulder Inflammation

The Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday placed left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation, one day before his scheduled start against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Dodgers recalled left-handed pitcher Michael Antonini to replace Lilly on the active roster.

Lilly has not had an MRI and hopes to recover "with an injection and medication," per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, and Lilly hopes to resume throwing by Thursday or Friday per Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

Nathan Eovaldi will reportedly start in place of Lilly on Tuesday, so it is unclear just how long Antonini might stay. He either gives the team an extra reliever for one game, or perhaps a few if the Dodgers decide to use 13 pitchers until Juan Rivera is ready to return from the DL later in the week.

Lilly gives the Dodgers nine players currently on the disabled list.
