Ted Lilly Scratched From Simulated Game

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ted Lilly was scratched from a simulated start Thursday, according to Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A.

Lilly has been trying to work his way back from a shoulder left ailment that has held him out of action since May. After being scratched, Lilly paid a visit to team doctors but the team has yet to put out an official statement on his status.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly refused to call this turn of events a setback but he still had some cryptic words to say on the subject:

"Teddy's been trying to push through and get ready, but he starts to weigh the options of what's worth it."

The Dodgers only have 18 regular season games left on their schedule. Lilly was looking to come back as a reliever sometime this month but after this scratch it seems the odds are now against him.

Lilly was quite effective in his eight starts this season, compiling five wins in eight starts to go along with a 3.14 ERA.
