The San Francisco Giants have signed Edna Valley resident Ted Lilly to a minor league contract after he was officially released by the Los Angeles Dodgers. The deal is contingent upon a physical.
The Dodgers already are on the hook to pay the 37 year old the balance of the $13 million he's owed this season. Lilly had shoulder surgery in the offseason and battled neck and shoulder problems this season. He spent three stints on the disabled list and went 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA in five starts.
Lilly is slated to start for the Giants' Triple-A club in Fresno on Tuesday night. The Giants expect to recall him to the Major Leagues by the end of the month if all goes well.
Lilly has made 331 starts in his year big league career that started in 1999. The lefty owns an 130-113 record with a 4.14 ERA.
