The Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ted Lily is fighting for his spot on the pitching staff this season, fresh off of off-season shoulder surgery.
Lily was scratched at one point this Spring Training due to flu like sympthoms. The 37 year old pitcher has been rumored to be one of the expendable pitchers this Spring along with Aaron Hurang and Chris Capuano due to the stacked Dodger pitching staff.
After the Dodgers acquired big time pitchers Zack Greinke and Hyun-jin Ryu this off season, both Lilly and Harang could be the main player sent elsewhere sometime before and possibly during the season. Harang was seen pitching by the Milwaukee Brewers and Baltimore Orioles scouts according to several reports.
More than likely Capuano has the best chance of remaining with the club, and could be named their fifth starter who is good fit in the current rotation.
The 6’3”, 215 pound lefty, who in 2012 had a career low 3.72 ERA and 1.220 WHIP, won 12 games, and pitched 198 innings.
Capuano has proven that when apart of the rotation could pay out huge dividends in the long run for this Dodger team, as he produced 162 strikeouts last season.
