Twins Trade Target: Ted Lilly
by Brad Berreman
Since the Minnesota Twins were unable to acquire Cliff Lee from the
Seattle Mariners last week, they may wish to turn their attention to
another veteran left-hander. I present to you, faithful readers, Ted
Lilly of the Chicago Cubs. With the Cubs sitting 9.5 games out in
the NL Central, they should be getting some calls about Lilly from
teams that did not acquire Lee and find (rightly, perhaps) that
Houston�s Roy Oswalt is too expensive to bring aboard.
Lilly is 3-8 with a 4.08 ERA this season in 15 starts (97 innings).
He began the season on the disabled list after undergoing arthroscopic
surgery on his left shoulder during the offseason. He has been hurt
by a lack of run support in Chicago this season. His last two starts
(14 earned runs over 10.1 innings) have not been good, so his trade
value could easily be declining. Prior to that, he had allowed three
earned runs or less in nine out of ten starts and had pitched at least
six innings in 11 of his first 13 starts of the season. In 2009,
Lilly went 12-9 with a 3.10 ERA in 27 starts (177 innings).
