LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have designated injury-plagued left-hander Ted Lilly for assignment and recalled utilityman Elian Herrera from Triple-A Albuquerque.
The moves were made Thursday by the NL West leaders.
Lilly, 37, was 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA in five starts this season, and has been on the disabled list three times. He missed the first 3 1-2 weeks while recovering from shoulder surgery, then sat out another three weeks with a ribcage strain. He hasn't pitched since June 4 because of a neck strain.
The 15-year veteran and two-time All-Star was 24-21 with a 3.83 ERA in 58 starts with the Dodgers after joining them in 2010. He was 5-0 with a 1.83 ERA in his first five starts and then signed a three-year, $33 million contract following that season.
Herrera batted .290 with six homers, 40 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 80 games with Albuquerque. He has played in three games with the Dodgers this season.
