Lilly placed on waivers by Dodgers

Lilly placed on waivers by Dodgers

DENVER -- Ted Lilly is the latest Dodgers player to be placed on waivers by the club, according to FOX Sports.

The team is believed to have placed on waivers virtually all of its upcoming free agents to provide flexibility should management decide that a postseason berth is not realistic and it's time to plan for 2011.

Lilly is 5-0 since being acquired from the Cubs before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline.

The Dodgers' upcoming free agents are Brad Ausmus, Rod Barajas, Ronnie Belliard, Octavio Dotel, Jay Gibbons, Reed Johnson, Hiroki Kuroda, Lilly, Manny Ramirez, Scott Podsednik and Jeff Weaver.

Ramirez was placed on waivers Wednesday and was claimed by the White Sox and Rangers on Friday. The White Sox won the claim because they have a worse record and are in negotiations with the Dodgers to acquire the outfielder.

Some in the Dodgers' pool of free agents are believed to have either cleared waivers earlier this month or been pulled back.

Players must be traded before next Wednesday to be eligible for postseason rosters.
