Lilly, Elbert to make rehab outings at Class A

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers left-hander Ted Lilly expects to start Wednesday in a Minor League rehab game with Class A Rancho Cucamonga, where reliever Scott Elbert is also scheduled to pitch.

Lilly, on the disabled list with a strained right rib cage, said he will throw about 75 pitches. He threw a bullpen session at Dodger Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and manager Don Mattingly said Monday that the veteran was not experiencing discomfort.


Elbert is working his way back from a pair of elbow operations during the winter. The left-hander began his rehab assignment Friday with the Quakes, tossing a perfect inning and earning the win. He had another 1-2-3 inning Monday, striking out two and throwing 17 pitches. Elbert has not pitched in the Major Leagues since August.
