The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to June 5) with a neck sprain and recalled right-handed pitcher Matt Magill from Triple-A Albuquerque. Magill, 23, will make today's start for Los Angeles and last pitched on Sunday in a spot start for the Dodgers at Colorado, allowing seven runs (six earned) on five hits in 6.0 innings and taking the loss in the Dodgers' 7-2 defeat. In five big league starts this season, the Simi Valley native is 0-1 with a 6.38 ERA after making his Major League debut on April 27 against the Brewers. Magill has gone 1-0 with a 2.16 ERA and a .183 opponents' batting average in five starts with Triple-A Albuquerque this year.
Lilly has made five starts for Los Angeles this season, going 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA, and will be making his third DL stint of the season. The 37-year-old missed the first 19 games of the campaign while recovering from left shoulder surgery and was also out for 17 games from April 30-May 20 with a right rib cage strain.
