SAN DIEGO -- Dodgers starting pitcher Ted Lilly threw his first bullpen session Saturday since being placed on the disabled list June 5 with a neck strain.
Lilly threw all fastballs and reported no discomfort in the neck, which responded well to an epidural injection.
He is already eligible to come off the DL, but needs to throw several more bullpen sessions and go on a Minor League rehab assignment before he can rejoin the big league club.
