NL West News: Ted Lilly Signs Split Contract With Rival Giants

The Dodgers signed former Giants closer Brian Wilson in late July and it looks like the Giants are going one up on the Dodgers by signing former starting pitcher Ted Lilly.

In late July, the Dodgers designated Lilly for assignment and will be on the hook for all of the $12 million left on his contract, but could be seeing him down the stretch.

According to Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com, Lilly will start in the minors for the Giants:

Unhappy with the way the Dodgers treated him, Lilly refused a minor league assignment during the season as he declared he was healthy while the team didn’t want him to pitch.

In five starts this season, Lilly is 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA and his biggest contribution to the team was throwing batting practice to Matt Kemp when he was injured.

The Dodgers and Giants face each other another seven times in September and it’s possible they’ll get their chance to tee off on the left hander at least once.

Update from Chris Cotilo of MLBDailyDish.com:
