PHOENIX — Ted Lilly will throw a bullpen session on Friday, the results of which will decide whether he will pitch in the season-opening series in San Diego or start the season on the disabled list.
Lilly missed his previous Cactus League start due to a stiff neck.
If Lilly is ruled out for the start of the season, No. 5 starter Chris Capuano would slide into his spot. With the four-game series in San Diego followed by a day off and Clayton Kershaw scheduled to start the home opener on April 10, the Dodgers were previously planning to skip Capuano’s first turn in the rotation.
