The numbers were not the prettiest thing baseball has ever seen, but nonetheless Ted Lilly said he’s once again ready to rock ’n’ roll.
Lilly, on the disabled list for the second time this season, said his strained rib cage gave him no trouble in Wednesday’s rehab start for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga and doesn’t believe he needs a second start before rejoining the rotation.
“I don’t think so,” Lilly said. “I mean, I’m healthy.”
Lilly went five innings against San Jose, allowing four runs on five hits, three walks and a hit batter. He struck out three.
The left-hander said he assumed he would next throw in a bullpen session on Friday. He traveled with the team Wednesday night to begin a six-game road trip in Atlanta.
