Lilly Placed on DL

Amid all of the speculation it has now been confirmed that Ted Lilly is hurt with a bum shoulder.  From the Dodgers press release:

The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to May 24) with left shoulder inflammation and recalled left-handed pitcher Michael Antonini from Triple-A Albuquerque. 
Michael Antonini makes another return to the Dodgers.  He came up for 2 days in late April (24-25), but didn't get into a game.  So, he has yet to make an official Major League appearance. 

Hopefully, Lilly's shoulder problems doesn't grow to something larger.  He's been very good this year, and has confidently taken over the #2 pitcher spot.  Having him go down leaves a giant hole in our rotation.  As has been reported elsewhere, Nate Eovaldi will be taking over Lilly's starts for the time being.
