Ted Lilly Pushed Back A Day With Elbow Tenderness; Rubby De La Rosa To Start Monday

Ted Lilly hasn't thrown a bullpen session in between his last 3-4 starts, per Don Mattingly.

With the off day two days ago, the Dodgers have shuffled their rotation. Ted Lilly hasn't been able to throw his scheduled bullpen sessions in between starts for the last thee weeks, with elbow tenderness. Lilly has been moved back a day, and will pitch Tuesday against the Mets. Rubby De La Rosa will start on Monday, on four days rest.

Lilly in his last three starts has allowed 18 runs in 14 2/3 innings, and has given up 23 hits and four home runs. "[Lilly] said the other day after he pitched in Minnesota he went out and threw and felt good," manager Don Mattingly said. "I felt like if we give him an extra day, and give him a bullpen, it will give him a chance to work some things out."

In other news, Rafael Furcal is here tonight, and will be activated before Sunday's game barring something unforeseen. As for the corresponding roster move, Dee Gordon is expected to be optioned to Triple A Albuquerque, though Mattingly wouldn't comment, saying only that there were a lot of decisions that needed to be made tonight. "It's somebody's last supper tonight, and they don't need to know that before the game," Mattingly said.

Jon Garland's status, meanwhile, is "up in the air," per Mattingly. Garland has tried to throw on the side a few times and has also met with Dodgers physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache, as well as another doctor for a second opinion as to his status. Though it is unknown if surgery is needed for Garland, who has been on the DL for a month with right shoulder inflammation, Mattingly did say that if Garland were to need surgery, it would likely end his season.
