Dodgers | Ted Lilly effective in first start

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Ted Lilly gave up only one run in five innings in a no-decision against the New York Mets Wednesday, April 24, in his first start back since having left shoulder surgery last season. Lilly struck out seven and wiggled out of several jams to keep his team in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Lilly isn't a flashy pitcher and won't strike out a ton of hitters anymore, but as evidenced by his first start in the bigs in almost a year, he gets the job done. The Mets had been particularly successful against southpaws this season, too, making his first start back even more impressive. Lilly is worth considering in deep mixed leagues if you need the innings.
