The Los Angeles Dodgers will get some pitching help soon. They already have plenty of help in the rotation, but two of their main starters are nearing a return. Both Chad Billingsley and Ted Lilly have yet to pitch this season, but they are working on some rehab outings to get ready for taking the mound with the Dodgers for the first time in the 2013 regular season.
According to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, both Billingsley and Lilly are scheduled to make rehab starts this week.

The Dodgers have started the season with some decent firepower in Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw, and Josh Beckett, but they have two more starters waiting in the wings to round out the rotations. Billingsley is recovering from a contusion on his finger. Lilly is still recovering from surgery on his shoulder.
Billingsley and Lilly are solid options to fill out the fourth and fifth spots in the rotations. Billingsley has a career 80-61 with a 3.66 ERA. Lilly is 130-111 with a 4.13 ERA in his career.
