The Dodgers finally have the resources to acquire additional talent, and its the year Major League Baseball has added an additional wild card team and precious few teams are out of the race and wanting to deal. And right now, it looks like the Dodgers could use an additional starting pitcher. Trainer Sue Falsone said left-hander Ted Lilly is scheduled to undergo an arthrogram on his sore left shoulder on Friday. Lilly said he threw on the side Wednesday and reported no improvement. Lilly, 36, has been on the disabled list since May 28 after complaining of shoulder soreness. Falsone said the MRI with injected dye is not designed to show injury to the muscle, but to inspect the joint and show possible damage to the labrum. Lilly previously had arthroscopic surgery to clean up his labrum on Nov. 3, 2009. We know its not going to be completely clean after the previous surgery, she said. Still, it appears Lilly could be out for a while, which underscores the teams lack of rotation depth. Nathan Eovaldi was called up to take Lillys place in the rotation, and although the Dodgers like him plenty, hes about it for their system insurance policy. The best guy going at triple-A Albuquerque is John Ely, who has apparently regained his control (4-3, 3.58 ERA, 65 strikeouts, 15 walks in 60 13 innings). The Dodgers have been looking around for rotation help, not that there appears much out there. They looked at signing free-agent Roy Oswalt, whom they were convinced was going to sign with his hometown Texas Rangers, and he did. A year ago under owner Frank McCourt, the Dodgers were provided the financial resources to expand payroll. This year under Guggenheim Baseball Management, they have the funds but may find that teams willing to trade are in short supply. Lilly is 5-1 with a 3.14 ERA in eight starts this season. --Steve Dilbeck
