Nathan Eovaldi appears headed back to the Dodgers to make at least one start for left-hander Ted Lilly. Lilly was off to a brilliant start this season, going 6-1 with a 1.79 earned-run average in his seven starts before getting knocked around for eight runs in 3 13 innings in Arizona on Wednesday during his eighth start. Chattanooga pitching coach Chuck Crim confirmed to The Times' Kevin Baxter that Eovaldi is headed to Los Angeles and said he was told the right-hander would take Lilly's place in the rotation. Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly was unusually coy about Eovaldi, who was scheduled to start Saturday night for double-A Chattanooga but instead pitched one inning of relief, striking out all three batters. I guaranteed you he wont be here Monday, Mattingly said. He did not, however, guarantee Eovaldi would not be at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday when Lilly is supposed to start. Lilly began the season on the disabled list with a strained neck. Eovaldi, 2-2 with a 3.09 ERA at Chattanooga, appeared in 10 games for the Dodgers last season (six starts), going 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA. As a starter he went 1-2 with a 3.09 ERA. --Steve Dilbeck
