PEORIA, Ariz. -- Ted Lilly's return from shoulder surgery hit a bump in the road Tuesday when he was scratched from his scheduled Cactus League appearance against the San Diego Padres. The left-hander's 2012 season ended May 23 after eight starts in which he went 5-1 with a 3.14 ERA. He pitched once this spring, going two innings against the Angels, allowing just a run on Howie Kendrick's solo home run. Lilly, 37, one of four starters likely battling for the final spot in the Dodger rotation, was to follow Clayton Kershaw to the mound Tuesday but he has been out of camp a couple of days with illness. Manager Don Mattingly said Lilly's wife, Natasha, and 2-year-old son Theodore Roosevelt (really) were treated last week for flu-like symptoms, after which Lilly became sick. "Teddy's hopefully going to throw a side session tomorrow," Mattingly said. "He's basically dehydrated. So he's getting back out and playing catch today." Mattingly, who was pleased with Lilly's performance last week, said Lilly's arm is fine. "Just sickness," he said. "It just kind of knocks his schedule off a little bit." -Kevin Baxter
