According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet, Lilly has undergone a procedure to have nerve endings in his neck cauterized, in order to relieve the pain in that area. The information came from Lilly’s agent, Larry O’Brien, who said the procedure had been beneficial for the veteran. Lilly visited a cervical spine specialist after dealing with neck pain and stiffness during a difficult season with the Dodgers. Those visits led to a procedure that cauterized the nerve endings on the right side of his neck. Though it’s not considered surgery, doctors used a large needle to burn the nerve endings on Lilly’s neck. So far it’s been working. “That procedure has given him relief,” agent Larry O’Brien told sportsnet.ca.

Giants Re-Sign Guillermo Quiroz to a Minor League Contract

The San Francisco Giants made a low-profile and slightly surprising move this week, and re-signed catcher Guillermo Quiroz to a Minor League contract. Quiroz was the backup catcher for much of last season while Hector Sanchez dealt with a shoulder injury, but he didn’t do very much to earn a spot with the club this season, and was designated for assignment back in August.
