3/8 Ted Lilly update

Ted Lilly, coming back from arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder, threw 30 pitches off the mound Sunday. It was his second time off a mound but first time with some intensity.

“So far, no bumps in the road and we’ll just keep progressing,” pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Monday.

The Cubs aren’t sure if Lilly will be able to pitch in a Cactus League game. He is not expected to be ready by Opening Day but perhaps the middle of April or early May.

“You always look for any bumps in the road that might come up and hopefully limit the time if there are any,” Rothschild said. “He’s already had the virus so hopefully that’s all behind him.”
