Ted Lilly Rumors: Thursday

The latest on Cubs lefty Ted Lilly

  • The Tigers are not pursuing Lilly, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.
  • The Twins, who are on Lilly's no-trade list, are unlikely to acquire him, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (on Twitter). 
  • The Mets are still engaging the Cubs about Lilly, according to Newsday's Ken Davidoff, who suggests a deal is unlikely (Twitter link). The Mets don't want to trade Josh Thole for Lilly, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com (Twitter link).
  • A Mets official told Joel Sherman of the New York Post it's "very doubtful" they acquire Lilly.  The Mets do not want to take on most to all of the $4.37MM left on Lilly's contract and give up prospects too.  As for Brett Myers, the Astros are "almost completely unwilling to engage in serious discussions."  Sherman says the Mets might wait until August to acquire a pitcher.
  • Yesterday we learned that the Dodgers and Twins are still in on Lilly.

Interesting they won’t take him on but yesterday it was reported they’re willing to pay for an overprice, underperforming pitcher, lol.

The league has already given a refusal on acquiring Oliver Perez from themselves.

It’s time for the Mets to finalize a deal with Cleveland for Westbrook

It’s not even worth it, lmao. Westbrook isn’t going to put them over the top, why bother?
