Ted Lilly to throw simulated inning Wednesday.

Ted Lilly will throw a simulated 15-pitch inning Wednesday as the left-hander continues to push for a return before the end of the season. Lilly has been on the disabled list since May 24, alternately bothered by shoulder and back injuries, and hasn’t pitched in a rehabilitation game since Aug. 16.

Don Mattingly said he would welcome Lilly back this season as a reliever, as the Dodgers only have one healthy left-hander in their bullpen, Randy Choate. Scott Elbert is also on the disabled list with inflammation in his left elbow.

Since Lilly has had numerous setbacks, it may take more than a couple days to know how much progress he’s actually made.
