The Los Angeles Dodgers have requested unconditional release waivers on left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly according to a source. The 37-year old was designated for assignment on July 25th and will be free to sign with any team once the 48-hour waiver period has passed.

Lilly is currently drawing interest from a few clubs and hopes to sign on Monday or Tuesday at the latest according to the source. He is looking to join a contender which means that the weak starting pitching market at the trade deadline should help him find a job soon. He is willing to either start or relieve and will accept a minor league assignment in order to prove himself to his new team.
