In order to bring Lilly and Ryan Theriot to Chavez Ravine the Dodgers had to relinquish Blake Dewitt and Minor Leaguers Kyle Smit and Brett Wallach. The Cubs also sent 2.5 million dollars to the Dodgers in the deal. Lilly, who was actually drafted by the Dodgers back in 1996, is happy to be returning to California.
Theriot will likely split time with Jamey Carroll, but provides improved depth in the infield. Theriot has played his entire career with the Chicago Cubs. This season he is batting .284 with one home run and 21 runs batted in.
Trade Deadline Summary
The Dodgers also received a total of three million dollars in the trades.
