Cubs Name Ted Lilly Special Assistant To The President/General Manager

|

MESA, AZ - The Chicago Cubs today named Ted Lilly as Special Assistant to President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein and General Manager Jed Hoyer.

Lilly returns to the organization after spending nearly four years with the Cubs from 2007-10, helping the club to back-to-back National League Central Division titles in 2007 and 2008. 

In his new role with the organization, Lilly will spend time with the club during spring training, visit the club's minor league affiliates during the season, evaluate amateur players leading up to the draft and perform professional scouting assignments.

The former southpaw recently announced his retirement as a player after 15 seasons with Montreal (1999), the New York Yankees (2000-02), Oakland (2002-03), Toronto (2004-06), the Cubs (2007-10) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (2010-13). Lilly completed his big league career with a 130-113 record and a 4.14 ERA (913 ER/982.2 IP) in 356 appearances, including 331 starts.
