Lilly hired by Cubs as Epstein special assistant

MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Ted Lilly has been hired by the Chicago Cubs as a special assistant to Theo Epstein, the team's president of baseball operations.

Lilly retired after last season with a 130-113 record and a 4.14 ERA. He pitched for 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).

Chicago said Tuesday he will spend time with the team during spring training, visit minor league clubs during the season, evaluate amateur players ahead of the June draft and scout professional players.
