Mets, Tigers Not On Lilly's No-Trade List

Ted Lilly’s contract lists several teams he won’t approve a trade to:

Ted Lilly’s 10-team no-trade clause includes the Phillies, Twins and Rays, according to major-league sources.

However, the Mets and Tigers aren’t on that list and both teams have expressed interest:

The struggling New York Mets have shown the most interest in Lilly. The Detroit Tigers are also believed to be shifting their attention to Lilly after hitting a wall in their talks with the Arizona Diamondbacks centering on Haren. Scouts from several contenders, including the Mets, Tigers, Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Dodgers, were at Wrigley Field on Wednesday for Lilly’s start against right-hander Brett Myers, who is being shopped by the Astros. Myers has also drawn interest from the Mets.

Other sources indicate there’s no imminent action on the part of the Cubs in the trade market. We’ll update this StoryStream with new information as available.
