It had previously been reported Lilly would miss his next start. Nathan Eovaldi was recalled from Double-A Chattanooga to take his place in the rotation.
Lilly is 5-1 with a 3.14 ERA in eight starts this season. His only loss came last Wednesday when he gave up nine hits and eight runs in 3 1/3 innings. Before that start, his ERA was only 1.79.
The 36-year-old is one of many Dodgers off to a hot start. Los Angeles has a league-best record of 32-15 but has dealt with many injuries, including to star outfielder Matt Kemp.
