Cubs' Lilly has no timetable for return
Speaking Friday at the team's winter convention, Lilly said he has started throwing lightly two-to-three times a week.
Lilly has been one of the team's most consistent pitcher over the last three seasons, going 44-26 with a 3.70 ERA. Lilly, who signed a four-year $40 million deal with the Cubs in December 2006, was 12-9 last season.
General manager Jim Hendry says Lilly could be back by the third week of the regular season.
