Los Angeles - The Los Angeles Dodgers made it official on Tuesday by agreeing to a three-year contract with left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly.

Financial terms were not released.

"Ted helped stabilize our rotation both in terms of his pitching ability and his leadership," said Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti. "He gave us everything we were looking for in a veteran pitcher down the stretch last season."

Lilly was obtained from the Chicago Cubs, along with second baseman Ryan Theriot, at the July 31 trade deadline and went 7-4 with a 3.52 earned-run average in 12 starts with the Dodgers.

The 34-year-old finished the 2010 campaign at 10-12 with a 3.62 ERA in 30 combined starts while receiving the lowest run support in the major leagues.

He has compiled a 113-96 mark and 4.18 ERA in 310 games, 285 as a starter, over 12 big-league seasons with the Expos, Yankees, Athletics, Blue Jays, Cubs and Dodgers.

Los Angeles originally selected Lilly in the 1996 draft and sent him to Montreal at the trade deadline in 1998.
