      Athletics' Rich Hill: One-year deal with A's

      Hill agreed to a one-year, $6 million contract with the A's on Tuesday, pending a physical, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports. The 35-year-old surprised everyone by allowing just five earned runs in four starts for Boston last season (29 innings), posting a 36:5 K:BB over the final couple weeks. If nothing else, he should prove a valuable innings-eater for Oakland next season, but ideally the team will be able to trade him if his success carries over to the first half. Hill owns a 4.54 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 500 career innings at the major league level.

      Red Sox SP Rich Hill throws well in loss Thursday

      Red Sox starting pitcher Rich Hill (2-1) was effective Thursday against the Yankees, giving up two runs on four hits and three walks with six strikeouts in six innings, but he was stuck with the loss. Boston's season may be over, but Hill was startlingly good in his four-start sample after five years away from an MLB rotation. He finishes the season having allowed just five runs on 14 hits and five walks while striking out 36 in 29 innings. That leaves Hill with a 1.55 ERA and 0.66 WHIP, numbers that will give him some sleeper luster deep into next year's drafts if he can secure a rotation spot.

      Red Sox SP Rich Hill strikes out 10 in complete game shutout

      Red Sox starter Rich Hill was dazzling again Friday night, tossing a complete game, two-hit shutout against the Orioles. He walked one and struck out 10. Hill (2-0, 1.17 ERA) was inserted into the Boston rotation on September 13 - making his first major league start since 2006. All he has done is hold opponents to 10 hits in 23 innings while striking out 30 (10 in each start). Opponents are hitting .127 against him and he has a 0.52 WHIP to go with a 1.17 ERA. With a career 4.55 ERA in 200 games (73 starts) it's not likely to last, but enjoy the ride.

      Red Sox SP Rich Hill posts another double-digit strikeout performance

      Red Sox pitcher Rich Hill picked up the win, throwing seven innings while giving up three earned runs while striking out 10 in Sunday's victory over the Blue Jays. Making his second start of the season, Hill was once again electric, racking up double-digit strikeouts in both of his starts this season. With how well he's pitched in the past two starts, he'll likely continue to pitch through the rest of the Red Sox season.

      Rich Hill to start Sunday's game for Red Sox vs. Blue Jays

      Red Sox pitcher Rich Hill will start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. While Hill held Tampa Bay to just one hit and fanned 10 in seven scoreless innings in his first start of the year, he'll face a much tougher test Sunday in a Blue Jays team that destroys left-handed pitching (.822 combined OPS). To make matters worse, the game is also in Toronto, but Hill still makes for a decent bench stash in deeper formats.

      Red Sox P Rich Hill excels in first start since 2009

      The Red Sox were hoping for the best when they gave journeyman reliever Rich Hill his first start since 2009 on Sunday against Tampa Bay. And that's what they got. Hill provided a shocker by pitching seven shutout innings and allowed just one hit with one walk and 10 strikeouts. The lone safety was an infield single in the third inning by J.P. Arencibia. All Hill got for his effort was a no-decision, but he did keep his team in a game it eventually won.

      Rich Hill to make first MLB start in six years for Red Sox on Sunday

      Red Sox left-hander Rich Hill will start Sunday's game against the Orioles. This will be Hill's first big-league start since 2009, when he was a member of the Orioles. Hill, who signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox in mid-August, made 13 starts for Baltimore in that '09 season, going 3-3 with a 7.80 ERA. The now 35-year-old has not pitched in the Major Leagues this season. He split the 2014 campaign between the Yankees and Angels, making 16 relief appearances.

      Red Sox set to bring up SP Rich Hill, RP Jonathan Aro

      The Red Sox are set to promote veteran left-hander Rich Hill and righty Jonathan Aro from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, per the Boston Herald. Hill, who has yet to pitch in the big leagues this season, was released by the Nationals in June. He performed well after signing with Boston, compiling a 2.78 ERA in the minors. He could be used as a starter as part of a six-man rotation down the stretch. Aro made three regrettable appearances in early summer for the Red Sox, allowing six runs on 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings.
