Hill (elbow) expects to be ready when spring training resumes, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. When exactly play resumes remains to be seen, though reports suggest that won't happen before mid-June at the earliest. That fits with Hill's timeline, as he's been targeting a return in June or July since undergoing elbow surgery back in October. He's been able to throw throughout the shutdown, allowing him to stay on his original timetable.
Hill (elbow) is continuing his rehab at home while baseball remains shut down and is still on track to pitch in June, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. Depending on when play is able to resume, it's possible Hill won't wind up missing any games due to his offseason elbow surgery. He's expected to be able to maintain a similar rehab schedule from home, so his timeline won't be significantly impacted.
Hill (elbow) appeared to be a full participant in fielding drills during Wednesday's full-squad workout, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Hill is recovering from October surgery for his left elbow and is slated to open the season on the injured list, but he'll still be able to do most non-pitching drills this spring while he advances slowly through his throwing program. Park relayed last week that Hill has been able to play catch off flat ground, and the southpaw plans to progress to long toss in the outfield in the next week or so. Hill thinks he'll be ready to begin a month-long rehab assignment in May before making his Twins debut at some point in early June.
Hill (elbow) is expected to begin baseball activities within the next week, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Hill underwent surgery on his left elbow in October, and he's not expected to be cleared for game action until either June or July. Per Park, the 40-year-old southpaw is aiming for a return in early June if all goes according to plan.
Hill (elbow) signed with the Twins on Tuesday. Hill will make $3 million on a one-year deal, with the potential for an additional $9.5 million in performance bonuses, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. The veteran lefty, who will turn 40 prior to Opening Day, underwent elbow surgery in late October and won't be ready to pitch until June or July, but the Twins have good reason to believe that he'll be a valuable member of the rotation down the stretch. While he hasn't made more than 25 starts in a season since 2007, his performances have remained quite strong, as he finished the 2019 campaign with a 2.45 ERA and a 29.8 percent strikeout rate in 13 starts for the Dodgers.
