      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Facing extended absence

      Rich Hill (forearm) said it will likely be 3-to-4 weeks before he can resume throwing, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.The lefty was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday after leaving Wednesday's start with what has since been diagnosed as a flexor tendon strain. He received an injection to help facilitate the healing process. That process will be a long one, and after the shutdown period, Hill will likely require an additional five or six weeks to ramp up before potentially rejoining the major-league team. Hill himself seemed unsure about his chances of pitching again this season, saying he feels it's "still a possibility."

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Dealing with flexor strain

      Rich Hill was diagnosed with a flexor strain, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.Hill exited Wednesday's game due to forearm tightness, and a subsequent MRI revealed the veteran southpaw is dealing with a flexor strain. He had a PRP injection Thursday to help the healing. While the issue isn't expected to require surgery, per Vassegh, Hill likely won't be able to resume throwing for 3-to-4 weeks. He's still hoping to pitch again this season, though he has a lengthy recovery process ahead of him.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Lands on IL

      Rich Hill (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.This was expected after Hill exited Wednesday's game with a left forearm strain. He's expected to undergo an MRI on Thursday to determine the severity of the strain, at which point a timetable for his return will hopefully come into focus. JT Chargois was summoned from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding roster move.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Headed for IL

      Manager Dave Roberts said the Los Angeles Dodgers plan to place Rich Hill (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, ESPN.com reports.Hill lasted just one inning in his start Wednesday against the Giants, tossing a perfect 15-pitch frame before departing with what the Dodgers labeled as a left forearm discomfort. An injury of that nature is often more than a day-to-day concern, so it's no surprise that Los Angeles plans to shelve him for at least the next week and a half. Hill is slated to undergo an MRI later Thursday, so more clarity regarding the severity of his forearm strain along with a protected timeline for his return should be known once his test results are available. Julio Urias was already slated to enter the rotation Thursday to build in an extra rest for the Dodgers' other four starters, so he now looks poised to replace Hill for at least a couple turns.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Makes early exit Wednesday

      Rich Hill was removed from Wednesday's start versus the Giants with an apparent injury, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.Hill took the mound for the second inning but was visited by the athletic trainer and exited the game before throwing another pitch. The veteran left-hander had two strikeouts and threw 11 of his 15 pitches for strikes with normal velocity during a scoreless first inning. Therefore, it's unclear what injury he's dealing with, though it's worth noting he's had extensive blister issues in the past.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Squeaks out third win

      Rich Hill (3-1) picked up the win Saturday in a 7-2 victory over the Giants, allowing two runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings while striking out six.The southpaw wasn't particularly efficient, needing 94 pitches (59 strikes) to record his 15 outs, and after he escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the fifth inning Hill hit the showers with the score tied 2-2 -- only for the Los Angeles Dodgers to take the lead for good in the top of the sixth while he was still the pitcher of record. He'll carry a 2.40 ERA and 52:12 K:BB through 45 innings into his next start Friday, at home against the Cubs.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Throws another quality start

      Rich Hill pitched well but did not factor into the decision against the Mets on Tuesday, tossing six innings and allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out six.The crafty veteran was on his game most of the night, throwing 76 of his 104 pitches for strikes, but was matched by an effective outing from fellow lefty Steven Matz. Since a subpar appearance against Washington on May 9, Hill has thrown three straight quality starts, giving up only three runs while striking out 23 batters in 18 innings in that stretch. He'll carry a 2.73 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 37:6 K:BB into his next scheduled start against Philadelphia on Sunday.
