      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Starts throwing program

      Rich Hill (forearm) began a throwing program Thursday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.The veteran left-hander, who has been on the shelf since June 20 with a flexor tendon strain, made 25 throws from 45 feet and reported no issues afterwards. Hill is expected to extend his throwing out to 60 feet over the next two weeks before ramping things up from there. If all goes well, Hill is hoping to return sometime in September.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Eyeing September return

      Rich Hill (forearm) is set to resume throwing Thursday in Philadelphia and is targeting a September return, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.As expected, Hill will start throwing within the next week, and he'll toss from 60 feet for the next two weeks before progressing any further. He's been on the 10-day injured list since June 20 due to a left forearm strain, though if all goes according to plan, it appears the southpaw will take the mound again this season for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: To resume throwing next week

      Rich Hill (forearm) will resume throwing next week, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.Hill expected to have to wait 3-to-4 weeks to resume throwing after he landed on the injured list June 20, and he appears to be right in line with that estimate. His ability to return to the mound at any point this season has been in question since he suffered a flexor tendon strain, but he was reportedly optimistic Friday.

      Dodgers' Rich Hill: Shifts to 60-day injured list

      Rich Hill (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.The move has little effect on Hill's recovery timeline, as he's still weeks away from resuming throwing after suffering a flexor tendon strain. It's not clear that he'll even be able to pitch again this season. The transaction clears a spot on the Los Angeles Dodgers' 40-man roster for Casey Sadler, acquired in a trade from the Rays in a corresponding move.

      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.
