Twins' Rich Hill: Doesn't expect to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Twins' Rich Hill: Remains on track for June return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Twins' Rich Hill: Taking part in fielding drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Twins' Rich Hill: To begin baseball activities soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Twins' Rich Hill: Signs with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rich Hill: Won't be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (elbow) underwent surgery in late October and won't be ready to pitch until June or July, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Injuries have limited Hill's availability over the past several years, and he will be forced to miss most of the first half of 2020 after undergoing primary and revision surgery in late October. The 39-year-old was effective last season with his limited availability, recording a 2.45 ERA with a 72:18 K:BB over 58.2 innings pitched. The southpaw has expressed interest in returning to the Dodgers, but his status in free agency will likely be linked to his recovery status.

Dodgers' Rich Hill: Tabbed for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Hill will start Game 4 of the NLDS should it be necessary, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hill won't be cleared for a full workload, as Roberts indicated the lefty would be expected to throw about four innings. The veteran covered three innings during his final outing of the regular season Sunday, so it's no surprise he'd be on a pitch count. Game 4 is scheduled for Monday, so Hill could also make a brief appearance out of the bullpen Thursday or Friday.

September 29, 2019 11:20 PM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: Looks good in abbreviated start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill pitched three scoreless innings and let up just one hit while striking out four and walking two in the Dodgers' 9-0 win over the Giants on Sunday. Hill did not factor into the decision.

Hill ended the regular season on a high note as the veteran left-hander pitched five scoreless innings and had nine strikeouts over two outings. Hill has decent playoff experience and should line up as the team's fourth starter for their championship run. The 39-year-old finishes the regular season with a 2.45 ERA and a 72:18 K:BB through 58.2 innings this season.

Dodgers' Rich Hill: Feels good after bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) tossed an encouraging bullpen session Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Manager Dave Roberts described the bullpen session as "electric" and indicated that Hill will start Sunday as planned with a target of three innings. Should the southpaw emerge from that outing without suffering any setbacks, he has an excellent chance of making the postseason roster. If that happens, Hill could start a potential fourth game in the NLDS, though he would be on a limited pitch count.

Dodgers' Rich Hill: Slated for three innings Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) is expected to pitch three innings and make around 45 pitches against the Giants on Sunday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hill threw a strong two-inning outing against the Padres on Tuesday, striking out five and holding San Diego hitless and scoreless over two innings. Despite moments during which Hill appeared to be in physical pain on the mound and while covering first base, the 39-year-old made it through the outing without suffering any setbacks and even logged a double in his only plate appearance. While it was a positive step in Hill's quest to make the National League Division Series roster as a potential Game 4 starter, he'll need to pass one more test Sunday to prove he's physically capable of contributing in the postseason.

Dodgers' Rich Hill: Looks sharp in abbreviated start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill threw two innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Tuesday, striking out five and walking two while giving up no hits as the Dodgers eventually prevailed 6-3.

The Dodgers gave Hill two innings in his first appearance back from the injured list with a knee injury, and he looked sharp in striking out five of the seven batters he faced. Health is always the question mark with Hill, but the 39-year-old has performed when he's been on the field this season with a 2.59 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 12 starts.

September 21, 2019 08:56 AM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) is expected to pitch the first two innings of Tuesday's game against the Padres, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Hill tossed a successful bullpen session Friday, and he's now in line to return to game action early next week. He's pitched in just one big-league game since mid-June, tossing 0.2 innings Sept. 12 against Baltimore.

September 21, 2019 10:16 AM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: Fares well in side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) threw a successful 17-pitch bullpen session Friday and is expected to pitch Tuesday against San Diego, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hill has been wearing a brace on his left knee while throwing, and he's felt great so far, per DiGiovanna. Assuming he feels strong over the next few days, the veteran southpaw should be available out of the bullpen for Tuesday's matchup with the Padres.

September 18, 2019 11:52 AM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: Likely to pitch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) will face live hitters Friday and hopes to return to game action as a reliever Tuesday against the Padres, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Hill's MRI results showed no structural damage to his strained left knee, opening the door for the southpaw to continue pitching as long as he is able to tolerate pain. Hill wore a brace and threw a 22-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, so he is clearly determined to do whatever it takes to be ready for the postseason. Should his live session go well Friday, Hill would likely make a one- or two-inning appearance Tuesday before potentially building up his pitch count in a starting role in the regular-season finale Sept. 29 in San Francisco.

Dodgers' Rich Hill: No structural damage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill's MRI on his left knee did not reveal any structural damage and it will be a matter of pain tolerance going forward, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

He threw a bullpen session Tuesday after getting the results of his MRI. Hill is trying to return before the end of the season in an attempt to win a spot on the playoff roster.

Dodgers' Rich Hill: Throws off mound Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) was spotted throwing off the bullpen mound Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Hill tested out his knee during Tuesday's bullpen session, as despite suffering a left MCL strain, he has his sights set on pitching again this season. The next step in his rehab should be determined after his latest throwing session.

September 16, 2019 11:56 AM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: Hopes to pitch from mound Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) is planning to throw off a mound Tuesday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hill is in a race against time to return to game action before the playoffs, though he suffered a similar knee injury in spring training and was sidelined for multiple weeks. For what it's worth, Hill suggested that he may be able to continue pitching immediately with a brace and a modified delivery, though the Dodgers are certain to quell any such discussion until reviewing the results of his MRI set for Monday.

September 15, 2019 11:16 AM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: Determined to return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) threw on flat ground Saturday and suggested that a change in his foot placement could allow him to continue pitching this season, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Hill exited Thursday's start after two-thirds of an inning with a strained left MCL but was out playing catch and throwing from a windup in New York on Saturday. He wore the brace that helped him get through his first three starts while recovering from the same injury early in the season and made an adjustment to his delivery to put less stress on his ailing knee. Despite Hill's admirable determination to do whatever it takes to return to the mound -- either as a reliever or a starter -- before the end of the season, manager Dave Roberts was less enthused, indicating that he would adhere to the results of Hill's MRI set for Monday, along with the advice of the medical and training staff, to determine his status moving forward.

September 14, 2019 03:44 PM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: Plays catch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) played catch on the field prior to Saturday's game, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

This is an encouraging sign after Hill left Thursday's game -- his first game back from a forearm injury -- with left knee discomfort. His preliminary diagnosis was a left MCL strain. The Dodgers will have Hill undergo an MRI on Monday to get a better read on the issue.

September 13, 2019 04:24 PM
Dodgers' Rich Hill: MRI set for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill will undergo an MRI on his left knee Monday in Los Angeles, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Hill was diagnosed with a left MCL strain after leaving Thursday's start against the Orioles, which was his first outing in nearly three months after dealing with a forearm strain. The MRI should help determine the severity of the injury and provide a timetable for his return, though his status for the rest of the season -- including the playoffs -- is already in jeopardy.
