Hill didn't factor into the decision Thursday against the Mariners after allowing four runs on six hits and a walk while fanning five across five innings. He also allowed two home runs.
Hill has given up a homer in four of his last six appearances and has also allowed at least four runs in back-to-back contests. The veteran owns a 4.91 ERA across three starts this month and is scheduled to take the mound against the Red Sox at home next week.
Hill did not factor in the decision against Baltimore on Saturday, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five.
The left-hander came into the contest having yielded two or fewer runs in eight straight outings, but that streak came to an end when Austin Wynns scorched Hill for a grand slam in the fifth inning. The veteran contributed to his own demise by issuing two walks and allowing a single prior to the long ball, and the start was his shortest since May 2. Hill still carries a solid 3.38 ERA on the season, and he's slated to make his next start at Seattle next week.
Hill (5-2) picked up the win in Saturday's 3-0 victory over the Rangers, allowing two hits and a walk over five scoreless innings. He struck out three.
The veteran southpaw has won two straight starts and four of his last five, and Hill extended his scoreless streak to 12 innings with this performance, dating back to the final two frames of his outing against the Royals on May 25. Since the beginning of May, Hill has a dazzling 0.68 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 39:13 K:BB through 39.2 innings.
Hill (4-2) picked up the win in Monday's 3-1 victory over the Yankees, allowing three hits and two walks over five scoreless innings. He struck out two.
The veteran lefty wasn't in peak form, tossing 37 of 56 pitches for strikes before exiting and falling well short of the 13 punchouts he racked up in his last start, but Hill still got the job done against a reeling New York offense. He'll take a 3.32 ERA and 60:19 K:BB through 59 innings into his next outing.
Hill (3-2) took the loss Tuesday as the Rays were downed 2-1 by the Royals, giving up two runs on six hits over eight innings. He struck out a season-high 13 without walking a batter.
It's the second time this year the veteran southpaw has fanned double-digit batters, and Hill fired 74 of 99 pitches for strikes in an impressive outing marred by a lack of run support. He'll take a 3.63 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 58:17 K:BB through 52 innings into his next start.
Hill (3-1) allowed one earned run on two hits and four walks while striking out four across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Orioles.
Hill put together another strong performance and has now allowed only three earned runs across his last 27.2 innings of work. His four walks indicate some shakiness, though he still managed to record 56 strikes on 90 total pitches. He also began 13 of the 23 batters he faced with a strike. For the season, Hill has a 3.89 ERA with a 45:17 K:BB across 44 frames. He lines up to start next week against the Royals.
Hill (2-1) earned the win Thursday against the Yankees after tossing 6.2 scoreless innings, giving up three hits and three walks while fanning nine.
Hill has posted three straight scoreless appearances after beginning the season on a down note, and he owns a 9.8 K/9 with two quality starts over that three-game stretch. Hill's next start is scheduled to come next week on the road against the Orioles.
Hill held Oakland scoreless over six innings but did not factor in the decision Friday. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out four.
The left-hander was at the top of his game, and Hill has dominated Oakland hitters this season, hurling a combined 12 innings and allowing only two runs while striking out 14. Unfortunately, he has an 0-1 record against the team to show for it. After registering an unsightly 8.82 ERA through his first four outings, Hill has turned things around by allowing only two earned runs across 15 innings covering his past three appearances. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to come against the Yankees at home next week.
Hill allowed one hit and a walk over three scoreless innings during Sunday's win over Houston. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Hill was expected to have a short outing Sunday, and he made the most of it. He issued a walk in the first inning and allowed a hit in the second but no Astro made it into scoring position. The veteran lefty lowered his season ERA to 6.39 across 25.1 innings. Hill is expected to take the mound in Oakland next weekend.
The Rays plan to use Michael Wacha in long relief once Hill exits his start Sunday against the Astros, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Hill will be pitching on five days' rest, with his placement on the COVID-19 injured list earlier this weekend due to vaccine-related side effects not pushing him off his regular turn in the rotation. That said, the fact that the Rays are having Wacha -- who worked five innings in his last start Tuesday -- on hand in relief could hint that Hill may not be asked to work especially deep into Sunday's game. Manager Kevin Cash hasn't suggested that a tandem-start arrangement between Hill and Wacha is in the forecast, so Hill remains the safer bet of the two to cover the majority of the innings.
Hill (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Hill was dealing with side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine Friday, but he was able to return from the injured list after just one day. The southpaw will likely be available to make his next start, and he tentatively lines up to start Sunday. Right-hander Trevor Richards was sent down in a corresponding move.
Hill was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday while experiencing side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
The move creates some roster space for the Rays while the veteran southpaw manages the side effects, and he can be activated within a day or two if he's feeling better. Hill was tentatively scheduled to start Sunday and could still make his regular turn through the rotation.
Hill (1-1) took the loss Monday, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks over six innings as the Rays fell 2-1 to the A's. He struck out 10.
The veteran lefty made only one real mistake, but Sean Murphy drove it into the seats in the fourth inning for a two-run homer. Hill still came through with his best start, and first quality start, of the season as he tossed 93 pitches (59 strikes), but he'll still carry a 7.25 ERA and 24:7 K:BB through 22.1 innings into his next outing Saturday at home against the Astros.
Hill allowed four runs on four hits and a walk over two innings in a no-decision against Kansas City on Tuesday. He struck out one.
The veteran southpaw made it through his first two frames unscathed, but he exited in the third after the first five Royals reached base, resulting in four runs crossing the plate. Hill has given up exactly four runs in each of his four starts this season, and he's pitched past the fifth inning only once, with Tuesday's outing his shortest of the campaign thus far. His ERA now stands at an inflated 8.82, though he has yet to be tagged with a loss. Hill will strive for a better outcome when he takes on Oakland at home Monday.
Hill allowed four earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out a pair over 4.1 innings Thursday. He did not factor in the decision in the loss to the Rangers.
Hill surrendered a pair of home runs to Nick Solak and Charlie Culberson causing the bulk of his damage. Hill has allowed four runs in each of his three starts. The veteran southpaw was less effective in striking out batters Thursday, with only two punchouts. He is scheduled for a date with the Royals next week.
Hill (1-0) allowed four runs on four hits over six innings Friday, striking out seven and earning a win over the Yankees.
While his line doesn't look terribly impressive, the only damage on Hill came during a four-run fourth for the Yankees that included a two-run Aaron Hicks homer. Sandwiched around that nightmare inning were five perfect frames with five punchouts. The 41-year-old lefty will carry a 7.20 ERA into Wednesday's home contest against Texas.
Hill allowed four earned runs on five hits and two walks across four innings in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday. He struck out four and did not factor into the decision.
The veteran left-hander worked up to 71 pitches in his planned tandem start with Chris Archer and gave up a run apiece in each of his four frames. Hill was able to get 52 of his offerings into the strike zone, but his penchant for allowing hard contact -- he surrendered a pair of doubles and a solo home run -- helped lead to the relatively poor outing. Adam Berry of MLB.com reports Hill is slated to make a conventional start in his second turn through the rotation, which currently lines up for either Friday or Saturday against the dangerous Yankees.
Hill, who threw 63 pitches in a Grapefruit League win over the Orioles on Monday, will make his first regular-season start Saturday against the Marlins but work in tandem with Chris Archer, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Hill allowed three earned runs on five hits, two walks and a hit batsman during Monday's outing, but he came away pleased after seeing an increase in his fastball velocity and getting some swings and misses on his curve as well during his five frames. The veteran southpaw and Archer are likely to be separated and make conventional starts their second turns through the rotation according to manager Kevin Cash, but the tandem arrangement for Saturday's game could certainly affect Hill's ability to pitch long enough to qualify for a potential win.
Hill allowed three earned runs on five hits over 2.2 innings in a Grapefruit League loss to the Red Sox on Friday. He struck out three.
The left-hander stretched out to 58 pitches while getting tagged for multiple earned runs for the second time in three spring starts. Despite some of the struggles, Hill has managed to avoid the long ball thus far through 6.2 Grapefruit League innings, continuing his career-long trend of doing a good job keeping the ball in the park. He lines up for at least one more start before the regular season commences.
Hill fired three scoreless innings in a Grapefruit League loss to the Twins on Saturday, allowing just a hit and a walk.
About the only blemish on Hill's performance was his failure to record a strikeout, but otherwise, the left-hander turned in a polar-opposite effort of what was a rough Grapefruit League debut on March 5. Adam Berry of MLB.com reports Hill threw 23 of 36 pitches for strikes and actually outpaced his planned two-inning workload due to his level of efficiency. "Just really the conviction behind every pitch, that was the biggest difference," Hill said. "Getting on top of the ball, throwing the ball downhill, committing to the pitch and the task at hand right there."
