Twins' Rich Hill: Impressive in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (2-2) was charged with the loss against the Cubs on Friday, allowing just one run on three hits and a pair of walks while striking out five across seven innings.

Hill got off to a tough first inning but managed to only allow one run to score on an RBI single by Willson Contreras. The southpaw blanked Chicago the rest of the way during his longest outing of the season, but unfortunately, the lone run he surrendered was enough to land him the loss. Hill, who was coming off a season-high seven strikeouts, has now allowed only five runs across his last 17 innings -- striking out 17 and walking only four during that span. The 40-year-old will take the mound next Wednesday against Detroit.

Twins' Rich Hill: Seven strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (2-1) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven across five earnings to earn the win Saturday against Cleveland.

Hill held Cleveland scoreless in four of the five innings he pitched, the only blemish coming in the fourth frame. He struck out a season-best seven batters, and he worked five innings for his second consecutive start. Hill's results were a bit uneven early on, but he has now allowed only four runs across his last 10 innings -- striking out 12 and walking only two. He'll look to keep things going in his next turn through the rotation, currently projected to come Friday against the Cubs.

Twins' Rich Hill: Five solid innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five across five innings Sunday against the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision.

Hill allowed a run in each of the first two innings, but settled in from there to hold the Tigers scoreless in his last three frames. He generated only five swinging strikes, but still managed to rack up five punchouts on the strength of 19 called strikes on a total of 77 pitches. Hill has worked five innings in three of his five starts this season, and he's now given up more than two runs on only one occasion. He's currently projected to draw his next start Sunday against Cleveland.

Twins' Rich Hill: No-decision Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill didn't factor into the decision in Monday's contest between the Twins and the White Sox. He allowed two runs on three hits and four walks while fanning two across 3.1 innings.

Hill is yet to pitch past the fifth inning this season, and the results haven't been encouraging -- he has registered more walks than strikeouts in two of his last three outings. He owns a 10:10 K:BB and 1.44 WHIP in 16 innings across four starts.

Twins' Rich Hill: Settles for no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill hurled five innings against Cleveland on Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

Hill was shaky in the first inning, giving up a run on a trio of singles and a pair of stolen bases. However, he turned things around thereafter, holding Cleveland scoreless on a pair of walks and a single over the next four frames. The southpaw ended his outing on a high note, striking out the side in the fifth inning before he was lifted. Hill threw 78 pitches in the performance, a positive sign after he tossed only 53 his last time out. The 40-year-old is still working his way back from an early-season bout of shoulder fatigue, but he could be given a longer leash moving forward if he feels good the next few days. He is next scheduled to pitch Sunday in a road contest against Detroit.

Twins' Rich Hill: Struggles in return from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (1-1) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out one over 2.2 innings in a loss to the Brewers on Wednesday.

Shoulder fatigue pushed Hill to the injured list after one start. The Twins were hoping he could give them some length despite the missed time. "We're hoping he goes out and pitches like he normally would and gets us into the middle of the game," manager Rocco Baldelli told the Minneapolis Star Tribune prior to Wednesday's contest, "and hopefully we can win the game because he's pitched well and gotten us to that point." As it turned out, Hill couldn't get out of the third and was pulled after 53 pitches, although there has been no mention of a setback with the shoulder. The lefty lines up for road starts in Cleveland and Detroit next week.

Twins' Rich Hill: Set to return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins activated Hill (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list and will have him start Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hill ended up missing three turns through the Minnesota rotation due to left shoulder fatigue, but the Twins will give him the green light to return after he checked out fine during a 60-pitch bullpen session over the weekend. The southpaw's only start this season came back on July 29, when he rolled to a win over the Cardinals while tossing five scoreless frames.

Twins' Rich Hill: May start vs. Milwaukee this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) is a candidate to return from the 10-day injured list to start at some point during the Twins' three-game home series against the Brewers, which begins Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Hill is lobbying to return to the rotation after telling the Twins' staff that his sore left shoulder responded well to the 60-pitch simulated game he completed Friday at the organization's alternate training site in St. Paul. The Twins likely wouldn't be inclined to bring Hill back from the IL on less than four days' rest, so Wednesday or Thursday are probably more realistic target dates for his return to the rotation than Tuesday. While Hill and Homer Bailey (biceps) have both been on the shelf, the Twins haven't appointed a new pitcher to the rotation, instead opting for bullpen games when a fifth starter has been needed.

Twins' Rich Hill: Throws another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) threw a 60-pitch bullpen session Friday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Hill threw five scoreless innings in his lone start of the year before landing on the injured list with shoulder soreness. The fact that he's already throwing 60 pitches seems to suggest that he'll be back soon, something he's reportedly pushing for.

Twins' Rich Hill: Tosses bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Everything went well during Tuesday's BP session, clearing the way for Hill to face live hitters during Minnesota's upcoming homestand, which begins Friday against the Royals. The veteran left-hander's return date should come into focus following his live BP session.

Twins' Rich Hill: Could return next weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) could be available for next weekend's series against the Royals, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The veteran southpaw resumed throwing Friday and is expected to throw a bullpen session during the upcoming three-game series in Milwaukee, which begins Monday. Hill landed on the injured list with shoulder fatigue and mid-back soreness last Monday, but it appears he may not be spending too much time on the shelf.

Twins' Rich Hill: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) returned to the team Friday and is going through his throwing progression, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hill has been sidelined since Monday with shoulder fatigue, but he appears to be on the right track toward a return as he was able to throw for the first time Friday. A timeline for the southpaw's return to game action hasn't been announced, but he could presumably return sometime next week if all goes well with his throwing plan.

Twins' Rich Hill: No bullpens until at least Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) hasn't thrown a bullpen session since his last start back on July 29 and won't throw one until Friday at the earliest, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Hill will get a long rest between his first two starts of the year, as he landed on the 10-day injured list due to shoulder fatigue Monday. He expects to be able to pitch sometime next week, though the Twins have yet to announce a timeline for his return.

Twins' Rich Hill: Lands on IL with shoulder fatigue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with shoulder fatigue, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

He will be able to return early next week. Manager Rocco Baldelli said that because the roster size drops from 30 to 28 players soon, the team wanted to make this move now to maintain its pitching depth, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. He will continue to throw while on the IL, but he would not have been ready to make a start during this weekend's series in Kansas City. With Jake Odorizzi (back) joining the rotation this weekend, he can slot in for Hill's turn and Lewis Thorpe could conceivably make one more start before potentially being replaced by Hill next week.

Twins' Rich Hill: Battling fatigue and back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill is battling both fatigue and mid-back soreness, which explains why he won't start any of the Twins' next four games, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Hill will get an extended rest following his first start of the season, which should help the frequently-injured veteran stay healthy down the stretch after he spent much of the year recovering from elbow surgery. It's certainly positive news that he isn't dealing with any arm-related issues, and the back and fatigue problems don't appear to be particularly worrisome, as he was able to play catch Monday. It remains unclear when he'll next take the mound, however.

August 3, 2020 05:28 PM
Twins' Rich Hill: Next start unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill isn't scheduled to start any of the Twins' next four games, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

There haven't been any indications that the oft-injured lefty is dealing with yet another ailment, but he'll now have a minimum of eight days' rest between his first two starts of the year. It's possible that the Twins are simply treating the veteran very cautiously after he spent the first half of the calendar year recovering from October elbow surgery.

Twins' Rich Hill: Impressive in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (1-0) earned the win against St. Louis on Wednesday, completing five scoreless innings and allowing two hits and one walk while striking out two.

Hill was efficient in his five frames, throwing 41 of 68 pitches for strikes and limiting the Cardinals to a pair of singles and a walk. He racked up only two strikeouts, but fantasy managers who drafted Hill with the hope that he will thrive with his new team have to be pleased with his opening performance. The southpaw has averaged over a punchout per inning every season since 2011, so there's good reason to expect increased strikeouts moving forward. Hill's next scheduled start will come on the road against Pittsburgh on Monday.

Twins' Rich Hill: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill threw a bullpen session Saturday without any issues, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Hill was scratched from Saturday's start for an undisclosed reason, but manager Rocco Baldelli said Friday that the move was made to give the 40-year-old a few extra days of rest. The Twins initially planned to start Hill in the fifth game, and Baldelli determined that it was best to keep him on the team's initial schedule rather than rushing him out for the second game of the year. His bullpen Saturday is more evidence his health isn't an issue despite the last-second change of plans.

Twins' Rich Hill: Slated to start fifth game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (undisclosed) is doing well and is scheduled to start Wednesday against the Cardinals, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hill was scratched from Saturday's start for an undisclosed reason, but manager Rocco Baldelli said Friday that the move was made to give the 40-year-old a few extra days of rest. The Twins initially planned to start Hill in the fifth game, and Baldelli determined that it was best to keep him on the team's initial schedule rather than rushing him out for the second game of the year. Hill recorded a 2.45 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over 13 starts with the Dodgers as he battled various injuries.

Twins' Rich Hill: Start pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill will not make his scheduled start Saturday and his Twins debut has been pushed back, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Randy Dobnak will start Saturday against the White Sox.

No reason was given for the change, but it would seem likely to be health related due to the sudden switch, and given Hill's extensive injury history.
