Pirates' Rich Hill: Sharp through two spring outings
Hill has allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks while striking out four across five innings of Grapefruit League action.
Hill signed a one-year deal with the Pirates over the winter and was brought on in part to mentor the team's young starting staff. However, so long as he is healthy, Hill should be a consistent member of the rotation. He's looked fairly sharp early in camp and will be looking to improve on the 4.27 ERA and 1.30 WHIP that he posted across 124.1 innings in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Rich Hill: Gets one-year deal from Pirates
Hill signed a one-year, $8 million contract with the Pirates on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Hill is coming off a season with the Red Sox which saw him put up a 4.27 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 109 strikeouts over 124.1 innings covering 26 starts. He'll turn 43 in March but has remained mostly effective in recent years, albeit with a drop in strikeout rate. Hill will be a candidate to be traded to a contender at the deadline if he's healthy and pitching well.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: Quality start to wrap up 2022
Hill pitched six innings, surrendering three runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out six in Monday's win over the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.
Hill gave up a solo home run to Wander Franco in the top of the first inning before Manuel Margot took him deep for a two-run shot in the bottom of the fourth frame after an error extended the inning. The homers accounted for all the damage against him in the contest and the left-hander notched his second consecutive quality start. Hill will finish his season with a 4.27 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 109 strikeouts over 124.1 frames in 26 starts.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: Fans nine in six shutout innings
Hill (8-7) earned the win Wednesday, allowing no runs on five hits and one walk with nine strikeouts over six innings against the Orioles.
The 42-year-old turned back the clock Wednesday as he fired six masterful innings. His nine punchouts were his second highest of the season, and the quality start his first since Aug. 27. The strong outing lowered Hill's ERA to 4.41 on the season, which would be his highest since 2013. He lines up to face Tampa Bay next week in his final start of the season.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: No-decision Friday
Hill didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Yankees, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out four.
The 42-year-old lefty lasted five innings for only the second time in five September outings, and he's coughed up at least four runs in four of those. Hill's 6.75 ERA and 1.72 WHIP on the month suggest he has very little left in the tank right now, and if he does return for a 19th MLB campaign in 2023, it seems highly unlikely he'll be asked to fill a traditional starting role....

Red Sox's Rich Hill: Allows four runs in loss
Hill (7-7) took the loss against the Royals on Saturday, allowing four runs on eight hits while striking out four batters and walking none over 4.2 innings.
Hill had a rough day on the mound, tossing 58 of 81 pitches for strikes across 4.2 frames and allowing four runs to score, all of which came via RBI singles or doubles. This has been a tough month for the veteran, who has allowed 13 earned runs across 17.2 innings for a 6.62 ERA. Saturday's outing raised his season ERA to 4.70.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: Fires five scoreless innings
Hill (7-6) allowed two hits and three walks over five scoreless innings Sunday, striking out seven and earning a win over Baltimore.
Hill let just one Oriole reach scoring position during his dominant victory. Since his last win Aug. 27, the veteran southpaw had been tagged for nine runs over eight frames in two appearances. However, with the standout performance Sunday, he lowered his ERA to 4.56 alongside an 86:33 K:BB across 22 starts this season. Hill is expected to face the Royals at home next week.... See More ...

Red Sox's Rich Hill: Knocked around in loss
Hill (6-6) took the loss Tuesday in Tampa Bay, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out three in four innings.
Randy Arozarena deposited an 0-2 pitch into the seats for a three-run homer in the first inning against Hill to get the scoring started for the Rays. In the third, Harold Ramirez plated two runs with a single to put Tampa Bay up 5-2. Ten of the 20 batters Hill faced reached safely and the 42-year-old was removed after four innings with only 64 pitches thrown. He's allowed four runs or more in four of his last six starts and has a 6.33 ERA and 1.48 ERA in 27 innings in that span.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: Walks four in no-decision
Hill pitched four-plus innings in a no-decision against Texas on Thursday. He allowed four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two batters.
Hill pitched his best game of the season his previous time out, striking out 11 batters over seven scoreless innings against Tampa Bay. He couldn't carry over that momentum, however, as he tied a season high with four walks and was lifted after allowing the first three batters he faced in the fifth frame to reach base. Hill hasn't had many big blowups this season, but he's allowed at least four runs in six of his 20 outings, leading to a mediocre 4.52 ERA for the year. He no longer strikes out batters on a consistent basis, further dampening his value in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: Dominant in win
Hill (6-5) earned the win Saturday, allowing zero runs on three hits and one walk over seven innings in a 5-1 win over the Rays. He struck out 11.
Hill did not allow an extra-base hit in his outstanding performance against the Rays. The lefty has had a tough stretch following his return from a knee injury, recording a 7.50 ERA and allowing 16 hits over 12 innings in the three starts prior to this contest. The 42-year-old veteran currently has his highest ERA (4.32) since 2013 when he recorded a 6.28 ERA in 38.2 innings as a reliever.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: Likely to piggyback Bello
Red Sox manager Alex Cora hinted that Hill will piggyback starter Brayan Bello in Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Boston has already locked in Kutter Crawford and Michael Wacha to start Thursday's series finale and Friday's series opener versus Tampa Bay, respectively, so unless Hill is being pushed to the back of the pitching schedule, Wednesday marks the most logical day for him to get some innings. Bello likely won't be serving as a traditional opener after building up to 4.1 innings in his most recent rehab start, but Hill could still have better odds than usual of factoring into any decision even if he has a lighter workload than normal....

Red Sox's Rich Hill: Next start coming Saturday
Hill is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Rays at Fenway Park, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Manager Alex Cora had previously suggested that Hill could piggyback Brayan Bello in the latter's start Wednesday against the Blue Jays, but Hill may only be available in relief in an emergency now that he's been confirmed to make his next start this weekend. When he takes the mound Saturday, Hill will be pitching on nine days' rest after having made his previous start Aug. 17 in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rich Hill: Earns road win
Hill (5-5) earned the win Wednesday, allowing two runs on three hits and zero walks over five innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out four.
Hill surrendered a two-run homer to outfielder Bryan Reynolds with nobody out in the first inning, but he otherwise kept Pittsburgh off the board. The 42-year-old has been vastly better on the road with a 3.44 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP in 52.1 innings compared to a 6.82 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP in 30.1 innings at home. The lefty has not been built for longevity this season as he has pitched five innings or more just eight times in 18 starts.... See More ... See Less
