Hill rejoins Red Sox

Lefty Rich Hill has made it back to the Red Sox less than a year after undergoing Tommy John Surgery. Hill, the pride of Milton, Mass., will be activated by the Red Sox for tonight’s game in Chicago.

Justin Thomas will be taken off the roster.

If Hill can pitch for the Red Sox like he did last year, it could be a big boost for a bullpen that has struggled much of the season. Before injuring his elbow in 2011, Hill pitched nine times for the Red Sox, striking out 12 and not allowing a run over eight inning.

Good! I liked Rich Hill when he was with us, and I was disappointed for him when he got injured. And the BP still can use all the help it can get! I hope he does well! GO SOX!

The bullpen is getting into good shape. Congrats to Bard’s first win as a starter. I would have played Ryan Sweeney instead of Darnell despite facing a lefty last night. How wrong I was!
