A new pitcher on the Hill

Just when we thought the Red Sox were done with roster moves, a new pitcher has arrived in Seattle, one with local ties.

His name is Rich Hill, and he is a left-handed pitcher from Milton, Mass. Hill was signed by the Sox as a Minor League free agent on June 1, and went 3-1 with a 3.74 ERA in 19 games — six starts — for Triple-A Pawtucket.

At one time, Hill was a pitcher the Chicago Cubs thought highly of. In 2007, he made 32 starts, going 11-8 with a 3.92 ERA.

But a torn labrum and subsequent surgery served as a prolonged road block. Hill has pitched just 19 games in the Majors since ’07. He is 30 years old.
