Rich Hill update
With Clayton Kershaw returning on Monday, all eyes are on Rich Hill and his recovery process from a knee injury that has sidelined him for the first few weeks of the season. Good news for the Dodgers, he threw a simulated game on Friday.
Hill threw another 15 pitches in bullpen. Said everything felt great, fastball, curve, sidearm curve. Brace held up fine. Minimal slippage. He said he’s ready for rehab start or MLB start.— Mike DiGiovanna (@MikeDiGiovanna) April 12, 2019
Though it’s still unclear on where, likely in the minors, it looks as if we can see Hill starting a game somewhere in the coming days.
Dave Roberts said Rich Hill will go out for a rehab start in five or six days.— Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick) April 12, 2019
- Corey Seager is back in the starting lineup after exiting yesterday’s game early with a hamstring contusion after being hit by a pitch
- Dave Roberts still hasn’t announced a starter for tomorrow. Dennis Santana is a candidate if he doesn’t pitch in relief tonight. If he pitches, tomorrow could be a call-up or a bullpen game
- Max Muncy injury update
Muncy hurt his right index finger yesterday on a Wong pop-up. He feels better today but they want to stay away from him today.— Alanna Rizzo (@alannarizzo) April 12, 2019
