Red Sox add Rich Hill


As first reported by Dan Hoard on Twitter, the Red Sox have signed 30-year-old lefty Rich Hill to a minor-league contract. The Milton, Massachusetts native has pitched in the major leagues for the Cubs and the Orioles, and was recently released by St. Louis after struggling with their Triple-A club. The Cubs' 4th-round pick in 2002, Hill made his big-league debut in 2005 and pitched in parts of four seasons for Chicago before going to Baltimore for 2009. He will join the PawSox bullpen, which will be a man short as TJ Large was placed on the disabled list Wednesday.

For his career, Hill is 21-20 with an ERA of 4.82. He enjoyed his best season in 2007, going 11-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 32 starts. He ranked fifth in the NL in batting average against (.235) and strikeouts (183).
