Milton High's Rich Hill Likely Headed Elsewhere

Hill On The Hill For Sox
Boston-area native Rich Hill spent pieces of three seasons with the Red Sox, and as the Providence Journal's Brian MacPherson points out, was stellar in the few innings he actually pitched for the Carmine Hose (1.14 ERA in just 31 2/3 innings). But, Hill is looking for a major league deal and the Red Sox will probably only offer a minor-league option—if that. So, Hill will more than likely be a lefty specialist in someone else's bullpen in the 2013 season. It's a shame he couldn't stay healthy with Boston—there's nothing better than real homegrown talent succeeding at Fenway. Good luck, Rich.
