Red Sox Re-Acquire Left-Handed Pitcher Rich Hill

Back in 2010-12, left-hander Rich Hill pitched pretty effectively for the Red Sox. In fact, in 40 games, he went 2-0 with a 1.14 ERA. Yesterday, Boston signed the 35-year old to a minor league deal—which will likely land him (at least for now) at AAA Pawtucket. This year, the Long Island Duck (Atlantic League) made two starts and pitched 11 scoreless innings. The Great Red Sox Speculation Machine went into high gear after the singing—suggesting that by adding starting pitching "depth" with Hill, Joe Kelly could then move into the closer role. Who knows?
