Ex-Red Sox Hurler Rich Hill Signs Deal With Athletics
Left-handed starter Rich Hill—who had a magical run with the Red Sox last September—signed a free agent deal Friday with the Oakland Athletics. The 35-year old inked a one-year, $6 million deal to pitch at The Concrete Bunker On the Bay. Hill re-invented himself as a starter and—after beginning the year in the Nationals organization—hooked up for his second stint with the Red Sox. He went 2-1 with a 1.55 ERA in four starts for The Carmine Hose. Since the Red Sox are likely to add one or two starters to their already crowded (but not quality-laden) rotation, there was really no spot for Hill in Boston. We wish him the best of luck with The Boys Of Billy Beane!
