Dodgers News: Rich Hill Transferred to the 60-Day IL

The Dodgers have reportedly transferred southpaw veteran Rich Hill to the 60-day IL to create a roster spot for RHP Casey Sadler who was acquired this morning from the Tampa Bay Rays.

I will be honest. This is absolutely terrible news for Rich Hill. After being placed on the IL with a flexor strain in late June, his placement entails that the earliest he can return is in late August. Even then that might be a stretch considering his age and mileage on his arm.

We all hope Rich turns this around and comes back to the playoff rotation and dominates like he always does. There is a good chance he does return considering who he is as a person: a fighter.

Hill was in the midst of a great year: 2.55 ERA, 28.1 K%, 5.5 BB%, and a great 3.16 DRA.
