Hill is pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays, where new GM Alex Anthopoulos and AGM Dana Brown, both formerly of the Nationals/Expos organization, happily scooped Hill up off the scrap heap for a minor league deal back in January.
In four starts and 20 and 2/3 innings, Hill displayed the impressive skill set that made him a legitimate #2 starter in 2007. He pounded the strike zone, allowing just 4 walks, and generated ground balls on 49.3% of balls in play. He's mixing in a change-up more and throwing the sinker a bit less, but the results are similar.
I'll always be rooting for Hill because he was such a happy surprise in 2007, and also because he was hosed so badly by the team after he won in arbitration and the team cut him just to save a couple hundred thousand, despite the fact that Hill is exactly the kind of low-risk, high-reward veteran a team like the Nationals should be targeting.
