Hill Starting vs. Padres
Saturday, Sept. 3
The Dodgers announced Hill will start Saturday against San Diego.
Hill Traded Despite Lingering Injury
Despite his blister, Hill was traded along with outfielder Josh Reddick to the Dodgers on Aug. 1.
Hill has gone 10-3 with a 2.09 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 93 strikeouts in 82 innings pitched over 15 starts. While only one of those starts was as a member of the Dodgers, it's clear Hill will be a valuable member of the team's rotation.
