The biggest name on the 2016 free agent pitching market was Rich Hill, conveniently it was right after his best season maybe ever in the big leagues. In 13 MLB seasons Rich Hill has started 30+ games in a season one time, so you knew going in he wasn't necessarily a sure fire signing. The Dodgers didn't want to let him walk and there were definitely some bidders for Rich Hill. The Dodgers dished out $48 million over 3 years for him at 36 years old and now it's about to bite them in the ass.
After just one start, Rich Hill is already headed for the 15 day DL. It's nothing serious, just a blister, but with Hill it is serious because this blister situation has plagued his career. Last season it was the same problem and I don't expect it to just go away. Some people are just injury prone, Rich Hill is one of those people, I thought that was clear by his 12 years in this league where he has battled some sort of injury. Rich Hill cashed out, so what does he care, it's the Dodgers front office on the hot seat. Another expensive contract on the payroll for at least three more years, when will the Dodgers front office finally learn. SMH
