Hill was placed on the 10-day disabled list as a precautionary measure to avoid aggravating a blister. Hill has struggled with blisters over the past season, and that was the very reason he was on the DL when Los Angeles acquired him last summer.
The 10-day DL already exhibited its benefit with Hill’s quick return. His lone missed start came Monday, where Alex Wood filled in well against Chicago.
With Hill’s injury history, the Dodgers knew signing him to an extension was a risky move. But immediately after Hill was placed on the DL, Dave Roberts downplayed the significance of the injury. Roberts’ words proved true.
