Rich Hill was placed on the 10-day disabled list last Thursday. A week later, he’s scheduled to throw.

Hill hit the DL as a precautionary measure resulting from his blister problems. Since last season, Hill has bounced back and forth from the DL with blisters. The team feared he was developing one on his left hand’s middle finger, and the safe call was to skip his next start.

Alex Wood is replacing him Monday versus the Cubs.

Hill is scheduled to pitch Sunday against Arizona. He’ll need to make it out of his Thursday bullpen session without any roadblocks to ensure that happens.

Dave Roberts said it “didn’t make sense” for Hill to travel with the team to Chicago, so he’ll rejoin the clubhouse when the team returns to Los Angeles Friday.

In his lone appearance this season, Hill threw five innings and allowed one run on two hits.
