Rich Hill has had a rough spring. Despite pitching 3.2 shutout innings on Tuesday, the same flaws unfolded.

Hill lowered his ERA to 7.27, but walked three Cincinnati Reds, including two on four pitches.

I explained the other day that Hill’s struggles are of minimal concern, but at some point you want to see improvement. The high spring ERA is nothing new; in fact, poor starts are the norm for Hill. But the Dodgers will hope the walks don’t pour over into the regular season.
