Dodgers News: Rich Hill Makes First Rehab Appearance in Rancho

After hitting the 10-day disabled list once again due to a recurring blister issue on the middle finger his left hand, Rich Hill was finally able to make his first rehab appearance.

On Thursday night, Rich Hill took the mound for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.

Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt announced that Hill would be pitching around four innings or 60 pitches.

Well things did not go as planned as Rich Hill was only able to get through 2/3 of his first inning.

J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group covered the entire night for Rich Hill.

Not even getting through one inning was disastrous enough, but Hill coming out gave us the fear that the blister was not healed at all and he would need even more time on the disabled list.

Well the good news is that Hill is not hurt at all. They took him out and he threw 31 more pitches in the bullpen to complete his 60 pitches on the night.

Another outing or two with a healthy finger and Rich Hill could be back in the Dodger rotation.
