Dodgers: Rich Hill Advancing to Next Step in Rehab Process

Big D. Mountain is setting up for his return.

Dodgers’ starting pitcher Rich Hill will be taking a significant step forward towards his return later this week.

Hill has been on the IL since late June after suffering a flexor strain injury that’s sidelined him for a large portion of this season.

There have been rumblings that Hill could return as a starter in time for the playoffs but whether or not that’s truly feasible is yet to be seen.

If he’s not starting, Hill could likely serve as a reinforcement in a bullpen that has caused some concern throughout the regular season.

Regardless of where he’ll eventually fill in, manager Dave Roberts was happy with the progress he’s seen out of the southpaw as of late.

Hill has been impressive when looking at his short sample size this season. In 10 games and 53 innings pitched, he’s posted a 2.55 ERA with a 1.113 WHIP.

If he’s able to stay healthy and make a return, he could be a very valuable asset available to Roberts as the postseason looms.

I’m currently a junior at Pomona College in Claremont, CA, and I have a passion for sports journalism. I grew up in the LA area and am a diehard fan of the Dodgers, Lakers, Rams, UCLA, Kings. My favorite Dodgers memory was watching Kershaw tear up after the team won the 2017 NLCS and advanced to the World Series for the first time in his career. After college, I plan on either pursuing a career as a sports journalist or working in sports law.
