The Dodgers announced on Tuesday that starter Rich Hill has been activated from the 10-day disabled list. Pitcher Grant Dayton was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City to create room on the roster for Hill.
Hill, 37, went on the disabled list after his April 16 start against the Diamondbacks due to a blister. The lefty was plagued by blister issues last season as well. Hill gave up three runs across in eight innings in his only two starts this season.
Hill will oppose the Giants’ Ty Blach in Tuesday night’s game in San Francisco.
KTAR News is reporting that Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested on Thursday morning for driving faster than 100 MPH, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.
The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. It is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor. Tomas may also have his license suspended.
A Diamondbacks spokesperson said, “We are very disappointed to learn of this news. We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter.”
Tomas, 27, signed a six-year, $68.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks in December 2014 as an amateur free agent out of Cuba. He has mostly disappointed, owning a .769 OPS while playing subpar defense in the outfield as well as at third base, where the club briefly tried him. He battled a groin injury for most of the past season and ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in August.
