Rich Hill will need season-ending surgery

Yesterday we saw Rich Hill leave the White Sox-Red Sox game after grabbing his left arm. Today the worst fears have been confirmed: Pete Abraham reports that Hill will need season-ending surgery.  The exact diagnosis is unknown, but the MRI he received yesterday confirmed that the injury was serious. Probably a ligament/Tommy John thing.

Hill was having a good year too, having come back from previous shoulder surgery to remake himself a pretty effective lefty specialist.  Bad luck.
