Rich Hill has yet to start for the Dodgers since being traded to Los Angeles at the deadline due to a blister. That will change Wednesday when he makes his Dodgers debut against the Giants.
Hill has pitched wonderfully when healthy this year, providing a stellar 2.25 ERA over 14 starts. Now he’ll step up and Ross Stripling will step down. That is, if the Dodgers don’t suffer any more rotation injuries. Which they may given that Scott Kazmir is dealing with back and neck issues.
But hey, they’ve somehow managed to come this far despite everyone short of your mom starting for them this season. What’s another pitching injury or three?
