Rich Hill had a fantastic year last year. But he missed a whole bunch of it too — from July 17 until August 24 — thanks to a severe blister problem on his pitching hand. So it’s certainly scary news for Dodgers fans to hear that Hill has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a blister once again.
The move is retroactive to yesterday, meaning that Hill is eligible to return from the April 16, but given what happened last year no one should bet on it. In the meantime, it appears as though Alex Wood will take Hill’s rotation spot.
