The Indians have signed 32-year old lefty reliever Rich Hill to a minor league deal. Hill pitched in 25 games (0 starts) for the Red Sox last year and he was 1-0 with a 1.83 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. He has now pitched in 118 games (70 starts) in his first eight years in the majors and he is 23-20 with a 4.59 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Hill’s career numbers are skewed quite a bit due to his starts. In his first 48 games out of the bullpen in his career, Hill is 3-0 with a 2.76 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. I really like this pickup for the Tribe as I think Hill will help them in 2013 as long as he can stay healthy.
