On Tuesday, the Angels received lefty Rich Hill from the Red Sox for cash considerations. Hill made his 2014 debut that day in the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox, loading the bases on a single and two walks before being replaced by Joe Smith, who allowed an inherited run to score on a ground ball double play. Hill pitched again in the second half of the doubleheader, walking the only batter he faced.
The Angels have ended the Rich Hill experiment, as the club announced that the 34-year-old lefty has been designated for assignment to make room for the recently-acquired Joe Thatcher. The Angels made two additional moves as well, optioning Cory Rasmus to Triple-A Salt Lake, and selecting the contract of Michael Roth from Double-A Arkansas.
