    This afternoon the Yankees declined to pull back Matt Thornton when he was claimed on waivers by the Nationals, giving away the 37-year-old left-hander. And now to replace him in the bullpen they’ve called up 34-year-old left-hander Rich Hill from Triple-A.

    Non-roster left-hander Rich Hill had been away from the Red Sox since the start of camp due to a family health issue. On Thursday, he arrived in camp and elaborated on his absence, passing along the sad news that his newborn son has died. “€œWe had a son on December 26 and he was born…

  5. The Red Sox sign Rich Hill

    Rich Hill

    The Red Sox signed lefty Rich Hill to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Homecoming, I guess, as Hill pitched 40 games across three seasons with the Red Sox before going to Cleveland last year. His ERA was a hideous 6.28 ERA but he did strike out 51 batters over 38.2 innings…

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  8. Chris Perez had trouble warming up yesterday

    Chris Perez

    Watching the Tigers-Indians game yesterday and noticed that Chris Perez was warming up to come into a close, extra-innings game. Then he sat down and Terry Francona went with a combo of Rich Hill and Cody Allen in the 10th. What gives? While warming up in the bullpen in the top of the ninth, Perez…

    Rich Hill, who came back from elbow problems to pitch well down the stretch for the Red Sox last season, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Indians that includes an invitation to spring training. Hill has been plagued by arm problems throughout his career, but when healthy he’s shown the potential to be…

    Here’s the official list of Friday’s non-tenders: American League Angels: none Athletics: OF Jermaine Mitchell Mitchell had already been designated for assignment.

  11. Updated: Where would the Red Sox go minus Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett?

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:55 PM EST

    Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez

    The deal isn’t yet official, but it looks like Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto are all Los Angeles bound in exchange for four minimum-salaried players and  free-agent-to-be James Loney. That would cut $58.25 million in 2013 salaries from Boston’s payroll and leave the Red Sox committed to only four players for…

    Rich Hill came back strong from last year’s Tommy John elbow surgery, reclaiming a spot in the Red Sox’s bullpen and throwing 14 innings with a 2.63 ERA, but now the left-hander will miss at least a month with a strained flexor muscle in that same elbow. Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston says that actually…

    Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe this evening that “it’s conceivable” Rich Hill could be activated from the disabled list this weekend while the club is in Chicago. See, who needs Carl Crawford? Hill reinvented himself as a sidearmer last year and posted a 12/3 K/BB ratio over eight…

    Boston Red Sox Introduce Bobby Valentine

    We’re only one game into the season and there are already many questions about the Red Sox pitching staff. Andrew Bailey‘s recent thumb surgery has unexpectedly pushed Alfredo Aceves into the closer role while Daniel Bard and Felix Doubront are holding down the final two spots in the starting rotation. It’s much too soon make…

    Carlos Silva spent the final season of his four-year, $48 million contract at Triple-A and the 32-year-old right-hander will likely begin 2012 there as well after agreeing to a minor-league contract with the Red Sox. Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Silva will earn a prorated share of $1 million if the Red Sox call…

    Rich Hill posted incredible strikeout totals in the minors while coming up through the Cubs’ system and had a 3.92 ERA with 183 strikeouts in 195 innings in his first full season as a starter in 2007. Unfortunately because of injuries and prolonged bouts of wildness that stands as Hill’s only full season as a…
