For the second time this season, the Los Angeles Dodgers have placed starting pitcher Rich Hill on the 10-day disabled list with a blister on his throwing hand.
Hill, 37, started for the Dodgers against Arizona on Sunday, but was only able to last three innings before exiting. It was his first start since being placed in the DL earlier in the month with the same injury.
Remember, Hill struggled through blister issues after being acquired by Los Angels form the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline last year. Despite this, the Dodgers signed him to a three-year, $48 million contract during the winter.
This really has to be concerning to both the Dodgers and fantasy owners the world over. Hill was dominating in between Oakland and Los Angeles last season, posting a 2.12 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 129 strikeouts in 110 innings.
With Hill on the shelf, expect Alex Wood to continue replacing him in the rotation. Woods has pitched to a 1.00 ERA in three appearances (one start) this season.
