Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Thursday 9 June 2016 at 5:09 pm

The Oakland A’s have placed 36-year old lefty starting pitcher Rich Hill on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right groin.  Hill has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 8-3 with a 2.25 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.  He has given up only 48 hits and 24 walks while whiffing 74 batters in his first 64 innings this year….which are very impressive numbers.  He has also hit 7 batters so far this year.  Hill was signed to a 1-year, $6 million dollar deal last winter which raised some eyebrows.  But it appears that the A’s got a bargain when everyone thought they overspent on Hill.  The A’s need Hill to get healthy soon, as he has been their best starting pitcher in 2016….by a huge margin!
