When the Oakland A’s signed 36-year old lefty starting pitcher Rich Hill to a 1-year, $6 million dollar deal…..it raised a lot of eyebrows around the league. But, Hill is rewarding the A’s so far this year as he is pitching great. Hill has pitched in 9 games (all starts) so far this year for the A’s and he is 6-3 with a 2.54 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. Hill has only given up 35 hits and 21 walks while whiffing 59 batters in his first 49 2/3 innings this year. He has now pitched in 13 games (all starts) in his last two years in the show and he is 8-4 with a 2.17 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP! Those are amazing numbers for Hill, as he is surging to excellence late in his career. He has now pitched in 210 games (83 starts) in his first 12 years in the show and he is 32-26 with a 4.36 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. The A’s hope that Hill can keep up the good work!
