Red Sox Bringing Back Veteran Rich Hill, Pending Physical; 7th Time The Two Sides Have Agreed to a Deal (Report)

Rich Hill

The Red Sox are signing Rich Hill to a deal, pending his physical, according to The Boston Globe’s Alex Speier.

Hill will turn 42 in early March, and he spent his 2021 with the Rays and Mets where he posted a 3.86 ERA and a 4.70 xFIP across 32 games (31 starts). The Milton High graduate spent three seasons with Boston but had an injury-plagued 2010 and 2011 before posting a 1.83 ERA through 25 relief outings in 2012.

The Sox then signed him out of an independent league in 2015, where through four starts he pitched a 1.55 ERA. Speier notes that this is the seventh time that he has reached a deal with the Sox.

Hill will get a one-year deal with Boston, worth $4 million.
