The Boston Red Sox have optioned Tyler Danish to Triple-A Worcester and have activated Rich Hill from the bereavement list, the team announced Sunday. The lefty Hill will start Sunday for the Sox after spending five days on the list.

Hill was placed on the list following the death of his father Lloyd Hill Sr. last Friday, though he pitched on Marathon Monday, something that Lloyd ran 37 times, just three days after the tragedy. Hill allowed four runs across 4 2/3 innings.

The 42-year-old, the oldest pitcher in the majors, was given an extra couple days as they pushed his start back. Through two outings, the southpaw is 0-1 while possessing a 9.00 ERA, allowing nine runs across nine innings to go along with a 5.35 xFIP.

Danish, 27, had a strong three innings across two relief outings with the team, not allowing a run nor a hit on just two walks.

Here are some notes from the Red Sox notebook today:
