The journey continues for Rich Hill who now is set to enter his 19th season in the league. The former Dodgers pitcher is now heading to the Pittsburgh Pirates, his 11th team.
While his numbers have never truly popped out, Hill being a part of another team entering his 19th season shows the true sportsmanship of his craft and his love for the game. In his four seasons with the Dodgers (2016-19), Hill recorded a 3.16 ERA with 427 strikeouts in 69 appearances.
Hill signs a one year contract with the Pirates worth $8 million, pending a physical, after starting in 26 games for the Red Sox last season.
Left-hander Rich Hill and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in agreement on a one-year, $8 million contract, pending physical, sources tell ESPN. Hill, who turns 43 in March, is entering his 19th big league season after making 26 starts and throwing 124.1 innings for Boston this year.

The journey is far from over for Hill and as long as teams keep paying him he will continue to play. Hill will turn 43 in March but for Hill age is truly just a number.
At this rate, Hill may play until he’s 50. Who says no to that?
