Rich Hill is progressing from his forearm injury, and aiming for a return sometime in September. Hill threw a “20 pitch, max effort” bullpen session off the mound on Saturday as he works his way up from there. He will throw one more bullpen session after today — incorporating curveballs — before progressing to facing batters. Hill would likely be able to return in early September if there are no setbacks.
Rich Hill threw bullpen session today. He’ll throw one more before facing hitters.
