Dodgers: Rich Hill Takes Step Forward in Recovery from Knee Injury

When Rich Hill left his return start with a knee injury on Thursday night in Baltimore, initial fears were that he may be done for the season. However, Rich is notoriously a stubborn player and is already trying to expedite his recovery and get back on the mound.

He had been pitching with a knee brace for most of the early part of the season after suffering a similar injury in spring training in March. The plan for Hill is still to undergo an MRI exam once the team is back home in Los Angeles on Monday. Moreover, him testing various foot placements could show that he might not care very much about the results of the exam.

The 39 year-old returned from a 3 month absence on Thursday to record 2 outs while facing only 6 batters before exiting with the new knee injury. On the season, Hill is 4-1 with a 2.68 ERA in 11 starts (53.2 IP).
