Red Sox sign Rich Hill

Rich Hill, the pride of Milton, has signed with the Red Sox and will report to Pawtucket according to PawSox broadcaster Dan Hoard.

The 30-year-old lefty with the good curveball was 4-3 with a 4.30 ERA for Memphis in the Cardinals organization. Hill is 21-20, 4.87 in 76 major-league appearances, 70 of them starts.

Hill pitched for the Orioles last season, going 3-3 with a 7.80 ERA. Without having yet spoken to anybody in the Red Sox organization, you would think they see him as possible relief relief and rotation depth.
