It was reported on Thursday that the Yankees have signed former Red Sox pitcher Rich Hill, according to Chad Jennings of

Hill had most recently been with the Los Angeles Angels, where he appeared in two 2014 games, allowing one run on one hit with three walks without recording an out. He was released by the Angels on July 9.

He spent 2.5 seasons in the Red Sox organization from 2010-2012 before signing with the Indians for 2013. After the season, he re-signed with the Red Sox this past February, but never made the major league roster before the Angels purchased his contract from the Sox on July 1.


Hill played 25 games in Triple-A Pawtucket this season, going 3-3 with a 3.23 ERA and two saves in 39 innings, striking out 45 batters and walking 17.

Hill has pitched in 183 games in his 10-year major league career, going 24-22 with a 4.75 ERA. In 40 career games with the Red Sox, he went 2-0 with a 1.14 ERA in 31 2/3 innings.
