Rich Hill moving up to Pawtucket

General manager Ben Cherington said today that lefthanded reliever Rich Hill was assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. That should be the last step in his injury rehabilitation assignment.

Hill has appeared in five Single-A games for Greenville and Salem. His line: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 13 K. He struck out the side in his inning for Salem on Wednesday night.

Hill has made a remarkable recovery from Tommy John surgery last June 9. His return to the majors would be a boost for the struggling Red Sox bullpen.
