3 Potential Landing Spots For 41-Year-Old Rich Hill

Rich Hill has made it clear that he wants to play the 2022 season. When looking at his stats this past campaign, he honestly has earned himself another one-year deal at a minimum. In 32 games between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Mets, he had a 7-8 record, 3.86 ERA and 150 strikeouts. That is more than enough for him to be a fourth or fifth starter. 

These three teams should absolutely considering adding the 41-year-old. 

Boston Red Sox: It's been reported by Alex Speier of the Boston Globe that the Red Sox are interested in a reunion with Hill. He pitched for Boston from 2010-2012 and came back for a second stint in 2015. The Massachusetts native could be a very nice option for the bottom half of the Red Sox's rotation and the team has already lost three pitchers this offseason in Eduardo Rodriguez, Garrett Richards and Martin Perez.

Milwaukee Brewers: The Brewers pursued Hill heavily last offseason, but he opted to sign with the Rays. It would be surprising if they do not try to bring in the veteran starter again, as it wouldn't hurt them to add another decent option to their rotation. He was quite effective again this season and is absolutely worth it if he signs another deal like his one-year, $2.5 million contract in 2021.

Los Angeles Angels: The Angels have had themselves a very good start to the offseason, as they have signed starter Noah Syndergaard and reliever Aaron Loup. This should only be the beginning of their signings, though, as they have stars Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani and need to be a playoff team. Hill would be such a good option to round off their rotation.
