Rich Hill diagnosed with a sprained MCL

Rich Hill has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his left knee.

Fantasy Impact

He's expected to undergo an MRI but this is the exact same issue Hill dealt with in spring training. There's a decent chance he could be done for the season. The veteran lefty has made 11 starts this year and posted a 2.68 ERA.

Rich Hill exits with knee issue

Rich Hill was pulled after 2/3 of an inning in Thursday’s contest against the Orioles due to a left knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Hill was activated ahead of Thursday’s start after missing time with a forearm injury. He exited Thursday’s contest early with an apparent knee injury. The Dodgers have not revealed the severity of his knee injury, but an update should be provided after the game. Hill is considered day-to-day.

Rich Hill (elbow) will pitch out of bullpen when returning

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says Rich Hill (elbow) will pitch out of the bullpen when he returns to the team.

Fantasy Impact

Hill just doesn't have enough time to build his arm strength back up. He's currently aiming to return sometime in mid-September.

Rich Hill (elbow) aiming for September return

Rich Hill (elbow) threw from 75 feet and aims to progress to a bullpen session in the next few weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Hill and the Dodgers are taking their time with this injury and have no reason to rush him back. The Dodgers have an 18-game division lead over the second-place Diamondbacks and can afford to take things slow with the 39-year-old in preparation for a playoff run. Expect Hill to return in mid-September at the earliest, and even then, the Dodgers will probably ease him back into the rotation.

Rich Hill diagnosed with flexor strain

Rich Hill has been diagnosed with a flexor strain. Early reports indicate that he'll have to wait three-to-four weeks before he's able to pick up a baseball. Hill is hopeful that he'll be able to return this season.

Fantasy Impact

This isn't a guaranteed season-ending injury, but given the timing and the way the Dodgers have played thus far, the team could take their time working Hill back from injury. They have several other options in the rotation that should more than hold them over, which would allow them to work on getting the veteran Hill back for the playoffs. Of course, that's not helpful for fantasy owners that play in leagues that end before the end of the regular season, potentially sometime in early September. For now, it's best to hold Hill on the IL if possible, but his value certainly takes a hit with this news.
