Injuries were always part of the deal for Hill, who missed time early in the season due to an MCL injury. Since returning in late April, he recorded a 2.55 ERA, 61 strikeouts, and 12 walks in 10 starts before landing back on the IL with a forearm injury. The 39-year-old began playing catch in mid-July and is aiming for a September return, but he's likely to come back as a reliever. That news should compel managers to move on in all mixed leagues.

With so many players on the IL, it might not make sense to hold onto Hill who doesn't even have a timetable for return quite yet. He is always excellent when he pitches, however, so if he does return, scramble to scoop him back up.

Hill missed the first month with a knee strain, but he's been his usual excellent self since returning. The next injury is never far away with Hill, but he should be a major fantasy asset whenever he takes the mound.
