The San Diego Padres wasted money.
Veteran pitcher Rich Hill, who was traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the San Diego Padres along with Ji-Man Choi, was eventually announced on waivers.안전놀이터
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported on the 13th (Korean time) that San Diego placed left-hander Hill on waivers. If no other team claims Hill, Hill will remain in San Diego.
The team that takes Hill only has to pay $817,000 of his $8 million salary this year.
Hill, 43, has not performed as well as expected in San Diego. He pitched in seven games, posting a 9.27 ERA and allowing 23 runs in 22 1/3 innings. He had a much worse ERA than his 4.76 ERA in Pittsburgh. Hill had a below-average strikeout rate of 19.6% compared to a slightly above-average walk rate of 8.9%.
Since 2005, Hill has pitched 1,400 1/3 innings in 379 games, with an ERA of 4.01, 89 wins and 73 losses, a strikeout rate of 23.9%, and a walk rate of 9.1%.
I wonder if there will be a team that will recruit Hill for the remaining three weeks.
Meanwhile, Choi Ji-man has recovered from his injury and is playing rehabilitation games with the minor league Triple A team.
