San Diego, ‘just a waste of money’ Rich Hill headed to San Diego with Choi Ji-man, eventually announced waiver… Remains unless claimed by another team

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.
