The Red Sox are adding another veteran to their pitching staff, as the team and Rich Hill have come to terms on a one-year deal, according to Alex Speier of the Boston Globe.
Hill, who will be 42 years old when the 2022 season begins, spent the 2021 season with the Rays and Mets, combining for a 7-8 record and 3.86 ERA, while his 158.2 innings pitched finished as his most thrown since 2007.
A Milton, Mass. native, Hill pitched for the Red Sox from 2010 through 2012, and had another stint with Boston in 2015, and has posted a 4-1 record and 1.34 ERA over the course of his 44-game Red Sox career.
Per Speier, this will actually be Hill’s seventh different time he’s signed with the Red Sox.
A 17-year veteran, Hill has a 74-52 record and 3.80 ERA in a career that’s included runs with 11 different teams.
