Hill gets close

The Orioles are nearing a decision on when Rich Hill will begin his injury rehab stint and thus setting a timetable for when he can rejoin the Orioles. Hill, who has been sidelined with a strained left elbow, will only be able to work out for a month after he begins his rehab stint.

“I think we want to be pretty well sure that he’ll be ready to go and start and get his pitches up. I think he’ll be ready to throw 60, 75 pitches right off the bat,” said manager Dave Trembley, who expects to have a decision on Hill by Tuesday.

Hill, who didn’t have much of a Spring Training, will need some time to round into shape. And once he gets ready, he’ll likely step right into Baltimore’s volatile rotation.
