Top Tim Hill News

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Effective this spring

    Hill tossed 8.2 innings in Cactus League play, allowing three runs on six hits while posting an 11:3 K:BB.

    Despite his results this spring, Hill has never been much of a strikeout pitcher, and he posted a career-worst 4.7 K/9 last season. The southpaw is locked into a role in the Padres' bullpen, however, and he'll open the campaign as the team's lone lefty reliever not named Josh Hader since Drew Pomeranz (elbow) and Jose Castillo (shoulder) are expected to begin the season on the injured list.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Inks one-year deal

    Hill signed a one-year, $1.85 million contract with the Padres on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Hill posted a 3.56 ERA in 2022 but managed just 25 strikeouts over 48 innings and missed some time with a shoulder problem. It's possible the heavy usage over the years in his age-32 season just caught up to him, but the Padres will hope he can return to form in 2023.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Notches win Tuesday

    Hill (3-0) earned the win over San Francisco on Tuesday by striking out the only batter he faced.

    The Padres summoned newly acquired closer Josh Hader in the ninth inning to protect a three-run lead, but he melted down and allowed three runs to score. Hill entered with the go-ahead run at second base and struck out Joc Pederson to keep the game tied, and the reliever picked up the victory when Manny Machado launched a walkoff homer in the bottom of the frame. Hill hasn't allowed an earned run in 14 straight starts, though he's notched only six strikeouts over 12.2 innings during that stretch.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Picks up sixth hold Saturday

    Hill earned a hold against Arizona on Saturday, allowing two hits and no walks in one scoreless inning.

    Hill was called upon in the eighth inning as the bridge to closer Taylor Rogers with San Diego nursing a one-run lead. He made things interesting by giving up consecutive one-out singles, but the southpaw was able to get out of danger by inducing an inning-ending double play. Hill picked up five holds across his first 10 outings of the season, but this was his first since May 23 -- a span of 19 games. His strikeout rate has been cut exactly in half to 11.0 percent after he posted a 22.0 percent rate in 2021, and he's posted a 4.15 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 26 innings overall this season.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Notches second win

    Hill (2-0) earned the win over Arizona on Tuesday by retiring one batter.

    The game went into extra innings, and Hill was brought in with two outs and two runners on base in the top of the 11th. He began his outing by hitting Josh Rojas with a pitch but got out of the bases-loaded situation by inducing a fielder's-choice groundout. Hill was then credited with the win when San Diego walked off with a victory in the bottom of the frame. The lefty reliever has pitched four straight scoreless outings and has collected five holds along with his pair of wins on the season.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Earns win Sunday

    Hill (1-0) was credited with the win against Milwaukee on Sunday as a result of pitching 1.1 scoreless innings. He allowed one hit and struck out one batter.

    The game was tied 3-3 when Hill entered in the eighth inning, but Milwaukee had the bases loaded with two outs. Hill retired Jace Peterson to end the threat, then remained in the game for the ninth frame and set down three straight batters following a leadoff single. Hill earned his first win of the campaign when San Diego pulled ahead in the 10th. The left-hander has notched five holds this season while compiling a 5.40 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 5:3 K:BB across 11.2 innings.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Reinstated from injured list

    Hill (shoulder) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday.

    Hill had been sidelined since early May due to shoulder inflammation, but he's been cleared to rejoin the major-league bullpen without a rehab assignment. Over his five appearances prior to his absence, the southpaw allowed seven runs while striking out one in three innings.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Out with shoulder inflammation

    Hill landed on the 10-day injured list Saturday due to shoulder inflammation, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Hill has struggled to start the season, striking out just one batter in 5.2 innings while giving up seven runs on 11 hits. He'll now miss potentially an extended period, though the team hasn't specified exactly when he's expected back. Ray Kerr was recalled to give the Padres another lefty in the bullpen in Hill's absence.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Collects third hold

    Hill earned a hold against Pittsburgh on Sunday with a perfect eighth inning.

    The Padres held a 3-1 lead when Hill came on in the eighth, but the Pirates had loaded the bases with no outs against Robert Suarez. Hill yielded a sacrifice fly to the first batter he faced but kept the damage to a minimum by subsequently inducing a double play. The lefty reliever has posted an unappealing 7.20 ERA on the season due to a pair of rough outings, but he has held opponents scoreless in six of his eight appearances overall.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Yields only Arizona hits Friday

    Hill tossed two-thirds of an inning against the Diamondbacks on Friday, allowing two hits but no runs.

    For the second straight game, Hill was brought into the contest after a Padres starter held Arizona scoreless. In both instances, the southpaw coughed up the combined no-hitter by yielding a single to the first batter he faced. Further, Hill ended both outings having surrendered a pair of hits but has yet to be charged with any runs. As one of only two left-handers currently in San Diego's bullpen (closer Taylor Rogers is the other), Hill figures to see plenty of action again this season after getting into a career-high 78 contests in 2021.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Returning to Padres

    Hill signed a one-year, $1.325 million contract with the Padres on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The 31-year-old will return to the Padres for a third consecutive season after pitching in 78 games with the squad in 2021. He tossed 59.2 innings while compiling a 3.62 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and striking out 56 batters. Hill's 17 holds were the second-highest on the team and he will remain a setup option for the Padres next season.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Stuck with extra-inning loss

    Hill (5-6) allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits without recording an out while taking the loss Wednesday versus Oakland.

    San Diego was able to take a 4-3 lead in the top of the 10th inning, but Hill gave it away on a walkoff two-run double by Matt Olson. The 31-year-old southpaw has taken a pair of losses and blown saves each in his last five outings. He's still been fairly reliable with a 2.85 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 47:16 K:BB across 41 innings this season while collecting 13 holds and one save in 53 appearances.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Tagged with relief loss

    Hill (5-5) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Marlins after allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while fanning one across two-thirds of an inning.

    Hill pitched the seventh inning but couldn't complete the entire frame, as he gave up runs that would be decisive for the outcome of the contest via two-run single from Jesus Aguilar. This outing ended Hill's run of six straight scoreless appearances, though he only covered 3.1 innings over that span.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Notches 13th hold

    Hill earned a hold Thursday versus Miami by retiring the only batter he faced.

    The southpaw was brought in to face lefty Magneuris Sierra with two outs in the eighth inning and made quick work of the pinch hitter, getting Sierra to ground out on the first pitch. The outing was Hill's sixth straight without allowing a run or a hit, though he has covered only 3.1 innings over that span. On the season, he has posted a 2.37 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, one save and 13 holds.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Stuck with loss Monday

    Hill (5-4) took the loss Monday against the Nationals after allowing one run on one hit while striking out a batter over an inning.

    Hil entered to begin the seventh trying to hold a 5-5 tie and was unable to do so. Josh Bell took him yard on the first pitch he saw to put the Nationals back out in front 6-5, and they never looked back. The long ball was the first Hill's given up since May 31. He now sits at a 2.65 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 37:12 K:BB over 34 innings.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Gets untraditional save

    Hill allowed one hit in a scoreless fifth inning was credited with a save Wednesday against the Reds.

    Hill pitched the fifth inning with a two-run lead after Joe Musgrove was pulled. He was the last pitcher to throw for the Padres, which allowed him to earn an untraditional save when the game was eventually called due to rain. Hill has been a steady option out of the team's bullpen this season -- he's maintained a 2.48 ERA and racked up 36 strikeouts across 32.2 innings -- but Mark Melancon should remain in line to see save opportunities in normal circumstances going forward.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Credited with win

    Hill (5-3) allowed three runs (one earned) on two hits and one walk across one inning to earn the win over Arizona on Sunday.

    Hill entered the seventh inning with a 2-1 lead, but quickly surrendered the lead after the first four batters reached base safely. The Padres ended up retaking the lead later in the inning, giving Hill the win. The 31-year-old has a 2.56 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP in 31.2 innings. Prior to Sunday, he didn't allow a run in his last five straight appearances.

  • Padres' Tim Hill: Secures 10th hold

    Hill earned a hold Friday against Arizona, pitching a scoreless inning during which he gave up two hits and struck out one.

    The lefty surrendered a pair of singles to lead off the frame but bounced back to retire the next three batters and keep the Diamondbacks off the scoreboard. Hill has hung a goose egg in 11 of his past 12 outings and has registered a 2.35 ERA and 1.17 WHIP overall this season. He hasn't picked up any saves or holds but does have four wins in relief while racking up a 36:11 K:BB across 30.2 frames.
