Local product in
his third stint with the organization.
Tall lefty features a 90-92 mph fastball, a plus 12-to-6 curveball, and
a passable changeup. Poor control and subpar command. Hill tends to hang
his curveball and get hit around, but when he keeps it down his
curveball is unhittable. In 2011, Hill moved to a sidearm
delivery. Using that new delivery, Hill is throwing a 87-92 mph
rising fastball and a decent low-to-mid 70s curveball.
