Right- handed pitcher Shawn Hill will make his second and supposedly last rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Columbus.
Hill threw 69 pitches in five shutout innings on Tuesday night for Single-A Potomac.
Hill said he felt no sharp pain during the outing, and his arm felt as it normally feels after he pitches. He said he is comfortable with the decision to make another minor league start, one in which he could throw 90 to 100 pitches.
I think this is a good decision by Acta because I don't think one start against a Single-A team really shows that you're ready. He definitely needs to pitch in Triple-A at least once before he comes off the DL.
(ed. note- "See how Hill does in his Triple-A start on Sunday...I recommend you check the Bell Ringer: The Columbus Clippers Baseball Blog, or the Nationals Farm Authority for all the news from the Nationals' system.)
