Shawn Hill

Postby JYarsh381 » Fri May 11, 2007 11:50 pm

5 IP, OH, 2BB, 5K--- threw a no hitter before being taken out under caution for elbow stiffness (which is apparently nothing serious).

His ERA is down to 2.70, and his sinker has been really effective in the spacious RFK.

Sleeper or will he fall off?

nothing serious?

"If he seemed a bit sombre, and the home clubhouse was quiet despite a rare victory, it's because Shawn Hill, Washington's most effective starter this season and Georgetown, Ont., native, said he's "99 per cent sure" he'll go on the disabled list with a sore right elbow that forced him out of the game after five no-hit innings."

I'm pretty sure that 1% chance will prevail ;-7

Well, considering he's recently coming off TJ surgery, this injury could be a major setback for him.

With that said, he could potentially be a useful guy for his ratios. He doesn't have excellent stuff (high 80s/low 90s FB), but he's got strong ground ball tendencies and excellent infield defense behind him in Washington. Sickels had him pegged as something of a sleeper, provided his control stayed with him. His walk rate thus far indicates that it pretty much has, so while I wouldn't expect very much in Ks (right now he isn't even at 5K/9, and I see no reason to expect improvement) or Ws (he plays for the Naughts :-P ), but he could be a useful guy to eat innings and help out your ratios in deeper or NL-only leauges.

Well now that he is on the DL is anyone holding on to him. In my league the best SP look like Padilla, R.Ortiz, Maholom, Okha, fogg. Im thinking of holding on....anyone else?

When I hit the wire poor Shawn is my first piece of trash getting tossed overboard. Enjoyed his last performance but this is business.

Shawn is back, starting against Philly tomorrow night. Anyone starting him?

Aug 12 Hill (elbow/shoulder) will be limited to 80 pitches in his first start off the DL on Tuesday against the Phillies, the Nationals' official site reports.

That took a while. I had him on the DL on many teams, but I think I might have dropped him in most leagues. I wouldn't start him against the Phillies, but he is certainly a guy to keep an eye on in deeper leagues. Although you can't count on WAS giving him much run support, Hill still has a couple things going for him: starting half of his games at RFK and being a Canadian. Just look at what "being a Canadian" did to Erik Bedard this year. ;-D
