Rich Hill sent down to Triple A

Hill walked four in the first inning Friday before manager Lou Piniella pulled him. He walked 18 batters in 19 2/3 innings with the Cubs. Hill will remain at Triple-A until he shows some signs of confidence and maybe a pitch that doesn't look completely flat. The Cubs promoted Sean Gallagher who will immediately be put in the rotation. Sean Marshall is being overlooked yet again. May. 3 - 3:00 pm et


In one league I got him off waivers when he was struggling and now he's a minor leaguer. I guess guys who took Liriano and Hill as their 2/3 starters must be reeling.

Gallagher? What about Lieber? He has a 1.86 ERA and 9:2 K:BB in long relief, and his last full season with the Cubs brought a 20-6 season. Granted, that was 2001, but he also had solid numbers with the Phillies in his last full season with them.

Oh, my bad. The article said "The Cubs promoted Sean Gallagher who will immediately be put in the rotation. "

hill/liriano guy here

thankfully they are behind webb/zambrano/lince/penny. kind of tough to know what to do with them at this point.

1-0 with a ERA just over 4.

I know he has control problems, but getting yanked in the 1st inning and sent down seems a little extreme.

I agree 100%. If the Cubbies feel his control is that bad just have him miss a start and work with the pitching coach for the next week.

Liriano will be a waste of a roster spot the rest of the year,Hill atleast has hope.I'd dump Liriano(Go find a sleeper) ;-)

Liriano is a waste and I've said it all off season.

Hill had one good month last year and was pretty much mediocre. I don't see him being a big factor this year.
