Hill gave up just two hits over six innings with seven strikeouts in a start for Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Recommendation: Hill could be activated from the DL and return to the rotation next weekend, but it's not clear who he'd replace.
Anyone taking a chance on him? He's still only 29, and I think his confidence was just absolutely destroyed by Lou Pinella...he's always had the skill-set but just wasn't able to mentally re-establish himself in 2008, and I don't think the Cubs really gave him a chance to get back to form. Hopefully the change of scenery helps (even if it is the AL East), but he's looked solid in his last few rehab/minor league starts.
