15 days takes them almost to the all-star break. So who will we see on the mound for Boston first at this point, Hill or Sale?

Probably a good chance Hill won't throw another pitch in MLB again.
Based on what? More than a sprain? Not really his knee? I suppose it could be more than 15 days, but hes pitched pretty well this season.

Underrated poor move by Cora leaving Hill in the game when he was obviously hurting. Walk, Single, HBP after the mound visit with the trainer. Danish let one of the inherited runners score to make it a 4-3 game.

It’s almost as if managing injuries and COVID-related roster issues is hard.

Count me as someone who hopes Hill is back soon enough after the ASB. He’s not only pitched fairly well but also provides a measure of experience, leadership and dependability the staff needs.
