Rich Hill, Twins have sights set on World Series together

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) After four playoff appearances, including two trips to the World Series, in four years with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Rich Hill was a 39-year-old free agent coming off another elbow surgery.

Unlikely to return until at least June, Hill wanted to find a team to get him back to the World Series. The Minnesota Twins came calling, seeking Hill for just for that reason.

"He's coming back from an injury, but I think we feel the reward is significant because, qualitatively, he has been a stellar pitcher when he's been healthy," Minnesota general manager Thad Levine said. "He's pitched down the stretch in very tough situations and he's pitched in the postseason, so I think we're viewing him as a guy that has every bit a chance to start in a playoff series and that's important for us."
