Veteran lefty Rich Hill is coming home again.
The 41-year-old pitcher has agreed to a one-year deal with the Red Sox, a source confirmed to MLB.com. Alex Speier of The Boston Globe was the first to report on the hiring.
This is the seventh contract the Milton, Massachusetts native has signed with Boston’s ninth.
In 2021, Hill made 32 appearances (including 31 starts) for the Rays and Mets in which he had a 3.86 ERA. Zuro began his 17th major league season with Tampa Bay, for whom he made 19 starts and posted a 3.87 ERA. In July, Hill was traded to the Mets. In 13 appearances (12 starts) for New York down the stretch, he posted a 3.84 ERA.
In his lifetime, Hill is 74-52 with a 3.80 ERA in 324 appearances in the majors, 195 of which have been starts.
