The Detroit Tigers have confirmed that they have signed former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Shawn Hill to a minor league contract.
Hill last season pitched most of the season down in the minor leagues for the Jays for their Triple-A affiliate the Las Vegas 51’s. While with the 51’s Hill had a 9-2 record but his ERA wasn’t as solid he posted a 4.52 ERA at the end of the season.
The full credentials of the contract is still yet to be determined such as a Spring Training invite. But what was announced is that he is likely to start the season down at Triple-A if he does not get a Spring Training invite.
