Inks one-year deal
PSan Diego Padres
January 13, 2023
Hill signed a one-year, $1.85 million contract with the Padres on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill posted a 3.56 ERA in 2022 but managed just 25 strikeouts over 48 innings and missed some time with a shoulder problem. It's possible the heavy usage over the years in his age-32 season just caught up to him, but the Padres will hope he can return to form in 2023.

Stat Review
How does Tim Hill compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.
  • BB/9

    The percentage of batted ball events resulting in a Barrel. A Barrel is a batted ball with similar exit velocity and launch angle to past ones that led to a minimum .500 batting average and 1.500 slugging percentage.
  • Spin Rate
    Spin Rate is the rate of spin on a baseball after it is released. It is measured in revolutions per minute (rpm).
  • Balls Hit 95+ MPH
    The percentage of batted balls hit that met or exceeded the 95 MPH threshold.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2020
2019
Hill spent his first full season in San Diego in 2021 and led the team with a career-high 17 holds. A 3.62 ERA and 1.24 WHIP suggest that the team's trust in him in high-leverage situations was earned. However, a deeper dive raises significant levels of concern that his performance could take a significant dip - or at least make it unlikely he figures into the saves picture -- in 2022. For example, he posted a career-low 12.9 K-BB% while his HR/9 vaulted to 1.4 despite an impressive 61 GB%. Hill particularly struggled against right-handed hitters in 2021, as he allowed 2.0 HR/9 when he lacked the handedness advantage. Far more effective against lefties, Hill appears likely to shift back to a middle-relief role in 2022, particularly given the Padres aggressive approach in retaining and adding to the talent in their bullpen early this offseason.
Traded from the Royals to the Padres shortly before the start of the delayed 2020 season, Hill made 23 appearances, totaling 18 innings in his first season in San Diego. Major League Baseball implemented the three-batter minimum, but even so Hill ended up facing a greater percentage of lefties than he did in 2018-19 (45 of 79 batters faced). With his funky delivery and heavy-sinker approach, Hill keeps the ball on the ground and in fact has only allowed two home runs to left-handed hitters in his career. Righties have had far less trouble with him, managing a 1.44 HR/9 against Hill. He's a throwback finesse specialist, throwing around 90-91 mph with a modest career 23.1 K%. Manager Jayce Tingler will call on Hill when he needs a groundball in a left-on-left matchup in the mid-to-late innings. Perhaps Hill will vulture a save or two along the way.
Hill is a funky-delivery lefty reliever who has been used in two roles -- to get lefties out in tight situations, or to soak up work in the bullpen in blowouts. Hill's delivery has held lefties to a .211/.276/.248 slash line in his time with the Royals, while righties have hit him at a .259/.332/.434 clip. The new rules in 2020 mandating pitchers face at least three hitters increase the importance of Hill doing better against righties, or he could find himself marginalized to the minor leagues. He has minimal appeal in his current capacity in standard-scoring fantasy leagues. If Hill is moved to a contender, as has been rumored this winter, he could generate some interest in leagues that count holds though even then his middling K-rate (career 22.6%) would render him a last-resort option.
There's a myriad of reasons why a player's MLB debut doesn't occur until he's 28 years old. In Hill's case, he was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in 2015. After a combination of surgery and chemotherapy, Hill became a cancer survivor and reembarked on his career. Perseverance paid off as Hill broke camp with the Royals, making his debut on Opening Day. Hill went on to appear in 70 games, throwing 45.2 innings, mostly as a situational lefty. Hill was used more in high-leverage spots after the break, recording eight of his 13 holds and registering a 2.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 15 punchouts in 18 second-half frames. His success down the stretch likely earned Hill more higher-leverage opportunities out of the gate this season. However, his low innings along with a pedestrian strikeout rate deprive him of fantasy value, except in leagues scoring holds, and even then there are likely better options.
