VIERA, Fla. — Though starter Shawn Hill threw off a mound yesterday, used all of his pitches and said he felt no tightness in his right arm, manager Manny Acta has all but ruled him out to start the season in the Washington Nationals' rotation.
PHILADELPHIA — The Washington Nationals have defied expectations this season largely because of their ability to overcome a string of injuries that has left their Opening Day rotation in shambles.
"He's got 755," Washington pitching coach Randy St. Claire said. "There's a lot of pitchers who have given it up to him. ... As much as we say it's no big deal to give up 756, no pitcher wants to give that 756th homer up."
"He needs to get them in order, but whether they're going to be perfect right from the get-go, he's asking too much," St. Claire said.
