Infielder Greg Dobbs and right-hander Shawn Hill have agreed to minor-league contracts with the Florida Marlins.
With the Washington Nationals still opting to be cautious with starter Shawn Hill, it appears left-hander Matt Chico will return from the bullpen to make Hill's scheduled start tomorrow against the Phillies.
VIERA, Fla. — Shawn Hill, as harsh of a self-critic as they come, won't say this often following one of his starts: "To be honest, I really don't care how I did. It was more how I felt today."
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.

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Shawn Hill returned to the mound yesterday for the first time in seven weeks.
Conventional wisdom says the Washington Nationals have exceeded expectations over the last three months. A ballclub panned by every preseason prognosticator as the worst in the major leagues, one capable of losing at historic rates, is anything but a pushover.
Jim Bowden gets a lot of grief for his oft-uttered, rarely executed philosophy that teams win in baseball with "pitching, pitching, pitching," but the Washington Nationals general manager is right.
THE WASHINGTON TIMES Their names are forever known by baseball fans, their images forever burned in their memories for their contributions to the seminal moments in the sport's history.
