Rays have deals with Hill, McHugh

The Rays are on the verge of adding a pair of veteran arms to their pitching staff.

The defending American League champions are in agreement on separate deals with left-hander Rich Hill and right-hander Collin McHugh, sources told on Friday night. The club has not confirmed either agreement, as both are pending physicals that may not be completed until Spring Training begins next week.

If finalized, Hill’s one-year deal will be worth $2.5 million, according to’s Mark Feinsand, who first reported that the Rays were nearing an agreement with the lefty. McHugh’s deal will be for $1.8 million, as first reported by the Tampa Bay Times.

In Hill and McHugh, the Rays are set to add two experienced pitchers who seem like perfect fits for what could be another one of their creative pitching plans.

It's neat to see Hill hang around, maintain his effectiveness and keep striking dudes out even into his 40's.

Rich Hill was teammates with Greg Maddux and could be teammates with Wander Franco this year. He was originally drafted out of high school by the Reds (didn't sign) in 1999, when the Rays were in their second year of existence. The second MLB hitter he ever faced was Miguel Cabrera - who is also still playing.

Dick Mountain!

Loved him in LA. Wish he could've won a ring here.
