Rich Hill will probably get more money than the Astros would be comfortable paying. He has always had ability, but his control/command has to be exceptional to translate to the field and he has had serious injury issues dating back to his time with the Cubs. If he is healthy he is capable of putting together 150 innings of exceptional pitching. The Dodgers front office think highly of him and I am sure they will over pay. I don't think the Astros are in a position to risk 60-70 million dollars on a 36 year old (although his "stuff" ages well) on someone with the injury history of Hill. Yes, there is supposedly some traction to the Pirates seriously considering moving on from McCutchen. His performance has slipped, the Pirates have payroll restraints and have targeted long term competitiveness as the goal. With that in mind, it makes sense for them to be open to the possibility of moving him for the right package. I think the larger concern is, what team is going to deal the talent necessary to acquire him with his recent performance.
