Why it Matters

Hill being optioned to Toledo comes as no surprise as he has struggled so far in 2023, and the Tigers will need to open up a spot on their roster for Eduardo Rodriguez, who will get the start on Wednesday. So far this season, Hill has 9.88 ERA in 13.2 innings of work at the MLB level.
