According to the New York Daily News, the 27 year old starter is talking with the division rival New York Mets about possibly becoming a depth pitcher for the club. This means our former presumptive ace would start out in their Triple-A system and if healthy, and effective, would work his way up to the big league staff.
This in effect would be an excellent move for New York who's back end of the rotation is in dire need of help. When The Nats Blog went down to spring training we saw a
myriad of starting pitchers paraded about by the Mets, all vying for the last few spots. Possible candidates include former all-star Freddy Garcia, American import form Japan-Brandon Knight, and yes
Livan likes-his-money Hernandez (he makes a lot they say). The signing of Hill would give them a potential above average, young starting pitcher who can help them in the second half of the season. The only catch is Hill needs to be healthy. While this was a risk that was too big for the Nationals to rest their season hopes on, it would really be a no lose, all gain situation for the orange and blue.
Hill is also reportedly talking with the Toronto Blue Jays about a possible spot on the teams starting rotation. This would be a much more attractive position for Hill as he is a native Canadian (Eh!?) and he would get a chance to prove he still can be an effective starter in the majors.
