Sep. 24 6:31 PM PT7:31 PM MT8:31 PM CT9:31 PM ET21:31 ET1:31 GMT9:31 6:31 PM MST8:31 PM EST9:01 PM VEN5:31 UAE (+1)8:31 PM CT-The Dodgers have scratched Hill from his scheduled start Sunday in the series finale against Colorado because of a blister that forced him to miss a month earlier in the season.
Analysis: The blister also caused Hill to leave a perfect game after seven innings on Sept. 11. Manager Dave Roberts said Hill would start either next Saturday or Sunday at San Francisco, where the NL West leaders conclude the regular season. Hill has been dealing with the blister since before he was acquired Aug. 1 from Oakland in a trade.
Sep. 21 9:56 AM PT10:56 AM MT11:56 AM CT12:56 PM ET12:56 ET16:56 GMT0:56 9:56 AM MST11:56 AM EST12:26 PM VEN20:56 UAE11:56 AM CT-Hill (12-5) started for the Dodgers and pitched five innings on Tuesday, allowing just one run - the homer by Nunez - and six hits while striking out seven and walking one. Hill came out after 77 pitches.
Analysis: Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts took Hill out as a precaution due to concerns about a recurring blister.
Sep. 16 9:54 AM PT10:54 AM MT11:54 AM CT12:54 PM ET12:54 ET16:54 GMT0:54 9:54 AM MST11:54 AM EST12:24 PM VEN20:54 UAE11:54 AM CT-Hill suffered his first loss in a Dodgers uniform and first since May 1 on Thursday, allowing four runs in 5 1/3 innings of a 7-3 defeat in Arizona.
Analysis: Hill hadn't allowed a run in his first three starts since being acquired from Oakland and won them all. Though he called the performance "unacceptable," Hill wasn't all that bad considering he gave up just four hits and a walk while striking out eight. Even manager Dave Roberts said, "Actually he threw the ball well."
Sep. 10 8:36 PM PT9:36 PM MT10:36 PM CT11:36 PM ET23:36 ET3:36 GMT11:36 8:36 PM MST10:36 PM EST11:06 PM VEN7:36 UAE (+1)10:36 PM CT-Hill was removed after throwing seven perfect innings against the Miami Marlins in a 5-0 victory on Saturday night.
Analysis: Hill (3-0) had thrown 89 pitches and struck out nine when first-year manager Dave Roberts replaced the 35-year-old left-hander with Joe Blanton at the start of the eighth inning. He has pitched 19 scoreless innings since joining the Dodgers after an Aug. 1 trade with Oakland.
Sep. 4 9:28 AM PT10:28 AM MT11:28 AM CT12:28 PM ET12:28 ET16:28 GMT0:28 9:28 AM MST11:28 AM EST11:58 AM VEN20:28 UAE11:28 AM CT-Hill allowed one hit while striking out eight over six innings in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Padres. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning at Dodger Stadium.
Analysis: Dating to his time with Oakland, Hill has gone 8-0 with a 1.61 ERA in his last 10 starts. Only blister problems have slowed him down this season.
Aug. 25 12:02 PM PT1:02 PM MT2:02 PM CT3:02 PM ET15:02 ET19:02 GMT3:02 12:02 PM MST2:02 PM EST2:32 PM VEN23:02 UAE2:02 PM CT-Hill had a solid debut for the Dodgers, allowing five hits and striking out three while throwing 81 pitches over six innings in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Giants. The left-hander was making his first appearance since July 17.
Analysis: Hill (1-0) was on the disabled list with a blister on his left middle finger when the Dodgers acquired him from the Oakland Athletics on Aug. 1 along with outfielder Josh Reddick. His next start is Monday at Colorado.
July 21 9:20 AM PT10:20 AM MT11:20 AM CT12:20 PM ET12:20 ET16:20 GMT0:20 9:20 AM MST11:20 AM EST11:50 AM VEN20:20 UAE11:20 AM CT-Hill is slated to make his long-awaited Dodgers debut Wednesday against San Francisco.
Analysis: Hill threw 78 pitches in a simulated game Thursday and reported no problems with the blister issues that have sidelined him since mid-July, when he was then still a member of the A's. The left-hander will remain a risky play until he proves he's completely over his injury problems.
July 20 9:52 AM PT10:52 AM MT11:52 AM CT12:52 PM ET12:52 ET16:52 GMT0:52 9:52 AM MST11:52 AM EST12:22 PM VEN20:52 UAE11:52 AM CT-Hill's status remains in limbo because of a blister on the middle finger of his left hand. Hill left his most recent start Sunday after throwing just five pitches.
Analysis: Hill, who has emerged as one of the most sought-after commodities as the trade deadline approaches, had notched 10 straight quality starts with a 1.86 ERA prior to Sunday.
July 14 1:47 PM PT2:47 PM MT3:47 PM CT4:47 PM ET16:47 ET20:47 GMT4:47 1:47 PM MST3:47 PM EST4:17 PM VEN0:47 UAE (+1)3:47 PM CT-Hill's start Friday was pushed back due to a blister on the middle finger of his left hand, and he gave it a go Sunday but was pulled after five pitches when the blister popped.
Analysis: It was unfortunate timing because Hill has been a subject of trade rumors and there were about a dozen major league scouts in attendance to watch the left-hander. Hill had previously notched 10 straight quality starts with a 1.86 ERA, striking out 71 over 63 innings. It's unclear when his next start will come, though Hill said he'll need at least three or four days to heal.
July 7 7:48 PM PT8:48 PM MT9:48 PM CT10:48 PM ET22:48 ET2:48 GMT10:48 7:48 PM MST9:48 PM EST10:18 PM VEN6:48 UAE (+1)9:48 PM CT-Hill drove up his trade value even higher with another strong outing Thursday in a 3-1 win at Houston. He allowed one run and three hits over six innings with a season high-tying 10 strikeouts.

Apr. 27 8:42 AM PT9:42 AM MT10:42 AM CT11:42 AM ET11:42 ET15:42 GMT23:42 8:42 AM MST10:42 AM EST11:12 AM VEN19:42 UAE10:42 AM CT-Hill tossed seven scoreless innings Tuesday at Detroit to win his second straight start.
