News: Hill was released by the Nationals on Wednesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Hill was assigned to Triple-A Syracuse after failing to make the Nats' Opening Day roster, and he went on to post a 2.91 ERA with 32 strikeouts across 21.2 innings with the affiliate. He'll look to catch on with another team in hopes of returning to the big leagues after making a combined 16 MLB appearances for the Angels and Yankees in 2014.

News: Hill is in a battle with Xavier Cedeno for the final spot in the Nationals' bullpen, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Cedeno is out of options and would have to clear waivers to get sent to Triple-A, which likely gives him an edge, but Hill has been the slightly more effective pitcher this spring. Whoever wins the job will primarily be used as a LOOGY, and would have limited fantasy value.
