News: Hill signed a minor league contract with the Nationals on Friday that includes an invite to spring training.
Impact: Hill will turn 35 in March and owns a 4.72 ERA and 1.39 WHIP for his major league career (471 innings), but he's always been fairly tough on opposing lefties (.216/.337/.335) and the Nationals aren't exactly loaded with bullpen lefties as they are everywhere else. Matt Thornton, Jerry Blevins, Xavier Cedeno and Matt Grace are the team's top southpaw relief options.
