    Manager Dave Roberts said Hill will start Game 4 of the NLDS should it be necessary, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Impact

    Hill won't be cleared for a full workload, as Roberts indicated the lefty would be expected to throw about four innings. The veteran covered three innings during his final outing of the regular season Sunday, so it's no surprise he'd be on a pitch count. Game 4 is scheduled for Monday, so Hill could also make a brief appearance out of the bullpen Thursday or Friday.

    Hill pitched three scoreless innings and let up just one hit while striking out four and walking two in the Dodgers' 9-0 win over the Giants on Sunday. Hill did not factor into the decision.

    Impact

    Hill ended the regular season on a high note as the veteran left-hander pitched five scoreless innings and had nine strikeouts over two outings. Hill has decent playoff experience and should line up as the team's fourth starter for their championship run. The 39-year-old finishes the regular season with a 2.45 ERA and a 72:18 K:BB through 58.2 innings this season.

    Hill (knee) tossed an encouraging bullpen session Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    Manager Dave Roberts described the bullpen session as "electric" and indicated that Hill will start Sunday as planned with a target of three innings. Should the southpaw emerge from that outing without suffering any setbacks, he has an excellent chance of making the postseason roster. If that happens, Hill could start a potential fourth game in the NLDS, though he would be on a limited pitch count.

    News

    Hill (knee) is expected to pitch three innings and make around 45 pitches against the Giants on Sunday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Impact

    Hill threw a strong two-inning outing against the Padres on Tuesday, striking out five and holding San Diego hitless and scoreless over two innings. Despite moments during which Hill appeared to be in physical pain on the mound and while covering first base, the 39-year-old made it through the outing without suffering any setbacks and even logged a double in his only plate appearance. While it was a positive step in Hill's quest to make the NLDS roster as a potential Game 4 starter, he'll need to pass one more test Sunday to prove he's physically capable of contributing in the postseason.

    News

    Hill threw two innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Tuesday, striking out five and walking two while giving up no hits as the Dodgers eventually prevailed 6-3.

    Impact

    The Dodgers gave Hill two innings in his first appearance back from the injured list with a knee injury, and he looked sharp in striking out five of the seven batters he faced. Health is always the question mark with Hill, but the 39-year-old has performed when he's been on the field this season with a 2.59 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 12 starts.
