Red Sox P Rich Hill likely out at least a month

Boston Red Sox reliever Rich Hill’s latest elbow problem has

been diagnosed as a strained flexor muscle, and he’s expected to be

sidelined for at least a month.

Hill, a left-hander who had Tommy John surgery on the elbow a

year ago, went on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and was examined

by a doctor Monday.

Hill (1-0) has made 17 relief appearances this season and has an

ERA of 2.63 ERA over 13 2-3 innings.
