The moment has arrived for Rich Hill, who has officially been activated from the disabled list to start tonight for the first time as a Dodger.

Mike Petriello of has a good piece today outlining Hill’s virtues and why the Dodgers sought him out, even though they knew his debut would be delayed.

Rob Segedin’s placement on the paternity list created the roster opening for Hill’s activation. MLB paternity leave lasts from one to three games.

Hill’s only career appearance at Dodger Stadium came on May 27, 2007, when he threw six shutout innings for the Cubs, who lost in 11 innings, 2-1 (on Juan Pierre’s bases-loaded hit-by-pitch).

Wouldn’t be shocked to see Culberson sent back down when Segedin is re-activated. Thinking that Urias needs to stay up to make the start on Saturday, and they’ll want to also keep Avilan and Dayton around as more in pen are better then extra bench player with the rotation in the state it’s in.
