What say yinz'all to bringing back Hill? He likely won't cost much and can probably be counted on to only pitch about 2/3 of a season at best, but with a decent ERA (he's at 4.41 on the season). If he's not inked into the starting day rotation but more as a long relief guy that'll likely have to step in and make some starts, he's fine. But is he worth $5M or so? Isn't this what a good mL system should have? I don't expect Mata to look like Bello, but can he be expected to approximate Rich Hill in '22? That's actually pretty difficult. Both Crawford (who I'm bullish on as a "no. 4" type) and Winckowski (no. 5) should be able to but I think it's a more difficult call than one would first assume.
