LHP Hill returns to Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox signed left-hander Rich Hill to a minor league contract on Friday that included an invitation to spring training.

If Hill lands a spot on the Red Sox's opening day roster, the reliever will make $840,000 with the potential to make an additional $500,000 in appearances bonuses, the New York Post reported.

The 33-year-old reliever rejoins the Red Sox after pitching for the Cleveland Indians last year. He posted a 1-2 record with a 6.28 ERA in 63 outings spanning 38 2/3 innings for the Tribe.

In three seasons with the Red Sox from 2010 to 2012, Hill appeared in 40 games out of the bullpen and went 2-0 with a 1.14 ERA.

Hill began his major league career with the Chicago Cubs in 2005 and was 18-17 with a 4.37 ERA while starting 57 of 64 games in which he appeared. He also started a National League Division Series playoff game for the Cubs in 2007 against the Arizona Diamondbacks and took the loss.
