Cardinals add a lefty

A familiar name will be coming to Cardinals camp next month.

Left-hander Rich Hill, who spent the first four years of his big league career with the Cubs, agreed Tuesday to a Minor League contract with a non-roster invitation to Spring Training. Hill, who will turn 30 in March, pitched for the Orioles in 2009.
He had been one of the more promising young lefties around, going 11-8 with a 3.92 ERA and 183 strikeouts for Chicago in 2007. But Hill’s control deserted him in 2008, as he walked 62 batters in 67 1/3 innings between the Majors and Minors.
Those difficulties continued into 2009, before he shut it down for the year due to injury. Hill underwent shoulder surgery in August.
