Dodgers' Rich Hill goes on 10-day DL with inflammation in finger

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed left-hander Rich Hill on the 10-day disabled list with inflammation in the middle finger of his pitching hand.

The move is retroactive to Sunday, the day after Hill made his last start. In that game, a 9-1 Dodgers loss, Hill gave up seven earned runs over five innings of work.

In a corresponding roster move, the Dodgers recalled lefty Adam Liberatore from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Hill, 38, has a history of finger issues; this is the fourth time since he joined the Dodgers in 2016 that he has gone on the DL because of a problem with one of his fingers. The Dodgers say Hill's injury is not related to the blisters he has dealt with in the past.

Clayton Kershawwill move up a day and start in Hill's place Friday against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals, manager Dave Roberts confirmed Wednesday night.

Hill is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA in three starts this season.
