Rich Hill (elbow) will move up to Double-A Portland to make his third rehab appearance Friday.
Hill made a couple appearances with the Red Sox’ Gulf Coast League club, with manager Bobby Valentine saying the lefty “threw the ball well” the last time out, when he tossed a scoreless inning with two strikeouts. “He still needs some time, but he had no negative aftereffects from what I gather,?? Valentine added. Hill is hoping to rejoin the big club next month.
