After a meeting with Dr. Don Sheridan and a radiologist Tuesday, it was determined that Hill could start to proceed with activity.
The plan is for him to do strengthening exercises for the hand, followed by swinging a bat and he will be evaluated over the next two weeks to see how it responds.
Hill was hitting .306 with an on-base plus slugging mark of .960 when he was hit on the hand by a James McDonald fastball. He briefly tried to play again after X-rays were negative, but continued to have discomfort. A CT scan taken showed a small fracture.
