    Rich Hill scratched from Wednesday’s start against the Rockies

    Dodgers lefty Rich Hill was supposed to start Tuesday’s game against the Rockies but the game was postponed due to rain and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday. Hill will no longer make his scheduled start on Wednesday due to a recurring blister issue, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. Bud Norris will start instead, but manager Dave Roberts expects it to be a “bullpen game.” Hill came to the Dodgers, along with outfielder Josh Reddick, from the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline.

    Shelby Miller will return to D-Backs’ rotation on Wednesday

    Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Shelby Miller will return to the Diamondbacks’ starting rotation on Wednesday to start against the Giants at AT&T Field. Miller had an abysmal first half of the season, which included a stint on the disabled list with a finger injury caused by his follow-through. In 14 starts with the D-Backs this season, Miller put up a 7.14 ERA with a 50/34 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings. Miller was demoted to Triple-A Reno and made his first start shortly after the All-Star break.

    Cam Bedrosian weighing surgery to remove a blood clot

    Angels reliever Cam Bedrosian will take the next few days to decide whether or not to undergo surgery to remove a blood clot naer his right armpit, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. The alternative is to treat the clot with blood-thinners and rest. Bedrosian, 24, hasn’t pitched since blowing a save against the Athletics on August 3, shortly after he took over the closer’s role from the injured Huston Street. Bedrosian was diagnosed with flexor tendinitis in the middle finger of his throwing hand about a week later. Overall, Bedrosian — the son of former major league closer Steve — has had an outstanding season, compiling a 1.12 ERA with a 51/14 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings.
