As quoted in the Sun-Times today:
Hill gets mental break
The Cubs have pulled left-hander Rich Hill from the rotation at Class AAA Iowa and sent him to Mesa, Ariz., where he'll work on mechanics in side sessions. The team has no timetable for a return to competition, Hendry said.
Hill, expected by many to have a breakout season, struggled with command since spring training and hadn't improved since an early-May demotion to Iowa.
So what do the Cubs do with Hill? How does a baseball team help a likeable and talented guy like Rich Hill with his mental problems?
And are they're any examples in the recent past of the Cubs being able to help a guy get over a major mental hurtle like this?
I like Hill, feel bad for him and hope he can get back to contributing at the major league level.
