The left-hander was making his first appearance since July 17.

Analysis: Hill threw 78 pitches in a simulated game Thursday and reported no problems with the blister issues that have sidelined him since mid-July, when he was then still a member of the A's. The left-hander will remain a risky play until he proves he's completely over his injury problems.

It's unclear when his next start will come, though Hill said he'll need at least three or four days to heal.
