The blister forced Hill out of his start on Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks after giving up two runs, five hits and two walks in three innings.
Analysis: With the 37-year-old Hill on the disabled list, Alex Wood is expected to make Hill's next start on Sunday, also against the Diamondbacks. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Hill is continuing to throw with a Band-Aid on the finger, but the team will consider whether to shut Hill down completely to allow the issue to be resolved.

Analysis: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts gave Hill the hook after only 75 pitches, an indication that the team will be careful with the 37-year-old after he dealt with several nagging injuries a year ago. Hill has been rock-solid when he does take the mound, sporting a 4-2 record and a 1.83 ERA in seven regular-season starts since being acquired by Los Angeles from Oakland in August.
