After car accident, Hill has wrist surgery

December 1st, 2020

CLEVELAND -- Indians reliever took to Instagram on Tuesday morning to provide a less-than-ideal update.

The 26-year-old revealed he was in a car accident on Monday, posting a picture of himself laying in a hospital bed with his right wrist wrapped up, in addition to photos of his totaled car. The Indians provided an update on Tuesday afternoon, saying Hill underwent right wrist surgery by hand specialist Dr. Brian Chalkin in Tulsa, Okla., to address the injury to his lunate bone, which is located in the mid-carpal joint.

Hill made his debut on July 26 this past season and owned a 4.91 ERA in 18 appearances with 16 strikeouts and a 0.873 WHIP in 18 1/3 frames. His surgery was successful, and the Tribe is still working out more details on his rehab plan or the time frame for his return to play.
