Pitcher Rich Hill, who was traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the San Diego Padres along with Choi Ji-Man, said he intends to play next year.

“I have every intention of playing in 2024,” the 43-year-old said, according to MLB.com’s Justice Delos Santos.

Hill, who is in his 19th MLB season, became the oldest player in MLB when Albert Pujols retired last season.

Hill’s velocity has declined, but his ability to get batters out hasn’t.

Hill, who specializes in inducing ground balls, has a 4.25 ERA in 79 starts over the past three years.

His performance over the next two months will determine where he’ll be next year, but he’s expected to sign a one-year deal rather than a multi-year deal.온라인카지노

It’s not uncommon for MLB pitchers to stay active well into their mid-40s in the 21st century. Bartolo Colon, Tim Wakefield, and Roger Clemens all pitched until age 45, while Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson, and Jesse Orozco played until age 46.
