No. 4 Rich Hill

Rich Hill thrived in the first half of the 2023 season with a 7-10 record and a 4.76 ERA. In those 22 games, he went deep into many games and helped the Pirates achieve a winning record to start the season. After getting traded to the Padres, he played in 7 games, 5 of which he started, but struggled massively with a 9.27 ERA and an 0-4 record. Rich Hill would be going into his 20th season; he is more of a piece that you would use a lot and then trade him at the deadline.
