Career highlights

Hill was called up by the injury-plagued St. Louis Cardinals in 1989, had a good first start, and went downhill from that point. He finished that season with a 7-15 record and a decent 3.80 ERA. He wouldn't see a decent season until 1991, going 11-10 with a 3.57 ERA. In November 1991, he was traded to the Montreal Expos for first-baseman Andres Galarraga. It was as a member of these Expos that Hill found his groove.
