Padres Sign Shawn Hill

According to Chico Harlan of the Washington Post, the Padres signed pitcher Shawn Hill to a minor league deal.  Hill was released by the Nationals on Wednesday and also drew interest from the Blue Jays.  San Diego is a great match, as he'll presumably have a rotation spot if healthy.  A bonus for the Padres: they'll have the chance to keep Hill under team control through 2012 as an arbitration-eligible player.
