Debut Details
May 27, in a 5-4, 10-inning loss to the Pirates. The losing pitcher, he was the sixth of seven pitchers on the night, allowing one run on one hit in two-thirds of an inning and walking one while also hitting a batter. Coming on to start the bottom of the 10th inning with the score tied at 4-4 in relief of right-handed reliever Addison Reed, he retired Gregory Polanco on a fly ball to center before giving up a single to right to David Freese. He then hit Andrew McCutchen with a pitch, and walked Francisco Cervelli to load the bases with one out. Gift Ngoepe then flew out to shallow right, leaving the bases loaded with two outs at which point Pill was replaced by left-handed reliever Josh Edgin. Edgin gave up a single to right by John Jaso which scored Freese and ended the game.

Player Notes
Originally drafted out of Cal State-Fullerton where he'd been a two-way player, boasting a 90-mph fastball but also hitting .354 with a .535 SLG and seven homers as an outfielder in 2010, Pill is the younger brother of former MLB player Brett Pill. Though he doesn't possess overwhelming stuff, he has ridden the Double-A/Triple-A shuttle between Binghamton and Las Vegas for each of the four seasons (including 2017), and has combined for an overall 42-30 record and 4.01 ERA in his career. He missed much of 2013 due to shoulder surgery but when healthy, he is a workhorse who led the system in 2016 in both innings and starts, going a combined 10-11 in 27 starts (including his only three career complete games), allowing 179 hits in 166 innings and striking out 132 while walking 40 and posting a 4.28 ERA.
