Rich hill wants another season, well, uphill.

Masslive.com reports the 42-year-old Boston Red Sox The lefty wants to return for the 2023 MLB season.

“I think I want to talk it over with (wife) Caitlin and (son) Brice, sit down and talk to them about what the plan is going to be and how we want to move forward,” Hill said. “I have no doubt that the whole season is fully in the plans moving forward. Without the hiccup with the knee, the odd injury, I think all year, I would have been able to make all 32 starts or more. … Obviously, I would love to come back here to Boston and play here. We like it here. I think Chaim (Bloom) and the front office are going to build a winner next year. It’s something that if it works, it works. We will leave the options open as to whether it will be a full season or a half-season.”
