Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and his first home run of the season in Wednesday's 10-5 victory over the Twins.
It's been a shaky start for Hill, who's hitting .186/.239/.256 on the year. Wednesday night brought some positives, though. Aside from the solo home run -- his first extra-base hit of the year -- the 34-year-old veteran almost hit another homer in the second inning, but Twins' center fielder Eddie Rosario ran it down at the warning track. He also singled and stole his second base. He'll continue to get at-bats because the Brewers don't have any other good options at third base; just don't expect them to be too productive.

Date:

Aaron Hill is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

Colin Walsh will make the start at third base and bat leadoff against Ervin Santana. Hill has struggled to the tune of a .154/.214/.154 batting line through his first 13 games this season.
Apr 19 - 10:58 AM

Aaron Hill managed to get on base three times on Saturday against the Pirates, walking twice and singling to left field.

The Brewers agreed to take on Hill's contract in the Jean Segura trade in order to acquire infield prospect Isan Diaz, and even though he's not a long-term option at the position, Milwaukee hoped he'd find a spark and inflate his non-existent trade value. After going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks, a bona fide offensive outburst for Hill, he's hitting .182/.250/.182. It's becoming clear that he's just keeping third base warm until Orlando Arcia gets the call and Jonathan Villar shifts over to third. Don't worry about him in fantasy.
Apr 16 - 10:39 PM

Aaron Hill is 3-for-27 with no extra-base hits this season after going 0-for-3 on Thursday.

Hill was an awful player in 2014 and not all that much better last year, but the Brewers handed him a starting job anyway, not even forcing him to compete for it this spring. Of course, there alternatives aren't very good, either. Will Middlebrooks was supposed to be the top fallback, but he struggled this spring and is off to a lousy start in Triple-A. So, Hill will get a chance to turn things around.

Aaron Hill went 0-for-2 in Saturday's loss to the Angels, dropping his Cactus League average to .179.

He did walk twice in the contest, but his spring OPS is just .495. Acquired in a trade with the Diamondbacks in January, Hill is expected to be the team's everyday third baseman. The Brewers aren't going anywhere fast, so it may behoove them to roll with the veteran in hopes he establishes some trade value, but they may eventually find a better option if his struggles continue into April.
Mar 19 - 8:32 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell considers Aaron Hill the favorite to start at third base this season.

"Aaron is going to spend quite a bit of time there, especially in the spring," said Counsell. "How the season plays out, you're a little more open to but now I'm thinking Aaron at third base." Hill logged 33 starts at third base last year compared to 38 at second base. His primary competition at third will come from former Red Sox infielders Will Middlebrooks and Garin Cecchini.
Feb 22 - 1:15 PM

The Associated Press reports that the Diamondbacks are sending $6.5 million to the Brewers as part of the trade that sent Aaron Hill to Milwaukee.

That means the Brewers will be responsible for $5.5 million of the $12 million Hill is owed in 2016, and they also subtracted $2.6 million in parting with Jean Segura. Hill should compete for the third base job with the Brew Crew and also see time at second base versus lefties.
Feb 1 - 4:31 PM

Brewers acquired 2B Aaron Hill, RHP Chase Anderson and SS Isan Diaz from Diamondbacks for SS Jean Segura and RHP Tyler Wagner.

The D'Backs will pay at least a portion of Hill's $12 million salary. It's a smart move for the Brewers, who didn't have much use for Segura anymore with top shortstop prospect Orlando Arcia expected to arrive sometime in 2016. Just as he did last season in Arizona, Hill will likely split time between second and third base. The 34-year-old's contract expires after 2016.
Jan 30 - 7:00 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are "trying to trade" Aaron Hill.

Hill is owed $12 million in 2016, which is a tough sell for a guy who's batted .238/.290/.359 over the last two seasons and who will turn 34 in March. The D'Backs undoubtedly would have to eat most of what the veteran infielder is owed in order to move him. The Diamondbacks could pursue Howie Kendrick if they're able to consummate a trade of Hill, although they've expressed hesitancy over forfeiting a draft pick to sign Kendrick.
Jan 24 - 12:38 PM

Aaron Hill (hamstring) returned to the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Friday.

Hill hadn't started a game for the D'Backs in the last two weeks due to a lingering hamstring strain. He's hitting just .233/.300/.338 with five long balls and 36 RBI in what has been a disappointing season for the veteran infielder.
Fri, Sep 18, 2015 07:57:00 PM

Aaron Hill (hamstring) lined out as a pinch-hitter in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

Hill hasn't started a game for the Diamondbacks in over two weeks because of a left hamstring strain, but he's obviously pretty close. The veteran infielder is batting just .233/.300/.338 with five home runs and 36 RBI in 104 games this season for Arizona.
Thu, Sep 17, 2015 08:37:00 AM

Aaron Hill (hamstring) could be ready to return to the lineup by Friday.

Hill hasn't played in over a week due to a left hamstring strain. He was available off the bench on Tuesday, though and might be ready to start by this weekend.
Wed, Sep 9, 2015 08:23:00 AM

Aaron Hill exited the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Rockies with a left hamstring injury.

Hill has dealt with a sore hammy of late and aggravated it while legging out a double Tuesday. He's not going to go on the disabled list with rosters expanded, but Hill would figure to be unavailable for at least a few days.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 10:54:00 PM

Aaron Hill went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's lopsided win over the Phillies.

Hill hit a two-run homer in the Diamondbacks' 11-run second inning. Hill actually scored two runs in the inning. The second baseman has been largely disappointing this year, hitting just .225/.294/.339 with five homers in 86 games.
Wed, Aug 12, 2015 02:00:00 AM

Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Hill connected for his fourth homer of the season when he launched a Brett Anderson offering into the seats in the sixth inning. He also chipped in with a sacrifice fly in the eighth to push his overall RBI total for the season to an even 20. Hill is a possible candidate for trade as we enter July, though his .224/.284/.333 slashline makes one wonder what, if anything, the Diamondbacks could get in return for the 33-year-old infielder.
