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

Date:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Jul 2, 2015 01:04:00 AM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Nationals are interested in the Diamondbacks' middle infield depth.

He doesn't say which player(s) specifically they might be targeting, but Aaron Hill, Chris Owings, Nick Ahmed and Cliff Pennington are the options. Hill would probably make the most sense, as the D'Backs have been trying to trade him for a while. The 33-year-old hasn't been very good this season, hitting .236/.301/.338 with three homers.

Aaron Hill (flu) is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday but he will be available off the bench.

Hill hasn't played since Wednesday but he seems to be feeling better. Yasmany Tomas will draw another start at third base. All signs point to Hill starting Sunday's series finale against the Phillies.
Sat, May 16, 2015 06:54:00 PM

Aaron Hill is currently dealing with the flu.

Hill had to make an early exit from Wednesday's game due to illness and still hasn't recovered. It's not clear whether he'll be available off the bench Friday.
Fri, May 15, 2015 04:59:00 PM

Aaron Hill finished 4-for-5 with a home run and four RBI as the Diamondbacks defeated the Rockies 13-7 in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Hill lined out to center in his first at-bat, but he singled in the third, slugged a three-run blast in the fourth, singled again in the sixth, and then plated Arizona's 12th run of the game with an RBI single in the eighth. The veteran infielder is still batting just .246/.281/.377 on the season, but maybe his bat is finally starting to wake up. He started at second base Wednesday.
Wed, May 6, 2015 06:56:00 PM

Aaron Hill's rough start to the 2015 season continued on Sunday as he went hitless in a losing effort against the Pirates.

He finished the afternoon 0-for-2 and left two men stranded. If the Diamondbacks are hoping to build his trade value and then flip him elsewhere, his atrocious .156/.208/.200 slash certainly isn't helping their cause.
Sun, Apr 26, 2015 07:35:00 PM

Aaron Hill is starting at third base for the Diamondbacks on Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Yasmany Tomas got the nod there Tuesday, but it will probably be Hill's job for the most part while Jake Lamb (foot) is out. Tomas played poor defense at the hot corner all spring and he looked bad there on a couple chances Tuesday night. He had only been playing left field at Triple-A Reno.
