Giants released INF Aaron Hill.
He's now officially a free agent after being designated for assignment. Hill hit just .132/.250/.235 across 80 plate appearances for the Giants and is surely going to have to settle for a minor league contract somewhere. Jun 30 - 8:15 AM

Date:

Giants designated INF Aaron Hill for assignment.

The 35-year-old hit just .132/.250/.235 with one homer, seven RBI and a 13/11 K/BB ratio across 80 plate appearances. This could potentially be the end of the line if other teams aren't willing to take a chance on him on a minor league deal.
Jun 24 - 3:18 PM

Giants activated INF Aaron Hill from the 10-day disabled list.

Hill has been sidelined since late April due to a strained right forearm. He'll resume his utility role with the Giants where he was hitting .120/.241/.240 in 29 plate appearances before landing on the disabled list.
May 26 - 6:51 PM

Aaron Hill (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A San Jose on Tuesday.

He should only need a handful of games before being activated. Hill has been out for the last three weeks with a strained right forearm.
May 15 - 7:26 PM

Aaron Hill (forearm) is close to beginning a rehab assignment.

Hill has been out for the last three weeks with a strained right forearm. He should return before the end of the month.
May 14 - 2:58 PM

Aaron Hill (forearm) is scheduled for an MRI.

Hill was placed on the disabled list with a right forearm strain on April 24. His timetable for return remains unclear, though this MRI figures to help shed some light on just how long he might be out of commission.
May 3 - 8:47 PM

Giants placed INF/OF Aaron Hill on the 10-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.

It's not clear when Hill suffered the injury or how long he'll be out. He had been operating as a utility player for the Giants, getting some playing time at second base, third base and left field.
Apr 24 - 6:52 PM

Aaron Hill homered and walked Thursday in his first start for the Giants.

Hill played second base tonight before moving to left field late in the game. It sounds like he could get a start in left on Friday.
Apr 7 - 1:44 AM

Giants purchased the contract of INF/OF Aaron Hill from Triple-A Sacramento.

Hill hit just .250/.316/.346 this spring but added to his versatility by showing he can play the outfield. He'll be used in a utility role.
Apr 2 - 2:35 PM

Aaron Hill earned a $100,000 retention bonus on Tuesday.

Beat writer Andrew Baggarly considers it a "firm" sign that Hill will be on the Giants' Opening Day roster. The 35-year-old should play a utility role for the Giants and could wind up platooning with Joe Panik at second base. Hill has hit .255 over 47 Cactus League at-bats this spring.
Mar 28 - 2:57 PM

Aaron Hill was 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored Monday versus the Reds.

Hill, a non-roster invitee, plated a run with a single in the first inning and had a two-run double in the Giants’ seven-run fourth. The 35-year-old has been relatively quiet at the plate recently, but he brings more versatility to the table than Jae-gyun Hwang. He should begin the year with a bench spot.
Mar 27 - 6:54 PM

Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored in Monday’s 3-2 victory over the split-squad Indians on Monday.

Rejoice. The Giants’ eight-game spring losing streak is over. Signed to a minor league deal last month, Hill is now 5-for-15 (.333) through six games this spring. The veteran infielder is making a strong early push for a bench spot.
Mar 6 - 5:55 PM

Giants signed INF Aaron Hill to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

ESPN's Buster Olney says Hill will make $2 million if in the majors, with a possible $1 million more available in incentives. Hill, who will turn 35 next month, batted .262/.336/.378 with 10 home runs last season for the Brewers and Red Sox. He can play both second and third base and will compete for a bench job with the Giants, but the veteran infielder isn't going to have any fantasy value.
Feb 17 - 10:22 AM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe named the Braves and Royals as two teams who could have interest in free agent Aaron Hill.

Both teams are known to be looking for infield depth. Hill wouldn't be a splashy signing but he's a good clubhouse guy and still has some pop in his bat. The 34-year-old hit .262 with 10 HR and 38 RBI over 125 games for Milwaukee and Boston this past season. He can play both second and third base.

Jan 7 - 10:36 PM

Aaron Hill went 0-for-3 in the loss to the Rays on Thursday and is hitting .202/.268/.258 since joining the Red Sox on July 7.

The Red Sox bought in to Hill's fluky first half when they sent two prospects the Brewers way for his services, and they're living to regret it. He should be limited to starting against lefties the rest of the way; there's no excuse for having him in the lineup against a righty like Jake Odorizzi.
