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.

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.

Aaron Hill (forearm) singled and drew a walk in his return to action Thursday.

Hill didn't play for a couple days due to some forearm tightness, but he should be fine. He's batting just .234/.298/.299 since joining the Red Sox.

Aaron Hill was scratched from the Red Sox lineup Tuesday due to forearm tightness.

Brock Holt will start at third base instead versus the Orioles. Hill is considered day-to-day.
Tue, Aug 16, 2016 07:06:00 PM

Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with two RBI in his first game with the Red Sox on Friday.

Hill started at third base and batted eighth in the order. It remains to be seen how much playing time he will get with his new team but he got off to a good start tonight. After a couple of very bad seasons in Arizona, Hill has been rejuvenated this year in Milwaukee and now Boston. He is batting .287/.361/.422 with eight home runs.
Fri, Jul 8, 2016 10:55:00 PM

Red Sox acquired INF Aaron Hill and cash from the Brewers in exchange for RHP Aaron Wilkerson and 2B Wendell Rijo.

This won't solve Boston's pitching woes but Hill gives the Red Sox a solid right-handed bat. With Dustin Pedroia entrenched at second base, Hill will probably see most of his time at the hot corner. Hill's presence could mean fewer at-bats for Travis Shaw, who has struggled after getting off to a hot start. With Hill out of the mix in Milwaukee, Will Middlebrooks and Hernan Perez will likely split time at third base. Hill carries a .283 average through 254 at-bats this year with eight homers, 29 RBI and four steals.

Aaron Hill went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Hill singled in the Brewers' first run in the third and his two-run shot in the seventh inning extended the Brewers' lead. The veteran infielder has rather quietly had a very good season, batting .284/.360/.424 with eight homers. He's hitting .355 over his last 16 contests.
Tue, Jul 5, 2016 10:18:00 PM

Aaron Hill is not in the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

Hill's bat has gone dormant over the last eight games. He's hit just .154 during that span with only one extra-base hit. He'll take a seat with Hernan Perez getting the start at third base.
