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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aaron Hill continued his power surge against the Reds on Friday, blasting a pair of home runs in a 9-5 victory.

Hill registered the first and only three homer game of his career earlier in the month against this same Reds pitching staff. Hill tagged starter John Lamb for a solo homer that tied the game at 3-3 in the fourth inning, then replicated the feat in the fifth. Hill also singled in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-4 to raise his season slash up to .271/.340/.443 to go along with six homers and 19 RBI.

Aaron Hill had a single, three walks, two runs scored and a stolen base Saturday against the Mets.

Hill was a thorn in the side of starter Jacob deGrom and the Mets bullpen all day, reaching base in all four plate appearances. The stolen base was his third of the season in four tries. Hill has enjoyed a small resurgence as a member of the Brewers this season, batting .252/.321/.390 with four homers, 17 RBI and 13 runs scored in 40 games.

Aaron Hill stayed hot Tuesday, going 3-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Marlins.

The Brewers managed to score 10 runs while recording just two extra-base hits. Hill had both of them, as he doubled twice, which included a two-run two-bagger in the sixth. The veteran infielder batted just .169 in April but is sporting a .414 average so far in May.

Aaron Hill destroyed the universe in Saturday's 13-7 win over the Reds, hitting three home runs and finishing with seven RBI.

Hill finished the game 3-for-5, with all three hits leaving the yard. He hit his first, a two-run shot, against Reds starter Brandon Finnegan in the sixth inning. Next up, a solo dinger in the eighth. Those two homers were just window dressing for what he did in the 10th, though. The veteran third baseman snapped a 6-6 tie in the most impressive manner possible -- with a grand slam. Reliever Caleb Catham will probably need a day or two to forget that one. It was a stellar overall game, but fantasy owners need not rush to the waiver wire here. Hill entered Saturday's contest slashing just .224/.266/.282 with one home run and eight RBI over 85 at-bats. The last time he hit more than 11 homers in a season was in 2012.

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.
