Aaron Hill finished 4-for-5 with two RBI in the Diamondbacks' 7-5 comeback win over the Cubs on Wednesday in the 100th anniversary game at Wrigley Field.
Hill's two-run blooper to right field in the top of the ninth inning put the D'Backs ahead for good. It was part of a five-run rally against the Chicago bullpen that quickly lifted Arizona out of a 5-2 deficit. Hill is batting just .240/.284/.385 on the season, but he is capable of getting hot in a hurry. The D'Backs are now 6-18 in 2014. Apr 23 - 5:56 PM

Aaron Hill singled in two runs in the top of the 12th to lead the Diamondbacks to a 4-2 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

The Diamondbacks went ahead in the ninth when Chris Withrow threw a wild pitch on an attempted intentional walk of Martin Prado, allowing the go-ahead run to score from third. The good times were short-lived, though, as Juan Uribe homered off Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth to tie it. That was all for the scoring until the 12th, when Hill delivered the big hit. It was his lone knock in six at-bats for the game.
Apr 19 - 2:44 AM

Aaron Hill singled, doubled, and scored a run in three at-bats against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Hill raised his Cactus League average to .326 in 43 at-bats. Hill suffered a broken hand last season, but seems ready to go with a fresh slate. If he can stay healthy, he should rank among the game's premier power-hitting second basemen once again.

Aaron Hill will not undergo surgery to repair his fractured left hand.

Hill broke the hand back on April 9 and returned to action two months later even though the bone hadn't shown any healing. "They said it’s like 80 percent healed," said Hill. "In the last two months, it’s decided to heal. My last MRI, I think it was two months ago, nothing had changed. (Hand specialist Dr. Don Sheridan) called me yesterday and said, ‘You won’t believe this!’ We didn’t want to do surgery anyway, and now this definitely confirms that we won’t. I was happy to hear that yesterday."

Aaron Hill went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI against the Rockies on Saturday.

Hill has busted out of a little slump with seven hits in his last three games. The homer was his first since Aug. 19 and 10th in 283 at-bats this season.

Aaron Hill delivered a game-winning hit in the bottom of the 10th as the Diamondbacks topped the Padres 10-9 on Tuesday.

Hill shot to the gap probably would have been a double under normal circumstances, though perhaps the center fielder would have run it down if he hadn't been playing in with the winning run on third. Regardless, it got the job done and denied the Padres on a night when Bud Black made 83 position switches. It was Hill's first game back after he missed two starts with a groin injury.

Aaron Hill (groin) walked in a pinch-hit appearance Monday.

Hill was out of the starting lineup for the second straight day after he was forced to leave Saturday's extra-inning marathon against the Phillies with mild tightness in his groin. The good news is that he's expected to return on Tuesday.

Aaron Hill is expected to sit out Sunday due to a hip/groin issue.

Hill evidently suffered the injury at some point during Saturday's 18-inning marathon. It's not clear if the malady might force him to miss more than just the one game.

Aaron Hill had a game-tying single in the ninth and a game-winning single in the 14th as the Diamondbacks beat the Orioles 5-4 on Wednesday.

Hill's ninth-inning hit off Jim Johnson came after Paul Goldschmidt was intentionally walked, putting the winning run on base. In the 14th, Goldschmidt struck out with two on, giving Hill another chance to be the hero. It was Hill's sixth multihit game in his last seven starts. He's hitting .391 with three homers and 12 RBI in 11 games this month.

Aaron Hill went 2-for-5 with four RBI in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Hill had an RBI double in the first inning and hit a three-run shot off Jon Niese in the third. The home run was his seventh of the season and he's now batting .407/.448/.630 over his last 27 at-bats.
Sun, Aug 11, 2013 07:47:00 PM

Aaron Hill (hamstring) finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

Hill was held out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Saturday after leaving Friday's game with tightness in his right hamstring. He should be fine going forward and is likely to be a valuable fantasy asset down the stretch. The second baseman is hitting .272/.338/.478 with five homers and 19 RBI in 38 games this season.

Aaron Hill (hamstring) is not playing Saturday.

It's an expected absence for the Arizona second baseman, who left Friday's game with right hamstring tightness. He should be ready to rock on Sunday afternoon.
Sat, Jul 27, 2013 04:21:00 PM

Aaron Hill (hamstring) is not expected to return to the Diamondbacks' lineup until Sunday.

Hill left Friday's game due to right hamstring tightness, but it's not a major concern. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said he expects to rest Hill on Saturday as a precautionary measure.
Sat, Jul 27, 2013 09:10:00 AM

Aaron Hill was removed from Friday's game against the Padres due to a tight hamstring.

No word the extent of the injury, or how long it may sideline Hill. He was 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles and two RBI before being replaced. Eric Chavez replaced him in the lineup, with Martin Prado shifting to second base.
Fri, Jul 26, 2013 10:33:00 PM

Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and an RBI double in a win over the Cubs on Thursday.

Hill entered Thursday's action with just two hits in 16 at-bats since the All-Star break, so it was nice to see him break out of his funk. The 31-year-old has been a disappointment this season, mostly because of a fractured hand, but he has enough pop to be a top-10 fantasy option at second base the rest of the way.
