Robert Murray of MLBDailyRumors.com reports that the Diamondbacks are "getting trade calls" regarding Aaron Hill.
Murray adds that it's "unclear who has expressed interest in Hill, but at least a few teams have come calling about him." CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported earlier this month that the D'Backs were shopping Hill, so this comes as no surprise. With the club considering going with Nick Ahmed at shortstop and Chris Owings at second base, they'd probably be better off moving Hill if they can find a taker. He's owed $24 million through the end of next season. Mar 29 - 10:31 AM

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Diamondbacks are shopping Aaron Hill, Cody Ross, and Trevor Cahill.

D'Backs general manager Dave Stewart has denied Heyman's source, for what that's worth. Hill was very good in 2012 and 2013, but he had a rough 2014 season and is owed a total of $24 million in 2015-2016. These aren't exactly blockbuster trade chips for the Diamondbacks, who are rebuilding under new chief baseball officer Tony La Russa.

Aaron Hill (finger) is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Friday.

Hill suffered a dislocated right pinkie finger while sliding into home plate on Monday and has yet to rejoin the D'Backs lineup. He's considered day-to-day, but there's a strong chance that they decide to play it safe and shut him down for the remainder of the season.

Aaron Hill suffered a dislocated right pinkie finger on a slide into home plate Monday.

Players can sometimes play through a dislocated finger, but this late in the year it could certainly be a season-ending injury. The Diamondbacks are officially listing Hill as day-to-day.

Aaron Hill will start at third base Thursday against the Padres.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson hinted at the possibility late last month and now Hill will get his first test in game action. He hasn't played third base since his rookie season in 2005, but the D-Backs want to make room for Chris Owings and Didi Gregorius in the middle infield.

Aaron Hill went 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored to lead the Diamondbacks past the Rockies 6-2 on Sunday.

Hill had an RBI single in the first inning and later contributed an RBI double in the seventh. He also hit his third triple of the season in the win, falling a home run short of the cycle. Despite the big day, Hill has had a season to forget -- he's hitting .244/.284/.373 overall.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson indicated Sunday that Aaron Hill will see more time at third base over the remainder of the season.

That will be done to make room for both Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings in the middle infield once Owings is ready to go. Hill has struggled this season, hitting just .241/.280/.369 with 10 homers and 55 RBI in his 117 contests.

Aaron Hill clubbed a two-run homer Friday against the Marlins.

Hill is now up to 10 home runs on the year. The impending free agent is batting just .247/.286/.379 through 112 games this season and has received time off in recent days to rest some bumps and bruises, but there's still a chance he could be moved in a waiver trade this month.

Aaron Hill went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Hill missed back-to-back starts after being hit on the right hand by a pitch Saturday, but he's ready to go now. The 32-year-old could be traded before Thursday's deadline.
Wed, Jul 30, 2014 05:44:00 AM

Aaron Hill (hand) flew out as a pinch-hitter Monday.

Hill left Saturday's game after he was hit on the right hand with a pitch and has missed back-to-back starts since, but he's expected to return to the lineup Tuesday. The 32-year-old could be a trade target this week.
Tue, Jul 29, 2014 03:47:00 AM

Aaron Hill (hand) is expected back in the lineup on Tuesday.

Hill has missed the last two games after being hit on the right hand by a pitch Saturday, but he's feeling much better. The second baseman had heated up at the plate of late, batting .410/.442/.718 with a couple homers during a 10-game hit streak.

Aaron Hill (hand) is out of Monday's lineup against the Reds.

Hill left Saturday's game after he was hit on the right hand with a pitch and will now miss his second straight start. He is available off the bench Monday, so it sounds like he'll be ready to go soon.
Mon, Jul 28, 2014 04:19:00 PM

Aaron Hill (hand) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

Hill had to exit Saturday's contest following a hit by pitch on his right hand. X-rays came back negative, but he's obviously still a bit sore. Consider him day-to-day. Didi Gregorius is at second base Sunday in Hill's place.

Aaron Hill had a nice night at the dish in Friday’s loss to the Phillies, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run scored.

A popular name in trade rumblings, the veteran infielder may be donning a new jersey at this time next week. With the three-hit effort, he is slashing .255/.289/.390 with eight homers and 48 RBI on the year.
Fri, Jul 25, 2014 10:37:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are "looking to trade" Aaron Hill.

It appears that they're much more likely to move Hill than Martin Prado, as Heyman says the club is "barely listening" to inquiries on Prado. Hill is batting .251 with eight homers and 49 RBI in a down season and is still owed $28 million through 2016, so Arizona probably wouldn't receive a whole lot in return.
