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.
May 21 - 9:55 PM

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.
May 10 - 11:54 PM

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.
May 7 - 11:37 PM

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.
Apr 21 - 12:42 AM

Aaron Hill is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

Colin Walsh will make the start at third base and bat leadoff against Ervin Santana. Hill has struggled to the tune of a .154/.214/.154 batting line through his first 13 games this season.
Apr 19 - 10:58 AM

Aaron Hill managed to get on base three times on Saturday against the Pirates, walking twice and singling to left field.

The Brewers agreed to take on Hill's contract in the Jean Segura trade in order to acquire infield prospect Isan Diaz, and even though he's not a long-term option at the position, Milwaukee hoped he'd find a spark and inflate his non-existent trade value. After going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks, a bona fide offensive outburst for Hill, he's hitting .182/.250/.182. It's becoming clear that he's just keeping third base warm until Orlando Arcia gets the call and Jonathan Villar shifts over to third. Don't worry about him in fantasy.
Apr 16 - 10:39 PM

Aaron Hill is 3-for-27 with no extra-base hits this season after going 0-for-3 on Thursday.

Hill was an awful player in 2014 and not all that much better last year, but the Brewers handed him a starting job anyway, not even forcing him to compete for it this spring. Of course, there alternatives aren't very good, either. Will Middlebrooks was supposed to be the top fallback, but he struggled this spring and is off to a lousy start in Triple-A. So, Hill will get a chance to turn things around.
Apr 14 - 4:58 PM

Aaron Hill went 0-for-2 in Saturday's loss to the Angels, dropping his Cactus League average to .179.

He did walk twice in the contest, but his spring OPS is just .495. Acquired in a trade with the Diamondbacks in January, Hill is expected to be the team's everyday third baseman. The Brewers aren't going anywhere fast, so it may behoove them to roll with the veteran in hopes he establishes some trade value, but they may eventually find a better option if his struggles continue into April.
Mar 19 - 8:32 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell considers Aaron Hill the favorite to start at third base this season.

"Aaron is going to spend quite a bit of time there, especially in the spring," said Counsell. "How the season plays out, you're a little more open to but now I'm thinking Aaron at third base." Hill logged 33 starts at third base last year compared to 38 at second base. His primary competition at third will come from former Red Sox infielders Will Middlebrooks and Garin Cecchini.
Feb 22 - 1:15 PM

The Associated Press reports that the Diamondbacks are sending $6.5 million to the Brewers as part of the trade that sent Aaron Hill to Milwaukee.

That means the Brewers will be responsible for $5.5 million of the $12 million Hill is owed in 2016, and they also subtracted $2.6 million in parting with Jean Segura. Hill should compete for the third base job with the Brew Crew and also see time at second base versus lefties.
Feb 1 - 4:31 PM

Brewers acquired 2B Aaron Hill, RHP Chase Anderson and SS Isan Diaz from Diamondbacks for SS Jean Segura and RHP Tyler Wagner.

The D'Backs will pay at least a portion of Hill's $12 million salary. It's a smart move for the Brewers, who didn't have much use for Segura anymore with top shortstop prospect Orlando Arcia expected to arrive sometime in 2016. Just as he did last season in Arizona, Hill will likely split time between second and third base. The 34-year-old's contract expires after 2016.
Jan 30 - 7:00 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are "trying to trade" Aaron Hill.

Hill is owed $12 million in 2016, which is a tough sell for a guy who's batted .238/.290/.359 over the last two seasons and who will turn 34 in March. The D'Backs undoubtedly would have to eat most of what the veteran infielder is owed in order to move him. The Diamondbacks could pursue Howie Kendrick if they're able to consummate a trade of Hill, although they've expressed hesitancy over forfeiting a draft pick to sign Kendrick.
Jan 24 - 12:38 PM

Aaron Hill (hamstring) returned to the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Friday.

Hill hadn't started a game for the D'Backs in the last two weeks due to a lingering hamstring strain. He's hitting just .233/.300/.338 with five long balls and 36 RBI in what has been a disappointing season for the veteran infielder.
