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.
Jul 25 - 10:37 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.

Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with three RBI and a home run in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win against the Tigers.

The home run, a first inning solo shot, was just Hill's eighth of the season. His other two RBI came on a third inning sacrifice fly and a sixth inning RBI groundout. While Hill's batting a rather pedestrian .251/.284/.380 on the year, he's doing a decent job knocking in runs from the two-hole in Arizona's lineup, with 48 RBI notches on the belt as we near August.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Cardinals, Blue Jays and Giants have all shown varying levels of interest in the Diamondbacks available infielders.

Aaron Hill, Martin Prado and Didi Gregorius have each had their names floated around as being available via trade. All three of the clubs mentioned appear set at the shortstop position, but could use help at second base. The Blue Jays are rumored to be targeting Prado due to his positional flexibility.
Jul 5 - 10:26 AM

Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Giants on Saturday.

Hill is 4-for-6 with four RBI the last two nights after breaking out of an 0-for-12 slump. He still has just one homer in June and he hasn't walked since May 25, but the Diamondbacks mostly care about the RBI anyway.
Jun 22 - 1:44 AM

Aaron Hill went hitless in a third straight game Thursday in the loss to the Brewers.

Hill hasn't been all that great at any point during the season, but his modest numbers have taken quite the downturn of late, as he's hitting .219 with one homer and no walks in 64 at-bats this month. As much as he's struggling, he's probably the better option than Chris Owings to sit when the Diamondbacks want to play Didi Gregorius.
Jun 19 - 7:02 PM

Aaron Hill helped sink the Reds by going 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's 4-0 triumph.

This was Hill's first multi-hit game since May 14; that was also the day of his last round tripper. Amidst the struggles were a few missed games because of a sore shoulder and another start after fouling a ball off his ankle on Sunday. Hopefully this evening's outburst portends better times ahead for the hobbled second baseman. He's batting .259 with five homers.
May 30 - 12:48 AM

Aaron Hill was back in the Diamondbacks' lineup Tuesday.

Hill missed a start after fouling a ball off his ankle Sunday, but he's ready to roll now. The second baseman is hitting .255/.315/.408 with four homers and 23 RBI this season.

Aaron Hill (ankle) flew out in a pinch-hit appearance Monday against the Padres.

Aaron Hill (ankle) is available off the bench Monday.

Hill didn't start Monday after leaving the second game of Sunday's doubleheader when he fouled a ball off his left ankle. However, he's feeling much better and is expected back in the lineup Tuesday. "All things considered, we're going to give him another day, and he's available [to pinch-hit]," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "I'm sure he's going to hit in the cage. And he had a pretty big knot on there. And actually he could play the field OK, but the hitting really bothered him."
May 26 - 10:07 PM

Aaron Hill was removed from the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets for precautionary reasons after fouling a ball off his left ankle.
