Diamondbacks' Aaron Hill (illness) back in lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Diamondbacks infielder Aaron Hill is playing second base and batting sixth in Sunday's series finale against the Phillies.
Hill has been slowed by an illness in recent days, but he was able to serve as a pinch-hitter Saturday before making his return to the lineup Sunday. He has hit .280/.330/.439 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 82 at-bats.
The Diamondbacks are road favorites (-130) in Philadelphia, per VegasInsider.com.
Diamondbacks' Aaron Hill available off the bench despite illness
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Diamondbacks third baseman Aaron Hill is available to come off the bench in Arizona's game on Saturday, manager Chip Hale said per AZCentral.com.
Hill, who also missed Friday's game with an illness, is feeling better but Hale is hoping to give him one more day off. Yasmany Tomas will draw the start at third in his place.
Illness has Diamondbacks 3B Aaron Hill out in Philadelphia
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) An illness that forced Diamondbacks third baseman Aaron Hill out of the game Wednesday has him sidelined Friday night against the host Phillies as well, per azcentral.com.
It is hoped that his absence will not negatively affect his hitting upon his return. Hill has been on a roll with 16 hits, including four home runs, in his last 36 at-bats.
Diamondbacks' Aaron Hill is on a roll at the plate
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/13/15) Aaron Hill continued his hot-hitting ways on Tuesday, as the Diamondbacks put up 14 runs on the Nationals in a lop-sided victory. Hill went 3 for 5 with two RBI and two runs scored. He collected his fourth double of the year.
Hill, who has started to see regular playing time at second and third base, is hitting a robust .364 (13 for 28) with three home runs and eight RBI over his last 10 games. He has seen his season average rise about 100 points since the start of May.
He had lost his starting job after a disappointing spring training, but Hill has really found his stride lately.
"He's worked hard," D-backs manager Chip Hale said, per MLB.com. "Ever since Spring Training, when I gave him an idea of where his playing time would come, he's just gotten better and better. It's kind of a cool thing to see when a veteran guy like that sort of starts to play almost as a rookie. He's got a lot of energy. It's kind of contagious to the other kids."
Diamondbacks 3B Aaron Hill hits third home run in May
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/10/15) Third baseman Aaron Hill connected for a solo home run Sunday to help put the Diamondbacks past the Padres.|
Hill had not hit his first home run this season until May 2, and now he has three.
|2014 summary: Aaron Hill's career has been marked by inconsistency, and after two seasons with good production, the 10-year veteran took another nosedive in 2014. Part of Hill's problems stemmed from a career-high strikeout rate (18.4 percent of at-bats), and he lacked power when he did make contact, hitting just 10 home runs and 26 doubles. Hill's lackluster performance earned him a 20th-place finish among second basemen in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: Hill was left out of the Diamondbacks starting lineup for 18 of his final 42 games before having his season ended in late September with a dislocated pinkie. He should see regular playing time at either second or third base, but he may not be a lock to start 150 games.
2015 outlook: If Hill bounces back from a tough year, he would certainly be worth starting in standard mixed leagues because 20-homer hitters aren't easy to find at second base. However, Hill's floor is as considerable as his ceiling, and there is too much risk involved in reaching for him in the middle rounds. If you wait on drafting a second baseman, taking a late-round flier on Hill is a great move.
