Aaron Hill finally getting 'freed up' at the plate


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill blames his poor first-half production on putting too much pressure on himself, according to The Arizona Republic.

"I love what I do. I'm very passionate about what I do," Hill said. "When I don't do things the way I should be doing things, I do get a little upset. That's just because I know I'm better and I expect a lot out of myself. That has hurt me this year a little bit, looking too much into it."

Hill, though, seems to be finally turning the corner offensively. He's hit safely in seven straight games, which includes two home runs and three doubles in that span.

"He looks more relaxed at the plate," hitting coach Turner Ward said. "He looks more freed up. He's taking more of those pitches and taking them to right, and that's what's going to get him back to the other side."

He added another RBI on a sacrifice fly in the third inning and drove in a third run on a groundout in the sixth. Hill has put together a seven-game hitting streak to help boost his line to .251/.284/.380 with eight home runs and 48 RBI in 363 at-bats.

Aaron Hill losing Fantasy value, but not a lost cause


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill has been one of the more disappointing Fantasy options in my opinion. I liked Hill as a sleeper at second base this preseason after he was coming off an injury plagued 2013, but I made the move to drop Hill to 15th in the second-base rankings since the position is getting deep.

I'm still hopeful Hill will figure it out for selfish reasons because I own him in multiple Fantasy leagues. It seems his biggest problem this season is that he's chasing pitches. He's swinging at 31.5 percent of pitches outside the strike zone, which is well above his career rate of 26.1 percent, per FanGraphs.com. It's no surprise his strikeout rate is at a career-high 18.4 percent.

The last time Hill swung at more than 30 percent of pitches outside the strike zone was in 2010 (31.3) and 2012 (30.1). Though, his numbers in 2010 were far worse than 2012, which was the season Hill finished as the second-highest scoring Fantasy second baseman in points leagues. He's proven he can still succeed even though he chases pitches out of the strike zone.

Even though Hill has underachieved, there's not a lot of quality second baseman I would drop him for in Fantasy. With players owned in less than 75 percent of leagues, I think I would only drop Hill for Kolten Wong (53 percent). Hill is still a good enough talent that I wouldn't mind waiting to see if he can turn it around if there really aren't any promising options on waivers.
