by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a left foot stress reaction, the team announced.

Lamb has started a team-high eight games at third base. Aaron Hill and Yasmany Tomas could see time at third base in Lamb's absence. Hill has started five times at third base and Tomas drew his first start at the hot corner Tuesday.

Lamb heads to the disabled list with a .414 average, one triple, one home run, three doubles and nine RBI in 10 games.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb and catcher Tuffy Gosewisch are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Lamb batted second Saturday for the first time this season but is out of the lineup Sunday for just the second time in his last eight games. Gosewisch started eight of the last nine games behind the plate. With both players on the bench, the Diamondbacks will bat third baseman Aaron Hill fifth and catcher Jordan Pacheco sixth.

Diamondbacks 3B Hill provides big hit in Thursday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Aaron Hill only managed one hit Thursday night, but it sure came at an ideal time.

Hill slugged a two-run double to deep left-center off Giants reliever Sergio Romo to break a 5-5 tie and key an Arizona victory.

Perhaps the hit will help Hill emerge from an early-season slump. It broke a 1-for-22 string, provided his first RBI of the year and lifted his batting average to .188.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Hill is also a right-handed hitter, as opposed to Lamb, who bats left-handed. The matchup is more favorable for Hill against a top left-handed pitcher.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The team decided to option Cuban prospect Yasmany Tomas to Triple-A Saturday, leaving a hole at third with either Hill or prospect Jake Lamb to fill. Hill has played 42 of his 1,284 games at third base, hitting .327 with 19 doubles and 23 RBI in 167 plate appearances.


D-Backs' Chip Hale: Nick Ahmed, Chris Owings to start in infield


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Hale said this decision was based on the performance of the three infielders during the spring. 

This spring, and prior to Friday night's game against the Cubs, Ahmed has hit .328 with six doubles and five RBI. Owings has hit .244 with seven RBI. Hill has hit just .189 with three RBI.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks open to trading Cahill, Ross, Hill


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) The Diamondbacks have let it be known that the team is open to trading pitcher Trevor Cahill, outfielder Cody Ross and second baseman Aaron Hill, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart indicated Monday that he has not spoken to teams about any of the three players.

Hill is expected to open the season as the team's starting second baseman, while Ross is likely to compete for at-bats in left field. Cahill is not a lock to open the season in the team's rotation even if he remains on the Diamondbacks.


D-Backs' Aaron Hill making strong impression early on in camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill has left a strong impression on chief baseball officer Tony La Russa through the early days of spring training, per MLB.com.

"He definitely is in the competition for playing time," La Russa said. "That's just front office talking, remember that, because [manager] Chip [Hale] makes out the lineup. I'm just echoing what Chip has seen. I'm sure he would say the same thing to you."


Diamondbacks' Aaron Hill feeling great heading into camp


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill is feeling great heading into camp, according to azcentral.com.

"My body feels great," Hill said. "My swing feels great. Everything is where I'd like it to be." That's an encouraging thought after Hill went through some struggles last season. The 32-year-old hit just .244/.287/.367 over 501 at-bats. 

Some of those issues were due to injuries, though Hill refused to blame his struggles on medical issues. "Some years you have bumps and bruises that you deal with all year, and whether or not that affects the performance ... I don't know. I'm never going to blame anything on that," he said.

Hill is owed $12 million in both 2015 and 2016. He could turn into a useful trade piece if he's able to bounce back this season.
