    Player Outlook

    After a few seasons of declining production in Arizona, Aaron Hill's contract was dumped on the Brewers in a trade that also sent shortstop prospect Isan Diaz to Milwaukee. Much to everyone's surprise, the increase in playing time seemed to act as a Fountain of Youth for the veteran infielder, as Hill bounced back to put together a productive season. In just 78 games with Milwaukee, the 34-year-old matched his hit total from the previous season (72) and hit two more home runs than in 2015, helping his slash line climb back to a solid .283/.359/.421 mark. This success punched him a ticket to Boston, as the Brewers used him to bring a few prospects into their rebuilding organization. His production tapered off with the Red Sox, as a limited role suppressed his batting average to .218. A free agent this offseason, Hill is unlikely to be handed a regular role, and he would be fortunate to even land a guaranteed platoon job on a big league roster.

    Player News
    • Giants' Aaron Hill: Joins Giants on minors pact
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hill agreed to a minor league deal with the Giants, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports. The deal likely includes an invite to spring training, with San Francisco throwing a dart on Hill's defensive versatility and sometimes useful bat. Over recent years, the power and speed Hill displayed in several great seasons have eroded. Turning 35 before the start of this season, his biggest utility most likely would come as a playing time compiler if he can land a sustained opportunity. Even with his decline, he could carry value as a rental in deep mixed leagues.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Hill is out of the lineup for Friday's matchup against Kansas City, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports. Hill has played in three of Boston's last four outings, but will give way to Travis Shaw at third base Friday. Shaw will hit eighth as the Red Sox face Ian Kennedy and the Royals.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Hill is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports. Hill has been seeing occasional time at third base, but will sit out Tuesday as Travis Shaw gets the nod to start at the hot corner. Hill's performance at the plate has left much to be desired lately, as he's gone just 5-for-28 (.179) over the last 14 games.

    • Red Sox's Aaron Hill: Batting leadoff Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hill (forearm) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports. Hill missed Tuesday and Wednesday's games due to forearm tightness, but encouraging news did surface Wednesday when it was reported that he would be available to pinch hit. Although he never did make it into Wednesday's game, Hill will bat atop the order Thursday afternoon while returning to his regular spot at third base.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Hill (forearm) is available for Wednesday's game against Baltimore, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports. Although he's not starting, Hill's availability as a pinch-hitter is nonetheless encouraging. While Hill is out, Brock Holt will likely continue to start at the hot corner for Boston.
