Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Hill (forearm) is expected to return from the disabled list sometime before June, Alec Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Hill is nearing a return to the big club as he has already played in seven minor-league rehab games. It's unclear when exactly Hill will rejoin the Giants, though Bochy said it would be sometime during the team's next homestand, which runs May 26 to May 31.
Hill (forearm) will open a rehab assignment with High-A San Jose on Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Hill isn't likely to need more than two or three games in the minors, so he's still on pace to return by the weekend or soon after. The Giants embark on a seven-game road trip on Friday, so in an ideal world, Hill will be able to make his return by then.
Hill (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment soon, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. There have yet to be any details regarding which affiliate the Giants will send Hill to, but more information will be known as the assignment approaches. Once Hill is back in full health, he'll add depth to San Francisco's infield.
Hill was placed on the 10-day DL with a right forearm strain, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Christian Arroyo, the Giants' top prospect, was called up to fill Hill's spot on the roster for the time being. It's currently unclear how long Hill will be sidelined with the injury, though the Giants should update his status once more is known. Hill is slashing just .120/.241/.240 through 12 games, so this loss isn't too impactful for fantasy purposes.
Hill will start in left field and lead off for the Giants in Wednesday's game against the Royals, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. Manager Bruce Bochy will give struggling veteran Denard Span the night off with left-hander Jason Vargas twirling for the Royals, opening up the leadoff spot for Hill, who projects to see a good portion of his at-bats against southpaws this season. A career .267/.333/.431 hitter versus lefties, Hill could make for a decent low-cost DFS option for the Wednesday slate.
