Tigers' Derek Hill: Expected back in mid-June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (elbow) is making progress and the Tigers expect him back in game action in mid-June, Baseball America's Chris Iott reports.

Hill underwent elbow reconstruction surgery in August, and also missed most of 2015 with knee and quad injuries. The 21-year-old outfielder slashed .266/.312/.349 over 415 plate appearances with Low-A Michigan on the season, also stealing 35 bases in 41 attempts. If he gets back on the field in mid-June, he'll have about two and a half months to salvage his 2017 season, provided he can remain healthy.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Out for season, half of 2017 following elbow surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hill underwent elbow reconstruction surgery last week and will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2016 season and at least half of the 2017 season, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Hill, a first-round pick by the Tigers in 2014, hurt his throwing elbow while making a throw from center field during a game with Low-A West Michigan last week. The 20-year-old had submitted a .266/.312/.349 batting line over 415 plate appearances on the campaign, while recording 35 steals in 41 attempts. It's a devastating setback to his development, but since his game is built more on speed than power, the injury likely won't affect him as much as it would other kinds of players.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Hitting streak at nine games in Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill extended his hitting streak to nine games on Friday. He was hitting .395 (17-for-43) with 11 runs and five stolen bases over the last 10 games at Low-A Michigan.

Overall, Hill is batting .267 with 42 runs scored and 19 stolen bases in 51 games at Low-A. He could finally be putting the pieces together at the plate, but we'll wait to see how he adapts to a full season before we declare his stock on the rise.
