Hill went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Mariners.

Appearing in his sixth game of the season, Hill delivered his first multi-hit performance. The team recently designated JaCoby Jones for assignment, so there's an opportunity for Hill to earn more regular playing time in center field. His primary competition at the moment seems to be Akil Baddoo, and neither player has a particularly lengthy MLB track record, so they could each get some time for the rebuilding Tigers. Hill provides his most value on the defensive end, but he won't hesitate to run when he reaches base. He's already gone 3-for-4 on stolen-base attempts since his June 3 call-up from Triple-A Toledo.
