Tigers' Derek Hill: Earns promotion to High-A club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill was promoted to High-A Lakeland on Tuesday, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports.

For a third straight season, Hill opened the year with Low-A West Michigan, but it seems the 22-year-old has finally convinced the Tigers' brass that he's mastered the Midwest League. The outfielder has slashed .285/.367/.444 across 168 plate appearances with West Michigan while picking up 12 steals and flashing highlight-reel defense. It's the latter skill that should help him rise up the organizational ladder, but Hill's paucity of power and meager hit tool won't make him an especially appealing fantasy option if he eventually hits the big leagues.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Back in action at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (elbow) is 5-for-19 (.263) with four extra-base hits and two stolen bases in six games since returning from the disabled list with Low-A West Michigan.

The outfield prospect had been out all season after undergoing elbow surgery last August, but he isn't missing a beat now that he's back in action. There's a lot of swing and miss in his game, but the 21-year-old Hill could climb up the organizational ladder quickly given how much he walks and how successful he is when he attempts steals.
