Tigers' Derek Hill: Idle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Jason Beck of reports.

Hill went 6-for-17 with a triple, three runs and two RBI while starting each of the past four games, but he'll get a breather in the series finale. Akil Baddoo slides over from the corner outfield to replace Hill in center.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Records three hits Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill went 3-for-6 with two runs and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

The Tigers scored 17 runs on 16 hits, and Hill was right in the middle of it all. All three of his hits were singles, but Hill won't complain after getting just three hits total in his previous 13 at-bats. The 25-year-old outfielder is getting the chance to play every day and boosted his average up to .289 with the strong performance.

Tigers' Derek Hill: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

An 0-for-4 showing Monday lowered Hill's average to .240 in nine games since the All-Star break. He has neither recorded an extra-base hit nor driven in a run during that span, although he has drawn four walks and scored five times. Akil Baddoo will start in center field and bat leadoff Tuesday.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

Hill has started in center field in four of the Tigers' previous five games, going 3-for-11 with three runs and two stolen bases. With Eric Haase expected to spend more time behind the plate for the foreseeable future following Jake Rogers' (arm) placement on the injured list, Hill could fill a near-everyday role in the outfield alongside Akil Baddoo and Robbie Grossman.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers.

Hill started in center field in each of Detroit's first three games of the second half, going 2-for-7 with three runs and two stolen bases. Though Hill isn't entrenched as an everyday player for Detroit, his excellent defense and speed should at least allow him to pick up a handful of starts per week.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Swipes bag in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 7-0 win over Minnesota.

Hill is up to six stolen bases in seven attempts after his theft Sunday. The 25-year-old outfielder has added three RBI and six runs scored through 26 plate appearances, but all six of his hits so far have been singles. He'll likely see the short side of a platoon with Akil Baddoo in center field while Daz Cameron (toe) is out.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill is starting in center field and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Twins.

Hill started both ends of Saturday's doubleheader and will remain in the lineup for Sunday's series finale. With Eric Haase (head) leaving Saturday's nightcap and sitting out Sunday, there could be some more outfield playing time available in the short term. Hill will be joined Sunday by Akil Baddoo and Robbie Grossman from left to right.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Scores twice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill went 0-for-2 and was hit by a pitch, stole a base and scored twice in Saturday's extra-innings win over the Twins.

Hill was hit by a pitch his first time up and came around to score on a bases-clearing triple by Akil Baddoo. He later represented the tying run in extra innings and stole his fifth base of the year before he was singled home by Jonathan Schoop. Hill should remain up with the big-league club for the time being while the Tigers are dealing with some injuries to their outfielders, but he is currently not a long-term option.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Starting first game Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill is starting in center field and batting ninth in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Hill was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday, but he didn't get the chance to play when the twin bill was rained out. The 25-year-old will start at least once Saturday with Akil Baddoo getting the first game off. Hill should get some playing time while Daz Cameron (toe) is on the injured list, though Cameron's eventual return may push Hill back to the minors.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

Hill appeared in eight big-league games during the first half of the season and will rejoin the Tigers coming out of the All-Star break. The 25-year-old has a .320/.373/.508 slash line in 137 plate appearances at Triple-A this year and should see more opportunities in the outfield for Detroit this time around with Nomar Mazara designated for assignment.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit optioned Hill to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.

Hill will return to Toledo after he was up with the Tigers on Wednesday to serve as their 27th man for a doubleheader with Cleveland. The 25-year-old outfielder started in the second game of the twin bill, going 1-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base, two RBI and a run.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Called up as 27th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill was recalled by the Tigers as the 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland.

Hill was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday after he missed just under three weeks with a shoulder issue, and he'll be available for Wednesday's twin bill. He went 3-for-12 with two runs, an RBI and three stolen bases in seven games prior to his injury, and he could return to the minors following the doubleheader.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Activated and optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) was activated off the injured list Tuesday and optioned to Triple-A Toledo.

Hill wound up missing just shy of three weeks after hurting his shoulder while crashing into the outfield wall. He's no longer needed in the majors now that he's healthy, however, so he'll remain in the minors to await his next chance.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Rehab shifts to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) moved up to Triple-A Toledo on Friday to continue his rehab assignment, Jason Beck of reports.

Hill has already missed over two weeks with a sprained right shoulder. He went 6-for-18 at the plate over four rehab games for Low-A Lakeland and should be ready to be activated soon, though the Tigers have yet to specify exactly when that will happen.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Starts up rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) began a rehab assignment at Low-A Lakeland over the weekend, appearing in games Saturday and Sunday while going 3-for-10 with a double.

Hill served as a designated hitter for both contests, so the Tigers will presumably want to see him play close to a full game in center field at the minor-league level before he's reinstated from the injured list. Prior to being shut down with the sprained right shoulder, Hill had emerged as the Tigers' primary option in center field, but his path to regular at-bats could be closed by the time he's ready to return. Akil Baddoo and Daz Cameron have been picking up most of the work in center of late, while Robbie Grossman and Nomar Mazara typically occupy the corner spots.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Goes on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers placed Hill on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right shoulder sprain.

The 25-year-old picked up the injury when he collided with the outfield wall while making a spectacular catch in Wednesday's win over the Mariners. The injury comes at a particularly inconvenient time for Hill, who had started five straight games while going 3-for-11 with three stolen bases. Akil Baddoo and the newly recalled Daz Cameron will likely form a platoon in center field while Hill is on the shelf.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Exits after collision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill was removed from Wednesday's game against the Mariners with a right shoulder sprain he sustained from crashing into the outfield wall, Jason Beck of reports.

Hill made a great running catch in center, but he was shaken up after his right shoulder made contact with the wall. Akil Baddoo entered the game to replace Hill. It's unclear how much time Hill will miss, or if he'll require a trip to the injured list.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Collects two hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Recalled by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill was recalled by the Tigers on Thursday.

Hill saw action in two games for the Tigers in late April but struck out in his lone plate appearance. The 25-year-old has looked good in 21 Triple-A games this season, hitting .355/.417/.526 with two homers and four steals. He'll likely fill a bench role during his time with the team. Victor Reyes (intercostal) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Derek Hill: Back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill was returned to the alternate site after Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Hill was recalled as the 27th man and entered as a pinch runner in the latter contest. This was his first stint with the big-league club this season, and he figures to serve primarily as organizational depth in the outfield throughout the campaign.
