Fantasy Impact: Aaron Hill has been on a steep decline the last two seasons, especially in 2015 when he didn't even crack the top 50 2B on the player rater, and only played in 116 games despite no major injuries. Hill is moving to a significantly weaker lineup in Milwaukee, and Scooter Gennett (the Brewers current 2B) is already better than Hill with higher upside at age 25. Hill's playing time is just as uncertain as his potential production in 2016, and he shouldn't be drafted except in the deepest of NL-Only leagues.

Aaron Hill gets day off Sunday

Mon, Aug 31st 9:51am EDT
By Blaine Blontz

Aaron Hill received his weekly game off Sunday in the team's loss to the A's.

Fantasy Impact: Hill has been mostly ineffective this year, outside of a few nice stretches. He's been limited to a .630 OPS on the season, making him fantasy irrelevant outside of DFS.

Aaron Hill continued his hot hitting in the month of May, going three-for-five with two runs scored and two RBI. He is now 13-for-28 in the month with three home runs and has raised his season batting average .097 to .282.

Fantasy Impact: The hot streak for Hill will make it hard for the Diamondbacks to continue trotting out Nick Ahmed (.150) when Chris Owings can slide over to SS and Hill can reclaim his regular 2B job. The recent surge also elevates Hill's trade value, which the Diamondbacks may explore if they are committed to the younger players on the roster. Either way, Hill was a regularly productive fantasy player before 2014 and obviously the 33-year-old still has some gas in the tank.

Fantasy Impact: The Diamondbacks have gone with youth this spring, naming Owings the starting second baseman along with Nick Ahmed at shortstop. This will bring down Hill's fantasy value, but a trade to the right team could bring it right back up. His hefty contract and new management makes him a candidate for the trade block.
