Aaron Hill (2B,3B)

Milwaukee Brewers - 1% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

Hill went 2-for-4 on Wednesday with his first home run of the season, a solo shot off of Twins' reliever Ryan Pressly in the sixth inning of the Brewers 10-5 win. He also stole his second base of the year and scored two runs.

Fantasy Impact: The two-hit effort on Wednesday raises Hill's average to .186 on the season. Hill will continue to get close to everyday at-bats at third base for the Brewers at least for now. Hill is not worth fantasy consideration except in deep NL-only leagues.

Hill went 2-for-4 at the plate on Friday in the Brewers' 8-4 win over the Pirates. Hill also stole his first base of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Hill's two-hit game was his best day of the season so far for the Brewers to raise his average up to .161. He is not worth fantasy consideration expect for NL-only leagues.

Following another 0-for-3 performance on Monday, Hill's batting average has dropped down to .130 so far this season.

Fantasy Impact: Hill has started all seven games for the Brewers at third base this season. He should only be owned in deep NL-only leagues due the playing time he is receiving. He may lose playing time as the season progresses when the Brewers give a chance to younger prospects.

Hill started at third base for the Brewers in the first two games of the opening series against the Giants but went 0-for-3 on Tuesday after collecting one hit in four at-bats in the opener.

Fantasy Impact: Hill will be the primary third basemen for the Brewers to start the season and bat in the bottom half of the lineup. Fantasy owners should not consider Hill expect for NL-only leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Hill is slotted in as the Brewers starting third basemen to start the season and will likely bat in the bottom third of the lineup. At age 34 and playing for a rebuilding team, Hill is a candidate to be traded during the season or replaced with a prospect if he is not producing. According to Tom Haudricourt, one option could be to move Jonathan Villar or Yadiel Rivera over the third base when Orlando Arcia is ready to be called up.

Brewers manager Craig Consell said on Monday that he will look to Hill as the team's primary third baseman to start the season. Hill was acquired from Arizona prior to the season in the Jean Segura trade. Hill has primarily been a second baseman in his career but did play 38 games at third base for the Diamondback last season. (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

Fantasy Impact: The 33-year-old, Hill, will be one of the few veterans on a team that is in the rebuilding process. Hill should only be considered in NL-only and deep mixed leagues. Fantasy owners can expect Hill to get around 400 at-bats with about a .240 batting average and 8-12 home runs this season.

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.
