Fantasy Impact: Hill played in 125 games in 2016 hitting .262 with 10 home runs and 38 RBI between the Brewers and Red sox. Hill was a phenomenal power source during his prime but at this point in his career he can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with two RBI in his first game with the Red Sox on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Hill started at third base for the Sox on Friday. It will remain to be seen how much playing time he will get with the team but at the moment it sounds like he will be in a platoon with Travis Shaw. He will not see enough at-bats in that scenario to be worth a pick up in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Aaron Hill traded to Red Sox

Thu, Jul 7th 6:35pm EDT

Aaron Hill has been traded from the Milwaukee Brewers to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for prospects Aaron Wilkerson and Wendell Rijo. Hill is 7-for-22 over the last seven days and has 19 extra-base hits this season. He has a .780 OPS in 2016. (Source: Milwaukee Brewers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With the injury doubt for Travis Shaw and Hill's versatility across the infield, this is a great trade for Boston. Hill was in the AL East from 2005-2011 with the Toronto Blue Jays, hitting 36 home runs in 2009 and 26 in 2010, and has a .283 batting average this season.

Hill took the Nationals' Blake Treinen deep with one out in the seventh inning for a two-run shot to help give the Brewers a 5-2 win. Hill finished the game going 3-for-4 with a double, homer, three RBI and a run.

Fantasy Impact: Since a slow start to the season in April, Hill has been one of the Brewers best hitters batting .324 with seven homers, 22 RBI and 30 runs since May 1. Hill could be moved by the Brewers at the trade deadline which could hurt his fantasy value if he doesn't get everyday at-bats with a different team. If Hill remains with the Brewers his play time should remain secure until the Brewers promote their top prospect, Orlando Arcia.

Hill batted second on Thursday in the Brewers 8-6 win over the Dodgers and went 2-for-4 with two runs and hit is seventh home run of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Hill's homer Thursday was his first since hitting two long balls against the Reds on May 27. After a red-hot month of May where Hill batted .357 with five homers, he has cooled off in June batting just .233. Hill batted in the second spot in the order for just the second time this season on Thursday. His fantasy and DFS appeal could increase if he continues to bat second against lefties.

Category: , Game Recaps

Hill collected two singles and took two walks in his four plate appearances Saturday. Hill also scored once and drove in a run in the Brewers 7-6 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Hill loves playing the Reds this season, going 12-for-23 with five homers, 11 RBI, six runs and three walks in six games. Hill will be a strong DFS play again Sunday when the Brewers face Reds' lefty Brandon Finnegan.

Get Aaron Hill in your lineup

Sat, May 28th 1:04pm EDT
By Chris Zolli

Aaron Hill is 3-for-13 against Alfredo Simon in his career and has five of his six home runs this season against the Reds. Get Hill in all of your lineups today.

Fantasy Impact: Aaron Hill and Jonathan Lucroy should be seen as key pieces of all fantasy lineups today, as the Brewers crush Simon and the Reds.

Hill reached base all four of his plate appearances on Saturday including walks in this first three at-bats before singling in the eighth inning. Hill finished the day 1-for-1 with two runs and a stolen base in the Brewers 5-4 loss to the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Hill has cooled off over the last week but has still recorded one hit in six of his last seven games. Hill is batting .252 for the season with four home runs, 17 RBI and three steals. Hill's playing time could be in question later this season when the Brewers call up prospect Orlando Arcia but for now, he is playing almost every day and should be rostered in NL-only leagues and deep mixed leagues.

Hill went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run and two RBI in the Brewers 10-2 win over the Marlins on Tuesday to raise his average up to .265 this season.

Fantasy Impact: Hill has recorded at least one hit in nine straight games that he has started. He is batting .455 this month with three home runs and 10 RBI in 10 games. Hill's hot streak has coincided with a shift to second base from third base when Scooter Gennett landed on the disabled list. With Gennett expected back soon, Hill will likely return to third base for the Brewers. Fantasy owners should monitor his production when he returns to third base to see if it affects his hitting.

Hill hit three home runs on Saturday in the Brewers' 13-7 extra-innings win over the Reds. Hill hit his first home run in the sixth inning, a two-run shot, off Reds' starter Brandon Finnigan. He hit a solo homer in the eighth inning off reliever JC Ramirez and then in the tenth inning, Hill delivered a grand slam off Caleb Cotham to give the Brewers the lead and eventual win. In total Hill went 3-for-5 with three home runs and seven RBI on the night.

Fantasy Impact: Hill has been hitting better recently but his sudden power explosion on Saturday was unexpected. Hill totaled just six home runs last season and with the three on Saturday now has four home runs this season. Over his last seven games, Hill is now hitting .440 with three home runs, seven RBI and six runs. Fantasy owners should still temper expectations for Hill as he should only be rostered in NL-only leagues.

Hill played second base went 2-for-4 with one RBI on Thursday in the Brewers' 9-5 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: With Scooter Gennett on the disabled list, Hill has been playing some second base, his natural position, and it has translated into improved hitting. Over his last six games, four playing second base, Hill has hit .400 with a double, RBI and four runs. It might just be a coincidence but anything to get Hill to start to hit will be helpful. Hill is still only worth fantasy consideration in NL-only leagues.

Hill played second base for the second straight game for the Brewers on Sunday with Scooter Gennett on the disabled list. He went 2-for-4 on Sunday with a run and a walk in the Brewers' 14-5 victory.

Fantasy Impact: With Gennett out, Hill has moved back to his natural position at second base in the last two games, going 3-for-8 at the plate. With Hill moving the second base, Colin Walsh has started at third base for the Brewers. The move to second base could help Hill start hitting after a terrible start to the season. Hill is only worth fantasy consideration in NL-only leagues.

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.

Category: , Game Recaps

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.

Category: , Game Recaps

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.

Category: , Game Recaps

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.

Category: , Game Recaps

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.

Aaron Hill is the odd man out with Chris Owings named the starting second baseman for the Diamondbacks. He'll occupy a bench role with pinch-hit opportunities. (Source: Steve Gilbert)

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.
