Diamondbacks activate Aaron Hill from the disabled list

1 Comment

Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill is back from the disabled list after missing more than two months with a fractured hand that was initially expected to keep him out for 4-6 weeks.

Hill actually suffered the injury a week before being placed on the DL, as the Diamondbacks hadn’t determined that it was a fracture and allowed him to play through it. Now healthy, Hill went 9-for-24 (.375) in six games rehabbing at Triple-A.

In his absence the Diamondbacks used four different starters at second base, with Cliff Pennington and Willie Bloomquist basically splitting time there recently. Overall this season Arizona second basemen have hit .273 with a .704 OPS, which while decent is quite a dropoff from Hill hitting .304 with an .885 OPS since joining the Diamondbacks in mid-2011.
