The move will be made retroactive to April 20 so that the 29-year-old can return during the first week of May. Of course, that early return won’t happen unless he proves that he’s healthy.
Hill struggled with hamstring problems for a good portion of the 2010 season and was only able to play in 138 games. He still managed to hit 26 homers and has flashed great power potential throughout his career, but injuries have derailed many paths to stardom and this will be Hill’s third trip to the disabled list since 2008. The Jays are likely to rely on Mike McCoy at second base in his absence.
Hill will leave behind a .242/.265/.290 slash line. He has three doubles, no homers and nine RBI in 16 games.
