  10. Giving Aaron Hill $35 million another misstep for Diamondbacks

    Feb 8, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Aaron Hill

    Arizona GM Kevin Towers has mastered the art of buying high and selling low this winter. In giving Aaron Hill a three-year, $35 million extension on Friday, Towers made another high-risk, low-upside move.  Second basemen have a history of cratering earlier than most, and Hill is going to be 32-34 during the years his extension…

    Here’s something you don’t see every day. Or week. Or month. Or year. Or decade. Well, you get the point. After hitting for the cycle back on June 18, Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill did it again tonight against the Brewers in Milwaukee. That’s right, two cycles in the space of 12 days. And the…

The second…

    Oct 31, 2011, 9:28 PM EDT

  20. Thinking about the Kelly Johnson-for-Aaron Hill swap

    Aug 23, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Aaron Hill

    Ahhh, the elusive challenge trade. With just five weeks left in the season, the Diamondbacks and Blue Jays opted to swap second basemen Tuesday.  Toronto received Kelly Johnson and sent along Aaron Hill, also including shortstop John McDonald in the bargain. That all three players in the trade are free agents-to-be makes it an especially…

    Aug 23, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kelly Johnson

    It’s being reported — sorry, not sure who got it first; the earthquake has rendered Twitter almost unreadable — that the Diamondbacks have traded Kelly Johnson to Toronto for Aaron Hill and John McDonald. Johnson is a year removed from a 26-homer, .284/.370/.496 season, though he’s struggling mightily this year. There’s still power — 18 homers…

    May 5, 2011, 2:15 PM EDT
