Aaron Hill (2B/3B, ARI) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 13% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: Aaron Hill probably wan’t one of the names you expected (or wanted) to see on here, but hear me out before scrolling down. He’s owned in less than 10 percent of most leagues, he’s got eligibility at second and third base, he’s hitting behind Paul Goldschmidt and David Peralta (see also: RBI opportunities) and he’s in the starting lineup quite a bit these days. With Yasmany Tomas struggling defensively at third, Hill is manning the hot corner on days he isn’t playing second.

In the month of May he’s been scorching the ball, going 13-for-28 with three home runs and eight RBI in just nine games. His .308 BABIP is just a few points higher than his career average and he’s striking out a 15 percent clip – 2 percentage points less than last year. He makes great contact on balls in the zone and while his OBP (.333) leaves a lot to be desired, it’s mainly an effect of his inability to draw walks. He may not continue to produce at this level, but he’s a solid target if you need infield help.
