Hill will start at third base Wednesday for the second straight day.

Hill and Yasmany Tomas have split the third base duties over the last eight games, and Wednesday's contest will be the third out of four in which Hill has started. Hill is sizzling this month (going 13-for-28 (.464) with three home runs and eight RBI through nine games.

Hill went 3-for-5 from the plate Tuesday against the Nationals, driving in two runs and scoring two of his own.

Hill's average jumped by .022 points Tuesday. He came into the night hitting just .260. Hill doesn't do one thing particularly well, but he's having a good all-around season, posting a slash line of .282/.449/.782.

Hill continued his recent success on Sunday, going 1-for-3 with a solo home run versus the Padres.

After a putrid start to the season Hill has really turned it around of late and has gone 10-for-21 with three home runs, six RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base over his past seven games. Hill is currently a part-time player but could earn even more playing time at second base if middle infielders Nick Ahmed and Chris Owings continue to underachieve.

Hill went 0-for-1, but had three walks and a run scored, Friday in a win over San Diego.

Hill continues to turn around his season at the plate, posting a .407/.467/.667 line over his last 27 at-bats. He will still be a part-time player until either Nick Ahmed or Chris Owings is demoted, but he is showing that he can have some value in deeper leagues.

Hill went 2-for-4 with a double and his first stolen base of the season in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Colorado.

Hill played third base in this one after starting at second in the first game. In total, Hill went 6-for-9 in the doubleheader Wednesday, starting both games, and raised his batting line to .262/.294/.400. While he hasn't claimed a starting gig yet, he is going to keep pushing Chris Owings and Yasmany Tomas for playing time if he hits. He could be someone to target on the cheap in deep and NL-only leagues.

Hill was 4-for-5 with his second home run of the season, a run scored, and four RBI in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Rockies.

Hill is finally showing some signs of life at the dish with hits in five straight games. Wednesday's performance pushed his average up to .246, the first time all year he has been above the Mendoza line. Hill continues to get periodic playing time at second and third base, but has not claimed a starting job yet. That may change if he gets hot.

Hill went 1-for-4 with his first home run of the season Saturday against the Dodgers.

Hill was designated for a bench role coming out of spring training, but has still received 57 plate appearances to date. Unfortunately, he hasn't done much with them, posting a .185/.228/.278 line with just three extra-base hits. Following on a tough year last season, despite Saturday's home run, it is starting to look like Hill doesn't have much left in the tank.

Hill is out of the lineup again Monday against the Rockies.

Hill continues to split starts with Yasmany Tomas at third base in the absence of Jake Lamb, but Monday marks the first back-to-back starts for Tomas. It's unclear if this could be a shift moving forward, but the lineup Tuesday could provide a better picture.

Hill will be out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.

Though Jake Lamb's move to the disabled list earlier this week seemed to open the door for more at-bats at third base for Hill, the Diamondbacks remain interested in experimenting with Yasmany Tomas at the position. Expect the two players to share duties until one stumbles into a hot streak at the plate.

Hill is out of the lineup Friday.

Yasmany Tomas gets the start at third, but he won't play there everyday and with Jake Lamb out two-to-three weeks, Hill should still see at least a couple starts at the hot corner each week.
