Aaron Hill 2B ARI 5 Days

Hill is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

Hill missed two games already this week due to unspecified soreness, and will receive another day of rest Sunday afternoon. The 32-year-old is hitting just .175 in August, with Friday's home run representing his only extra-base hit on the month. Cliff Pennington will take over at the keystone.

Hill went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 3-2 win over the Marlins.

After batting just .182 (6-for-33) with no extra-base hits over his previous nine games, Hill came up with the biggest hit of Friday's contest. The second baseman's first-inning homer turned out to be the difference, as all five runs of the contest came in the opening frame.

Manager Kirk Gibson said Hill was held out of Thursday's lineup because he was "a little banged up," Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Gibson declined to elaborate on the specific nature of the injury, but he did acknowledge that a stint on the DL isn't a possibility. With that in mind, there would seem to be a good chance that Hill gets back into the lineup at some point over the weekend.

Hill is out of the lineup Thursday vs. the Marlins.

Hill didn't get a true day of rest Wednesday in starting one of the two games of the doubleheader with the Indians, so he'll spend Thursday's game on the bench. Cliff Pennington will cover second base in his stead.

Aaron Hill (hand) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

Hill had to exit Saturday's contest following a hit by pitch on his right hand. X-rays came back negative, but he's obviously still a bit sore. Consider him day-to-day. Didi Gregorius is at second base Sunday in Hill's place.
