The Giants released Hill on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After being designated for assignment Saturday, Hill passed through waivers and wasn't the subject of a successful trade offer, so he'll be free to latch on to another organization. Whether he does that in a fantasy-relevant role remains to be seen, following he's batting only .132/.250/.235 in 80 plate appearances with the Giants.

Hill was designated for assignment by the Giants on Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hill was slashing just .132/.250/.235 in 34 games (80 plate appearances) this season, ultimately prompting the Giants to drop him from their 40-man roster. Ryder Jones had his contract purchased from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move, and will likely serve as the Giants' third baseman with Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) on the DL. Hill will likely draw some interest on waivers given his previous big-league experience.

Hill will start at third base and bat seventh Sunday against the Rockies, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

It will be the third straight start for Hill, who has been benefiting from increased at-bats while Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) has been hurting. The Giants haven't indicated that Nunez's injury is anything more than a day-to-day concern, so unless he hits the disabled list, Hill isn't a safe bet to see regular at-bats throughout the coming week.

Hill will move back to the bench with Joe Panik (thumb) making his return to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran's stretch of playing time has come to an end with Panik's return, and he will return to the bench to serve as a backup infielder. Hill went 2-for-13 while filling in at second base, so he didn't do much to make a case for more playing time.

Hill will start at second base and bat third Sunday against the Twins, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Joe Panik (thumb) hasn't been available all weekend and isn't expected back until Tuesday's series opener with the Royals at the earliest, so Hill will check into the lineup for a third straight contest. The steady at-bats could make Hill worth a cursory look in NL-only formats, but with veteran hitting just .178 with one home run in 52 plate appearances this season, fantasy owners in deeper mixed leagues can probably find a better middle-infield option.

Hill is being used primarily as a pinch-hitter since his activation from the disabled list May 27.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder has started just two of the Giants' last 10 contests. Hill's positional versatility will earn him the occasional start against a southpaw, but his .162/.279/.270 slash line in 43 plate appearances limits his value even as a potential short-schedule daily option.

Hill (forearm) was activated from the DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Hill is ready to return to action following a month-long absence due to a forearm strain, having an eight-game minor-league rehab assignment. He will not immediately slot into the lineup Friday, but Hill should see occasional time between left field, second base and third base moving forward.

Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Hill (forearm) is expected to return from the disabled list sometime before June, Alec Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hill is nearing a return to the big club as he has already played in seven minor-league rehab games. It's unclear when exactly Hill will rejoin the Giants, though Bochy said it would be sometime during the team's next homestand, which runs May 26 to May 31.

Hill (forearm) will start a rehab assignment with High-A San Jose on Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hill isn't likely to need more than two or three games in the minors, so he's still on pace to return by the weekend or soon after. The Giants embark on a seven-game road trip on Friday, so in an ideal world, Hill will be able to make his return by then.

Hill (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment soon, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

There have yet to be any details regarding which affiliate the Giants will send Hill to, but more information will be known as the assignment approaches. Once Hill is back in full health he'll add depth to San Francisco's infield.
