Hill got a rare start in left field Monday, going 0-for-3 in a spring training win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The non-roster invitee is fighting for a backup role on the 25-man roster. Monday's start in left field (his first appearance since his college days) adds to Hill's flexibility and increases his odds at making the cut. The 35-year-old's primary value as a backup would be his ability to play three infield spots, but being able to spell expected left field starter, Jarrett Parker, against southpaws makes him a good fit for the team.

Hill started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's spring training win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

The soon-to-be 35-year-old is swinging a hot bat in early Cactus League action (.333/.375/.400 in 16 plate appearances). He was brought in on a minor league contract, but he could play his way onto the major league roster as a utility infielder. Kelby Tomlinson and Jimmy Rollins are the top candidates to win the final utility infield role out of camp, but Hill has definitely thrown his hat in the race.

Hill agreed to a minor league deal with the Giants, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The deal likely includes an invite to spring training. San Francisco has a few holes in their lineup and are throwing darts to see how they can fill them. Hill has shown fleeting use in mixed leagues over recent years as the power and speed he displayed in several great seasons have eroded. Turning 35 before the start of this season, his biggest utility most likely would come as a playing time compiler if he can land an opportunity. He could carry value as a rental in deep mixed leagues.

Hill exited Saturday's game after injuring his ankle but is available off the bench Sunday if needed, Scott Lauber of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the tweak of the ankle, there's nothing to suggest the issue is anything to worry about. Given that the veteran infielder splits time anyway, it shouldn't be of concern whether or not he's in the lineup. Unless something further surfaces, consider him good to go moving forward.

Hill is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hill has been seeing occasional time at third base, but will sit out Tuesday as Travis Shaw gets the nod to start at the hot corner. Hill's performance at the plate has left much to be desired lately, as he's gone just 5-for-28 (.179) over the last 14 games.
