• Sources: Hill, D-backs agree to $35M contract

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Feb 8, 2013
    The D-backs were so impressed by Hill's performance they signed him to a two-year contract following the season. Happy to be living in Arizona and playing for the D-backs, second baseman Aaron Hill saw no reason to test the free-agent market. The deal seemed to rejuvenate Hill, who went on to compile an .878 OPS for the D-backs as they won the National League West. Hill was already set to earn $5.5 million this season and will make $11 million in 2014 and $12 million in both 2015 and 2016. The 30-year-old infielder - Toronto's first-round draft pick and the 13th selection overall out of LSU a decade ago - hit a career-high .302 with 26 home runs, 44 doubles and 85 RBIs last season, earning him a Silver Slugger award, the first for a Diamondbacks infielder.
