I like the kid and I need a good bat at my Util position (have been rotating Crisp, Wilkerson, and Cameron) and he seems to have some definite tools. What do you guys think will happen with him the rest of the year? Will he shift to other positions beside 3B? Will they trade O-Dog and move him to 2nd like Gammons said? Do you think he will continue to hit well?

Yeah, but the kid is hot, plus he will serve as my backup to David Wright. Cameron was starting to cool off some so I was thinking of giving Hill a few games at UTIL to see what happens. If he can keep up a .300 avg and steal some bases, I might just leave him there. Would really love for him to pick up 2B eligibility though.
He is going to hit for a good average but I would not expect anything more than that. Little bit of pop, not much speed. I think next year he will show more HR power. Another factor that could cut into his production is the return of Koskie.
He'll be good. He's been outrageous so far. Crazy to see him get his hits where he does. There had been some talk about him not having an HR until Monday, because he generally hits for more power and his power numbers should grow as he gets older.
This year, he should be a contributor from a fantasy perspective. He could hit 10-15 HR's from here on out.
The kid is the real deal though. I've heard others talk about him here, before I heard about him, so he's on the prospect radar.
