Just picked up Aaron Hill, thoughts on him?

Postby jblank » Thu Jun 23, 2005 9:56 am

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.

Agreed, he is a nice plug in in that he won't kill your average, but I am not that high on him do to a lack of power.

Thanks for the info. I wasnt expecting 25HR's outta the guy, but someone who can get runs and hit for a .300+ avg. is what I am needing out of that UTIL spot. You think he can do that?

From a Torontonian's point of view:

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.

Based on this thread and looking at his numbers of late, I've decided to add Hill at my util inf position.

As a Toronto Blue Jay fan, this streak won't last.

He is a good hitter though, and i don't see him falling past .300 this year, although lack of power will keep him from one of my tams.
