Aaron Hill - 15 Day DL - Broken Left Hand

UPDATE: Hill will be out 4-6 weeks after an MRI taken Monday revealed a small fracture in his left hand.

Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill will be placed on the 15-day DL after breaking his left hand. It will be retroactive to April 15 but there is no word on how long he will be sidelined.

This is a huge blow to the Diamondbacks as Hill was hit .308, with 3 doubles, 2 home runs, 6 RBI, 5 runs scored, 5 walks and just 1 strike out.

Martin Prado will be playing second base Tuesday night when Arizona takes on the New York Yankees and it appears he will take over the second base duties until Hill is able to return.

Didi Gregorius will replace Hill on the Diamondbacks roster.

If you are an Aaron Hill fantasy owner and are looking to replace him while he's out, these are some quality options for whose most likely available in your league:

Daniel Murphy (71%)

Omar Infante (27%)

Everth Cabrera (67%)

Emilio Bonifacio (44%)

Chris Getz (3%)

Jedd Gyorko (37%)
