Report: Hill, Diamondbacks agree on contract extension

The SportsXchange

Second baseman Aaron Hill and the Arizona Diamondbacks have reached agreement on a three-year, $35 million contract extension, according to multiple reports Friday.

The Diamondback were expected to make a formal annoucement later in the day.

According to Fox Sports, Hill had signed a two-year, $11 million deal last year and was set to become a free agent after this season.

Hill, 30, is coming off an impressive 2012 season when he hit .302 with 26 home runs, 44 doubles and 85 RBI. He also stole 14 bases in 156 games and played solid defense.

The deal with Hill comes a week after the Diamondbacks reached agreement with third baseman Martin Prado on a four-year, $40 million contract. Prado was part of the Justin Upton trade involving the Atlanta Braves.
